Blackberry mineral and lightly toasted oak. Subtle and complex. Full-bodied with wonderfully sweet fruit character and ultrarefined tannins. Goes on and on. Gorgeous and seductive. Best after 2009. Wine Spectator.

The present-day Cheval Blanc vineyards had vines at least as far back as the 18th century, as shown by Belleyme's map of the region dated 1764. Nearly a century later, the estate was acquired by the Fourcaud- Laussac family, who owned it until 1998, when it was sold to Mr Bernard Arnault and Baron Albert Frère. The vineyard is in a single block, and borders on the Pomerol appellation. An outstanding terroir and unusual proportions of Cabernet Franc and Merlot give this great wine an absolutely unique flavour. Chateau Cheval Blanc has had a greater number of outstanding vintages than any other classified great growth over the past century.Another unusual characteristic of Cheval Blanc is that once it reaches its peak, it maintains it for a very long time. This admirable wine is powerful, soft, rich, round and silky. It has tremendous fruit and elegance as well as exceptional quality from year to year. This timeless and superb wine is like no other.

Deep ruby/purple-color. An extraordinary complex bouquet of fruits, wet earth and light vanilla with hints of mocha, and sweet oak. This opulent concentrated Cheval Blanc possesses finesse, elegance, and freshness. Full-bodied, with amazing tannins and long finish.
