The history of Cheval Blanc began in the eighteenth century, while the current terroir of Cheval Blanc was a modest farm that had a large area of vines, as proven by a map of Belleyme, dated in 1764. Nearly a century later, the property was acquired by the FOURCAUD-LAUSSAC family, which kept it until 1998, when it was sold to Bernard ARNAULT and Baron Albert FRERE.
Terroir & Vinification
The property forms a homogeneous whole in one piece, at the limit of the Pomerol appellation. The conjunction of a terroir of exceptional quality and a grape variety (58% Cabernet Franc and 42% Merlot) which gives its production a very marked organoleptic identity. Also, the reasoned protection of the vineyard is a key word for Cheval Blanc: there has never been any herbicide on its soil.
At the tasting, Chateau Cheval Blanc wine expresses all its grace and prestige through its aromatic complexity and volume. A wine of unique richness that explains why it is considered as one of the greatest red wines in the world.
