Description

The precision and complexity of a great vintage ending in -9 by Cheval Blanc

The estate

Known throughout the world, the Grand Cru Classé A Château Cheval Blanc is one of the legendary winemaking estates of Bordeaux's Right Bank. The property's Second Wine, Petit Cheval, offers a superb introduction to the excellence of Cheval Blanc: a refined, powerful wine, with punchy and delicious fruit on the palate. With a new winery designed by Christian de Portzamparc and inaugurated in June 2011, Château Cheval Blanc continues to be an important part of the legend the great wines of the Bordeaux region.

The vineyard

Château Cheval Blanc boasts a unique and rare terroir and a special position on the Saint-Émilion plateau. While the appellation of Saint-Emilion is known for its limestone formations, Château Cheval Blanc is situated on Quaternary alluvium soils of Isle, a non-limestone formation with a varied texture, combining gravel and clay soils in roughly equal proportions. This unique soils is quite similar to those of the greatest estates of Pomerol.

The vintage

The 2019 vintage had few disease pressures. While the rainy days in June caused fear of mildew, none ever appeared in the vineyard of the Château Cheval Blanc. The ideal climatic conditions during the summer made it possible to start the harvest peacefully with the fruit in perfect health condition. Ultimately, this 2019 vintage allowed the wine to accurately express the identity of the three types of terroir of Château Cheval Blanc. The richness and power of the Merlot was perfectly controlled through a very precise harvest, while the Cabernet ripened more slowly, allowing it to develop very fine tannins.

Blend

Merlot (58%)
Cabernet franc (34%)
Cabernet Sauvignon (8%).

Characteristics and tasting tips for Château Cheval Blanc 2019

Tasting

Nose
The nose impresses with its aromatic complexity. The characteristics of the Merlot grape, which is predominantly present, is expressed in the blend by notes of red and black fruits. Notes of raspberry, cherry, blackberry and blackcurrant emerge with precision, charming the nose with a gourmet sweet sensation and balsamic notes.

Palate
The attack is charming and generous, immediately evoking the full roundness of Merlot. Smooth, the palate is lined with a dense and tender texture. On the mid-palate, Cabernet Franc manifests itself through a great freshness that stretches long into a persistent finish. Combining power, depth, density, freshness and tension, Château Cheval Blanc 2019 is undoubtedly one of the greatest vintages from this iconic property.
