What makes Cheval Blanc so unusual is three main soil types – fine-textured with clay, more coarsely textured with gravel, and large gravel with sand – that constitute a veritable patchwork. This singular terroir is made up primarily of clay and large-size gravel in certain plots and sandy soil with smaller gravel in other parts. Some estates in Saint-Emilion have excellent gravelly soil, while others in Saint-Emilion and Pomerol have very good clay soils.  Cheval Blanc, on the other hand, is blessed with both types of soil in fairly equal proportions. Blend: 49% Cabernet Franc, 51% Merlot.

The color is exceptionally deep, dark, and intense.

The nose is rich, with ripe black fruit aromas. In fact, this wine is rich in every respect.

On the palate, It shows concentrated black fruit as well as a beautiful tannic texture – the sign of great Cabernet Franc.

The aftertaste is tremendously long and generous, the sign of an outstanding year. Marked by Cabernet Franc in superb condition contributing elegance and complexity, this vintage also features the power and richness of similarly successful Merlot grapes.

The extraordinary length is indicative of a wine that will last for several generations.
