Genaral Information:

Chateau Cheval Blanc is a special wine, as you might expect when you look at the price! The vineyard was originally part of what was Chateau Figeac, still a great wine in St. Emilion in the early 1800's and was split off, along with other parcels, when the owner of Chateau Figeac broke up the larger estate. Since that time, the wine was classified as one of two "Premier Grand Cru Classe A" in St. Emilion, the other being Chateau Ausone. The vineyard itself is interesting. One third can be said to be closer to Pomerol, with which Cheval Blanc shares a border, one third close to Graves, where much of the soil is quite gravelly and the last third typically St. Emilion. Taken together, these terroirs seem to produce something quite special. The vineyard is planted to about 50% Cabernet Franc, 47% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2006 contains no Cabernet Sauvignon. Wine Spectator gave the 2006 Cheval Blanc 95 points and said: "Displays lots of milk chocolate, cedar, berry and cappuccino aromas. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins, this is structured and layered for the vintage. Mouth puckering. This is one of the wines of the vintage. Best after 2015."
