Winemakers Note

Cheval Blanc: Pioneering Excellence The roots of viticulture at Cheval Blanc extend back to the 15th century. In 1998, two devoted wine enthusiasts, Bernard Arnault and Baron Albert Frère, united their passions to acquire this historic gem nestled in Saint-Emilion. Spanning 39 hectares, the vineyard's borders have remained unchanged for over a century and a half. This remarkable inheritance is a vibrant mosaic comprised of 45 distinct parcels. The terroir's distinctiveness arises from a harmonious blend of fine, clay-rich soils, and gravelly terrain. It's this unique combination that has made Cheval Blanc renowned for its unusually high proportion of Cabernet Franc, the principal grape variety since 1911. Cheval Blanc stands as a pioneering force in agroforestry. Recognizing the imperative of preserving the fragile yet enchanting ecosystem for future generations, the dedicated teams, under the guidance of Pierre-Olivier Clouet, undertook transformative practices. They embarked on a mission to introduce an abundance of trees within the vineyards, championing biodiversity and rejuvenating the soil's fertility.
