Tasting Notes

"The 2005 Cheval Blanc is a blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc. Medium to deep garnet-brick colored, it needs a lot of time and patient swirling to reveal an achingly fragrant nose of kirsch, potpourri, crushed rocks, and menthol with emerging wafts of roses, underbrush, and blackberry pie. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers a rock-solid supporting wall of firm, grainy tannins with a taut, muscular, multilayered black fruit core, accented by loads of floral and mineral sparks, finishing long and oh so fragrant. You can consider drinking this now, but it is still a little tightly wound and closed. Expect that next-level experience to come with another 5-10 years in bottle, then watch it strut its stuff over the following 30 years+."

The Producer

Château Cheval Blanc

The vineyard has been owned by the Fourcaud-Laussac family for more than 150 years. In 1998, the estate was bought by the Belgian Albert Frère and Bernard Arnault and administered by Pierre Lurton (who also runs Château d'Yquem).

Since 1998, Château Cheval Blanc has partnered with the Argentinian estate Terrazas de los Andes, also belonging to the LVMH group, to create Cheval des Andes from Cabernet and Malbec grape varieties. In 2012, Bernard Arnault decided to create a brand of high-end hotels using the name. The Cheval Blanc estate is on the edge of Pomerol, so the soil of the vineyard has a large proportion of gravel on a subsoil of Quaternary alluvium. The Cheval Blanc grape variety is made up of 52% Cabernet Franc, 43% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, which is quite rare for a Saint-Émilion.
