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.

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2014

Bright red-ruby.  Ripe, scented aromas of raspberry, strawberry, violet, licorice, cedar and wild herbs on the knockout nose.  Wonderfully sappy and juicy but not thick, with intense, very pure red berry, white pepper, floral and cedar flavors showing terrific thrust and lift.  Finishes dense and long, with repeating floral, white pepper and red berry nuances.  Boasts a serious spine for cellaring, and the youthfully chewy tannins will need time.  An essence of cabernet franc:  when Cheval Blanc aces this variety, it's one of the most unique--and greatest--wines in the world.  There just aren't too many wines anywhere (Lafleur excepted, perhaps) that can express the variety like Cheval does.  Apparently the cabernet franc percentage was increased to 57%, up from the 52% I had been told was in the blend at the Primeurs.
