Château Cheval Blanc - Saint Emilion Grand Cru Red 2011
Medium to deep garnet in colour, the 2011 Cheval Blanc features a nose of warm mulberries, preserved plums and figs with suggestions of dried herbs, dusty soil and underbrush plus a touch of Sichuan pepper. Medium to full-bodied, taut and muscular in the mouth, it has a solid frame of chewy tannins supporting the restrained fruit and a long earth and Provence herbs-layered finish.

About The Winery
Situated on the edge of the Pomerol appellation, Château Cheval Blanc has been in the commune of Saint-Emilion for two centuries. It was established in the middle of the 19th century and since then, for over 150 years it has been run by only two families, joined by marriage. Since those origins so long ago and up to the present day, ownership passed hands only once Bernard Arnault and Baron Albert Frère purchased this prestigious estate in 1998.ar.
