ESTATE HISTORY

Vines have been grown at the place named Cheval Blanc for centuries and the vineyard of Saint-Emilion has produced wines of outstanding quality year after year, decade after decade, since late antiquity… they are some of the most acclaimed in the world – and the mythical Château Cheval Blanc is at their forefront.

TERROIR

After the atypical 2003 vintage, the weather in 2004 was much more typical of the Bordeaux climate, with close-to-average temperatures and precipitation. 2004 Cheval Blanc is a classic wine that epitomises the successful marriage of Cabernet Franc and Merlot.

WINEMAKING

Aged in 100% new oak barrels for 16 to 17 months.

TASTING & FOOD PAIRINGS

The wine is very classic, with excellent freshness, aromatic precision, and silky tannin​.
2004 Cheval Blanc is powerful and classy, with great aromatic freshness and a bouquet that is both fruity and floral.

The beautiful long aftertaste features hints of cashew. This fine wine is the successful marriage between the estate’s two main grape varieties. it is fairly representative of a vintage with normal weather conditions in Saint Emilion. It features fine structure and beautiful balance that will enable it to age for several decades.

Pairing with food lies at the very heart of Cheval Blanc’s DNA. In the same way that Cabernet Franc and Merlot are the perfect match in blends, this First Growth Class A shows at its very best when served with food.

Château Cheval Blanc goes particularly well with fish such as monkfish, cod, turbot and John Dory, especially if accompanied by earthy ingredients like mushrooms, for example.
