En Primeur Château Cheval Blanc will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
Cheval Blanc obtained the highest possible distinction in the first classification of Saint-Emilion wines in 1954: Premier Grand Cru Classé “A”. This exalted rank was confirmed in every following classification in each subsequent decade. Cheval Blanc became a member of the exclusive “Club of 9” comprising the first growths of Bordeaux.
In the autumn of 1998, Bernard Arnault and Baron Albert Frère, two old friends and lovers of great wine, joined forces to become owners of this fabled château in Saint-Emilion. They injected a dynamic new spirit while respecting the château’s history and existing facilities. They also placed their complete trust in the winemaking team to continue their good work. The priority today is the ultimate in quality, which calls for enormous attention to detail and precision winemaking
The historic vineyard landscape is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. What makes Cheval Blanc so unique is three main soil types – fine-textured with clay, more coarsely textured with gravel, and large gravel with sand – that constitute a veritable patchwork.
The most is made of this natural advantage thanks to an original combination of grape varieties: 52% Cabernet Franc, 43% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
