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 Cheval Blanc 2022 is a blend of 46% Cabernet Franc, 53% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine was allowed to mature for 16 months in 100% new barrels. It is a very intense and complex wine with fresh and floral aromas. Expect a strong and full taste due to the warm weather. 2022 was one of the driest vintages for this producer. The buds opened around March and around the end of July the Merlot started to ripen. The grapes were harvested from August 29 to September 20, one of the earliest harvests ever.
