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.

Expert Reviews

93(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - October 2011

(a 53/47 blend of cabernet franc and merlot; 13% alcohol; yield of 45 h/h):  Bright red.  Pure aromas of strawberry, flowers, soy sauce, espresso and minerals.  Then clean and straightforward on the palate, with nicely balanced flavors similar to the aromas.  Finishes very long and smooth.  A very good Cheval Blanc, bigger than the 1996 but perhaps a touch less delineated; choosing between the two amounts to a case of different strokes for different folks.  This was a warm year:  temperatures during the 1995 growing season were on average 1.5°C higher than the previously recorded annual averages, with a very hot July and August, and the harvest took place early, between September 15 and 28.  In fact, only the 1989 and 1990 harvests began earlier.
