Cheval Blanc Castle

Château Cheval Blanc. Owned by LVMH, the latest big event at the estate, other than its excellent 100 Parker score, has been the unveiling of the new wine store. A canopy of white moulded cement that stretches out over the vineyards and covers 52 cement tanks. This marvel designed by Christian Portzamparc makes for a spectacular setting for the venerable Cheval Blanc wines. Pierre Lurton runs the estate with a rigorous and strong environmental and ecological conscience, which doesn’t however exclude innovation and Art with a capital “A”. The Premier Grand Cru Classé Saint-Émilion is smart and sober like a pashmina. The blend’s uniqueness is the high ratio of cabernet franc in its assembly. A grape variety that brings a cover of freshness to the merlot and enables it to travel well through time. A wine that should absolutely be put down, Cheval Blanc is an invitation to future tastings.
