Chateau Cheval Blanc Rouge 2012

Château Cheval Blanc is one of the few wineries whose wines are subject to the highest quality standards. Located in Saint-Émilion, close to the famous "wine city" of Bordeaux, the estate extends next to the Pomerol wine-growing region, which produces equally first-class quality wines. Since 1998, the 37-hectare vineyard has been owned by the two families Arnault and Frère, who acquired the estate for 131 million euros.Grape variety(ies): 54% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Franc

Description

The estate's wines benefit from optimal growing conditions. The vineyards are spread over a seven-metre-thick layer of gravel, whose origins can be traced to the Ice Age, when the River Isle, a tributary of the Dordogne, washed up the layers of sand from the Massif Central. As the sandy soils benefit the ripening process and the taste of the vines, Château Cheval Blanc and the neighbouring estates La Tour-Figeac, La Dominique and Figeac are close to each other. The Cabernet Franc grape variety seems to thrive best on the estate's soils, which is why it takes up around 60 percent of the cultivated land. The Merlot grape variety accounts for the rest.
