Chateau Cheval Blanc

Chateau Cheval Blanc

Der Wein von Cheval Blanc wird als einer der exotischsten und zugleich profundesten Bordeaux-Weine angesehen. Er ist gekennzeichnet von einer eleganten Zurückhaltung, bei voller Präsenz aller Elemente hervorragenden Rotweines, Fruchtaromen, Tannine, Textur, langer Nachhall, Ausgewogenheit. Er wird daher auch in allgemein schwächeren Jahrgängen hoch eingeschätzt und regelmäßig weit über Durchschnitt bewertet. Die besten Weine wurden von Robert Parker wie folgt bewertet: 2005 (Weinbewertung: 96 PP), 2000 (100 PP), 1998 (98+ PP), 1990 (98PP), 1982 (92 PP), 1964 (96 PP). Eine Sonderstellung genießt der Wein von 1947. Vorausgesetzt, er stammt aus guter Abfüllung und wurde einwandfrei gelagert, wird er als Ikone des Rotweines aus Bordeaux eingeschätzt und extrem hoch gehandelt. Aktuelle Auktionspreise liegen im Bereich von 2500 bis 3000 Euro für die Normalflasche. Es sind jedoch eine Vielzahl von schlechten Abfüllungen und auch gefälschte Neubefüllungen dieses Ultra-Weines im Markt bekanntgeworden. Das Château befindet sich im äußersten Nordwesten des Gebietes der Appellation von Saint-Émilion, in unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft zur Gemeinde Pomerol. Der 37 Hektar große Weinberg profitiert von einer geologischen Besonderheit: Er liegt auf bis zu sieben Meter dicken Kiesablagerungen, die der Fluss Isle in der Günz-Eiszeit aus dem Zentralmassiv herangeführt hat. Château Cheval Blanc teilt sich die Kuppe mit den benachbarten Châteaux La Tour-Figeac, Figeac und La Dominique. Château Cheval Blanc- Jahrgang 1981 Der vom übrigen Saint-Émilion gänzlich verschiedene Bodentyp hat auch eine andere Rebsortenwahl zur Folge. Der Kiesboden eignet sich hervorragend für den Anbau von Cabernet Franc, auf den insgesamt 58 % der Rebfläche entfällt; die restlichen 42 % entfallen auf den in Saint-Émilion allgegenwärtigen Merlot. Das Durchschnittsalter der Reben liegt bei rund 40 Jahre.

Robert Parker bewertet den Jahrgang 2011 mit 95 von 100 Punkten, Zusammensetzung: 52 % Cabernet Franc, 48 % Merlot

Wein enthält Sulfide

The 2011 Cheval Blanc is one of the more plump, opulent and sexy Cheval Blancs made over recent vintages, and its forwardness, lusciousness and complexity seemingly suggest this wine is on a fast evolutionary track. The wine exhibits a dense ruby/purple/plum color, a medium to full-bodied opulence, a sumptuous mid-palate (atypical for the vintage), and a lush, heady finish. It is a super, complex, evolved Cheval Blanc that can be drunk now or cellared for 15+ years. Bravo!

Score: 95 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (212), May 2014

Somewhat reminiscent of their brilliant 1998, the 2011 Cheval Blanc has turned out to be a top-notch success. Its deep garnet/plum/purple color is followed by hints of blueberry confiture intermixed with raspberries, mocha, damp forest and a hint of mint. Exhibiting a velvety, opulent texture along with considerable class and flesh as well as sweet tannin, this flavorful, forward 2011 should drink beautifully for two decades or more. The harvest at this estate lasted from September 6 through October 1 (for the Cabernet Franc).

Score: 94/96 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (200), April 2012

The Cheval Blanc is a blend of 52% Cabernet Franc and 48% Merlot picked from 6th September finishing on 2nd October. The bouquet is reticent at first and so I allow the sample to warm a little in the glass over five minutes. It unfurls nicely to offer a classic Cheval Blanc nose with the Cabernet Franc exhibiting those floral aromas, more dried rose petal than say violets. It is a slightly aloof nose, not one that comes running to you like the 2009 or 2010. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, slightly chalky tannins. It is well balanced with a fine tannic backbone, imbued with a sense of symmetry that Cheval Blanc has been honing in recent vintages. It displays fine minerality, remaining strict and linear towards the finish, although this may flesh out a little during maturation. A comparatively foursquare Cheval Blanc, one that will repay considerable ageing. Tasted April 2012.

