Located on the Right Bank in the commune of Saint-Émilion, lies the most celebrated and coveted wine in the region: Château Cheval Blanc. Cheval Blanc is one of only four estates to enjoy St. Émilion’s highest classification of Premier Grand Cru Classé A status. Its vineyards are planted to 52% Cabernet Franc, 43% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The property borders Pomerol in the northwestern portion of St. Émilion. It is this fortuitous located that gives Cheval Blanc is uniqueness and gravitas. 40% of its soil is gravel with streaks of the famous blue clay of Pomerol. This blend of soils gives it the finest attributes of both left bank wines and right bank wines. The Cabernet Franc focused blends of Cheval Blanc enjoy the opulence and texture of Pomerol, with the fruit, structure and aromatic complexity of both the left bank and the right. The wines are rich and full bodied but never heavy, can be aged for decades or enjoyed young. The voluptuous yet structured wines of Château Cheval Blanc truly offer the wine lover “the best of both worlds”.
