CHATEAU
In 1832 Château Figeac sold 15 hectares/37 acres to M. Laussac-Fourcaud, including part of the narrow gravel ridge that runs through Figeac and neighboring vineyards and reaches Château Pétrus just over the border in Pomerol. This became Château Cheval Blanc which, in the International London and Paris Exhibitions in 1862 and 1867, won medals still prominent on its labels.
The château remained in the family until 1998 when it was sold to Bernard Arnault, chairman of luxury goods group LVMH, and Belgian businessman Albert Frère, with Pierre Lurton installed as estate manager, a constellation similar to that of the group's other chief property Château d'Yquem.

42% merlot, 58% cabernet franc

To drink

Winemaking at Cheval Blanc is all about tradition, reflecting a commitment to achieve harmony and balance. Each plot is managed individually, the cycles of the vine are respected, with a continual adaptation to the nature of the grape and careful, time-honored practices. Château Cheval Blanc is faithful to the values that have guided its path to excellence: audacity, humility, exacting professionalism, expertise, timeless quality and savoir-faire. Cheval Blanc is legitimately equated with a truly unique haute culture.
D'un rubis grenat relativement foncé, un peu tuilé, il déploie un bouquet de bois de cèdre et de tabac doux, et se révèle onctueux, épanoui et rond en bouche, où il déploie une concentration satisfaisante et des tannins ronds. C'est un vin assez corsé, mais souple, qui n'a cependant pas la précision et la concentration que l'on attend d'un premier grand cru
