Château Cheval Blanc

What wine lover hasn't heard of Château Cheval Blanc, one of Bordeaux's most unmissable and legendary wines? It was in 1832 that Domaine was purchased by Jean-Jacques Ducasse, president of the Libourne court, who contributed to its development.

He climbed the prestige ladder and, in 1878, won his first gold medal at the Paris Exposition Universelle. The excellence of Cheval Blanc wines would continue to be recognized the world over for decades to come.

In 1998, the estate was handed over to Bernard Arnault and Baron Albert Frère, both of whom breathed new life into Domaine, while respecting its history and heritage.

Description Le Petit Cheval 2014.

With its superb, brilliant crimson color tinged with ruby highlights, the wine soon expresses a complex aromatic palette.

Intense blackcurrant and blueberry mingle with a floral dimension, with violets enhancing the whole.

On the palate, the attack is straightforward and concentrated, but quickly gives way to more roundness.

The tannins are velvety and delicate, coating flavors of fruit and dark chocolate.

Interminable, it finally blooms on persistent vanilla notes.
