About Chateau Cheval Blanc

In 1998, the Fourcaud-Laussacs family sold Chateau Cheval Blanc to Albert Frere and Bernard Arnaut, but not before they stamped an indelible seal of quality on this St. Emilion estate. Today its stellar reputation continues, bolstered by the hard work of Pierre Lurton, also of Chateau d'Yquem.

96(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2008

($1; 800-$2,000) Good deep ruby-red. Knockout nose offers terrific vinosity to the aromas of dark raspberry, mocha, minerals, licorice, menthol and dark chocolate. Lush, fat and suave, with superb energy and lift to the fine-grained, palate-staining flavors. Despite its rather high 14% alcohol, this boasts near-perfect balance and finishes with outstanding verve. A great vintage for Cheval, and likely to improve in bottle for at least two or three decades.
