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.
89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2013
(75% merlot and 25% cabernet franc): Good deep ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of cassis, violet and chocolate enlivened by fresh herbs. Wonderfully full for a second wine, with lovely mineral lift to the flavors of black fruits, menthol and chocolate. But not quite the nobility of tannins or length for 90 points.
