Château Cheval Blanc
Château Cheval Blanc is located in the westernmost part of the commune of Saint-Émilion, bordering Pomerol. We are within the Bordeaux wine region, the real beating heart of France for what concerns the production of great red wines, renowned and known in every corner of the world.
It was in 1832 that the Domaine was bought by Jean-Jacques Ducasse, president of the court of Libourne, who contributed to its development. His prestige increased in 1862 and 78, when he won the gold medal at the Universal Exhibition in London and Paris. The excellence of Cheval Blanc wines was recognized worldwide for the following decades. In 1998, the handover to Bernard Arnault and Baron Albert Frère gave new life to the Chateau, respecting its history and heritage. Today, under the direction of Pierre Lurton, the pursuit of perfect quality, vintage after vintage, remains the creed of the company.
Since 1955 Château Cheval Blanc has been classified as a Premier Grand Cru Classé in the super-category “A” and, year after year, conquers connoisseurs with its charm. Cabernet franc, merlot and cabernet sauvignon are grown among the rows, which cover approximately 39 hectares, divided into a mosaic of 45 different parcels.