Score: 94/96 Neal Martin,, April 2012

This is very concentrated for the vintage with lots of blueberry character and new wood. It's full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a fruity finish. This is a little full-throttle, with loads of fruit, but it will come together nicely with bottle age. Better than the 2010. Try in 2017.

Score: 92 James Suckling,, February 2014

A beautiful nose of ripe black fruits such blackberries, as well as cocoa, black truffle and mint. Full body with a solid core of very refined tannins that lasts for minutes. Very refined texture, especially for the vintage. 57% cabernet franc and 43% merlot. Try after seven to eight years.

Score: 94 James Suckling,, January 2014

A really beautiful wine with super silky tannins with chocolate, spice, berries and spices. Full body, with super polished tannins and a long, long finish. The first wine from the new winery of Cheval. Very precise. Very polished. Cabernet Franc gives the quality.

Robert Parker bewertet den Jahrgang 2013 mit 94 von 100 Punkten, Zusammensetzung: 53% Cabernet Franc - 47% Merlot

Wein enthält Sulfide

The final blend of the 2013 Cheval Blanc is 53% Cabernet Franc and 47% Merlot. It is a light- to medium-bodied, but stylish, perfumed, complex wine exhibiting hints of forest floor, raspberries and underbrush in a gentle, nicely textured style that builds incrementally in the mouth. Attractive fruit and substance give the wine more completeness than many of its peers. Administrator Pierre Lurton compares it, in a positive manner, to the style of the 2001, but I do not think it has quite the richness of that vintage. Nevertheless, this is an early-maturing, easygoing Cheval Blanc to drink in its first 10-12 years of life.

Cheval Blanc began their harvest on September 26 and, because of the tropical humidity and disease pressure, finished quickly.

Score: 89/91 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (#214), August 2014

The 2013 Cheval Blanc, a blend of 49% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Cabernet Franc (and that is the correct blend!), is darker in color than the 2013 Le Petit Cheval. It has a fragrant bouquet with raspberry preserves, wild strawberries and hints of truffle from the Cabernet Franc - one of the most pleasurable you will find in this vintage. The palate is smooth on the entry with sappy red berry fruit, nicely judged acidity, harmonious and lilting in style with good body and density on the finish. There is a huge difference between the deuxième and grand vin this year. Enjoy this fine Cheval Blanc over the next 10-15 years.

Score: 92 Neal Martin, (227), October 2016

The Cheval Blanc 2013 is a blend of 52% Cabernet Franc and 48% Merlot, representing around 60% of the total production. It has a complex bouquet, introverted at first with pure black, mineral rich fruit that feels as if it is holding everything back for later. The palate has commendable purity considering the growing season - certainly with no sign of greenness. It might lack a little flair, but it is very focused with fine tension on the linear finish. Whilst this might be construed as a conservative Cheval Blanc, the addition of all the parcels in the blend has created a very well balanced, engaging Saint Emilion, one that might deserve a higher score post-bottling.

Score: 91/93 Neal Martin,, April 2014

This is has a very beautiful structure and length for a 2013. Full to medium body, ultra fine tannins and a long and lively finish. Impressive. Racy and refined. Tight still. Better in 2018 but pretty now.

Score: 94 James Suckling,, February 2016

Seductive. This is incredibly floral with violets, raspberries and hints nutmeg. Full to medium body, with a pretty density and freshness. Silky and refined. Velvety wine. Creamy. Attractive tannin backbone. Fascinating Cheval Blanc. Subtle. Reminds me of 1971 or a baby 2001. 52% cabernet franc and 48% merlot.

Robert Parker bewertet den Jahrgang 2014 mit 96 von 100 Punkten, Zusammensetzung: 55% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc

Wein enthält Sulfide

The 2014 Cheval Blanc does not convey the same sophistication and panache as the Angélus. This is more rugged and earthier, quite powerful with pencil lead and sous-bois aromas developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, plenty of blackberry laced with cedar, mint, fruitcake and white pepper notes. It finishes with some style and it feels very long on the finish. I just think that unlike Angélus this is going to need several years to really knit together. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. 2022 - 2055

