Château Cheval Blanc (2016)

New

There is real freshness in the 2016 Cheval Blanc. Dark ruby, it has strong aromatics of red berries and blue fruit. The palate is fresh with creamy, well-integrated, ripe, silky tannins alongside a spicy, crunchy acidity. It dances across the tongue with a flicker of polished fruit, finishing with a suave, polished character and a classy richness.

    Château Cheval Blanc, a 1er Grand Cru Classé (A) is unquestionably the leading estate in St. Emilion. It is located in the north-west of the St. Emilion appellation, bordering Pomerol.

     

    Cheval Blanc's vineyards (Merlot 39%, Cabernet Franc 57%, Malbec 3%, Cabernet Sauvignon 1%) enjoy a variety of soils: gravel, clay and sand, all underpinned by an impermeable sedimentary rock (`crasse de fer'). Fermentation and maceration last 4 weeks in stainless steel vats, followed by 18 months' maturation in new oak barrels.

     

    Cheval Blanc produces the most famous Cabernet Franc-based wine in the world and present régisseur Pierre Lurton is amongst the most talented winemakers working in Bordeaux today. Cheval Blanc requires a minimum 10 years of bottle age and the best vintages can last for 50 years or more.
