2019 Château Cheval Blanc 1er Grand Cru Classé Saint-Emilion
Together with Château Pétrus and Ausone, Château Cheval Blanc is one of the legends of the Right Bank. Always possesses enormous concentration, but at the same time finesse and freshness. This cru is owned by the Belgian Albert Frère and Bernard Arnault. It is Pierre Lurton (from the Dominique Lurton branch) who vinifies the wine (just like in Château d'Yquem). This year the vinification took place for the fifth time in the ultra-modern new chais of the architect Christian de Portzamparc. 50 specially shaped (tronconical) concrete cuvees are used for microvinification per plot. Concrete was chosen because it has good thermal insulation and a tronconical shape because it ensures a gentler extraction of the berries for better fermentation. Everything is also vinified using the principle of gravity (so the wine or berries are no longer pumped up). A gigantic investment in the service of quality! The 2019 vintage received the maximum score of 1000 out of 100 points from Parker (Wine Advocate).