Score: 95 Neal Martin,, March 2018

The 2014 Cheval Blanc is a blend of 45% Cabernet Franc and 55% Merlot, picked from 19 September until 8 October. It has a very succinct, almost understated bouquet, here a mixture of red and black fruit, cold limestone and crushed rose petals (the latter observed when the wine was in barrel). It is not a set of aromatics that go out and grab your attention, rather the sophistication creeps up on you. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin. Unlike the Deuxième Vin, there is real structure and backbone here, a gentle but insistent grip in the mouth. It errs towards black instead of red fruit, intermingling with sage and cumin, then segueing into a precise finish with a long, lingering ferrous finish (à la Pomerol!), finally a hint of oyster shell on the aftertaste. It is one of the most subtle Cheval Blancs that I have tasted in a long time, although it will doubtlessly be deceptively long lived. This is a serious Cheval Blanc for serious oenophiles. Drink 2020-205

Score: 96 Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (Interim En), April 2017

The Château Cheval Blanc 2014 is a blend of 45% Cabernet Franc and 55% Merlot, picked from 19 September until 8 October. The alcohol level is 13.25% matured in 100% new oak, which Pierre Lurton told me was prolonged due to the heterogenous soils and wanting to wait for the Cabernet Franc on clay soils to reach full maturity. It is quintessential Cheval Blanc on the nose: predominantly red fruit here rather than black, touches of incense and dried roses, a dab of liquorice underneath. The Cabernet Franc is the engine behind the aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin. This is not a silky smooth Cheval Blanc – here there is an graininess to the tannin that exert a gentle grip in the mouth. It is a complex and cerebral wine with cracked black pepper on the almost ferrous finish. Like the second wine, it is linear and fresh, in some ways reminiscent of the string of superb wines produced in the 1980s. This is a formidable Cheval Blanc whose evolution will be fascinating to witness. Drink: 2019 - 2045

Score: 95/97 Neal Martin, (218), April 2015

Aromas of strawberries, flowers and rose petals. Medium to full body and such beautiful polish and finesse. The texture is remarkably silky. It’s a wine all in elegance and harmony. Such length. Try in 2022 but already a joy to taste.

Score: 96 James Suckling,, February 2017

There is a little more cabernet franc than normal. Full body with fine and silky tannins, and a deep and beautiful fruit and acid balance. Wet earth, dried flowers and dried fruits. A beautiful length. Dense and compacted. Very fine tannins.

Score: 95/96 James Suckling,, April 2015

A wine of exceptional finesse, the 2014 Cheval Blanc lifts from the glass with captivating aromatics and sculpted red-fleshed fruit, all with the extra kick of acidity and overall freshness that are such a signature of this vintage. The 2014 is bright, finessed and persistent. It will almost certainly put on weight in bottle. I have a feeling something special is developing here.

Score: 96+ Antonio Galloni,, February 2017

Tasted blind. Real freshness here on the nose even if there is a slight lack of concentration. A hint of saltiness. Very appetising and rewarding without anything forced. Not that rich but very grown-up and sophisticated. Just about the first 2014 I was tempted to drink.
Drink 2023-2043

Score: 18.5 Jancis Robinson MW,, February 2018

75% production. 45% Cabernet Franc, 55% Merlot. All the terroirs of the property but especially the gravel .
Bright ruby, gentle and rather muted. Very cool . No drama! Gentle and rather balletic. Some burgundian force towards the end of the palate. Lots to chew on and rather different from the old style. A flight from drama! 13.25%

Chateau Cheval Blanc 2015, Bewertung 100 von 100 Parker Punkte, Wein enthält Sulfide

Wine Advocate-Parker :
As many readers may know, 2015 was the first year since 1988 that Cheval Blanc did not produce its second wine, Petit Cheval. This said, parts of two of the Cheval Blanc blocks were not used at allùPlot 17A and the north part of Plot 10ùwhich had problems with water availability during the dry spell, and the fruit was sold for bulk. Therefore, this vintage of the Grand Vin equates to roughly 90% of the total production, making it one of the most complete expressions of Cheval Blanc ever produced. Composed of 53% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cheval Blanc slowly opens up to reveal plum preserves, black forest cake, blackberry pie and pronounced licorice notes with suggestions of cloves, cinnamon stick, star anise, dried Provence herbs and lavender plus wafts of iron ore and dusty soil. Medium to full-bodied, rich and densely packed with incredible layers of black, red and blue fruits, it completely fills the palate with energy and expression, framed by very ripe, wonderfully velvety tannins and a racy line of acid, finishing with incredible length and poise. At once achingly graceful and captivatingly cerebral, this is a legendary vintage for this great estate.
