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.
87-90 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011
(75% merlot and 25% cabernet franc) Bright ruby. Spicy, floral notes of ripe blackberry and blackcurrant. Bright and fresh on entry, showing mineral and black fruit flavors, then a little hollow in the mid-palate. Finishes smooth and persistent. This Petit Cheval has a little more merlot than usual in the blend, as this year most of the estate's cabernet franc went into Cheval Blanc. This second wine represents a selection of 20% of the total production in 2010, with another 20% sold off in bulk.
