CHATEAU cheval blanc

BORDEAUX | FRANCE

Cheval Blanc’s 37 hectares lie at some distance from Saint-Émilion, on the boundary of the appellation lands where they touch Pomerol. Cheval Blanc has some well-known names as neighbours: Petrus, Vieux Château Certan, Figeac and La Conseillante. Its soil make-up is a complex mosaic, with a layer of gravel and sand lying over clay subsoil.

Having remained in the founder's descendants' hands until 1998, Cheval Blanc was bought by Bernard Arnault and Baron Albert Frère, who entrusted its management to Pierre Lurton, who also runs Château d’Yquem, the illustrious Sauternes estate.

Cheval Blanc has a unique personality, thanks to its complex soils and original blend of grape varieties.
