Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé A.

- +

2010 is an exceptional vintage. Historically dry weather and cool nights have

allowed to harvest grapes of optimal maturity which offer a wine of perfect balance
combining concentration and finesse.

It is a blend of 50% Cabernet Franc, 48% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The red color is dark and intense,

The nose is very complex and deep, typical of a great Cabernet Franc, marked by the complexity of the fruity aromas and the freshness of the floral aromas. Fresh fig, blackcurrant, blackberry, cherry and raspberry mingle with bergamot and mint zest.

After aeration, it is the floral freshness that predominates with its noble aromas of violets.

On the palate, the attack is slender and the fine-grained, long tannins blend into the richness and density of a full and silky mid-palate.

Since 1871, the surface area of ​​Château Cheval Blanc has remained unchanged: 41 hectares including 37 hectares in one piece located on the Saint-Emilion plateau at the edge of the Pomerol appellation.

The vines are planted on roughly identical clay-gravelly soil in the subsoil, supplemented with ferric concretions in places, thus forming a unique terroir.

The average age of the vineyard is 40 years but the oldest vines date back to 1920.

The grape variety is original and very specific: Cabernet franc: 49%, Merlot 47% and Cabernet Sauvignon 4%. The production is of the order of 156 barrels depending on the vintage, ie around 180 to 190,000 bottles for a very low yield per hectare of 3,500 liters.

Château Cheval Blanc is Grand Cru Classé A, the highest step in the Saint-Emilion classification since 1954 and at the origin of this classification.

All the harvest is manual and the wine is aged each year in new barrels for the whole for 18 months before bottling.
