2018 Cheval Blanc 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 98+ points
Drink by: 2027 - 2057
The 2018 Cheval Blanc is a blend of 54% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, with a 3.75 pH and 14.5% alcohol. Deep garnet-purple colored, it needs considerable swirling and air to releases fragrant notes of stewed plums, juicy black cherries and ripe blackberries with underlying suggestions of damp soil, black truffles, rose oil and cardamom with wafts of underbrush and iron ore.
"A page was turned in autumn of 1998 when Bernard Arnault and Baron Albert Frere, two old friends and lovers of great wine, joined forces to became the owners of this fabled Château in Saint-Emilion. They injected a dynamic new spirit, while respecting the Château’s history and existing facilities. They also placed their complete trust in the winemaking team to continue their good work.
Furthermore, Cheval Blanc is resolutely turned towards the future. This is epitomised by the impressive new cellar adjacent to the Château. Designed by Christian de Portzamparc, winner of the 1994 Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1994, this was completed in June 2011. Reflecting the desire of Baron Albert Frere and Bernard Arnault, this building is both futuristic and in keeping with the surrounding historic vineyard landscape listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO."
