Blend and Origin
2000 Château Cheval Blanc, Saint-Emiliion
This vintage – 53% merlot and 47% cabernet franc – benefited from warm, dry weather leading up to the harvest. The winter in 2000 was wet and mild, and the spring temperate but rainy. A dry and warm June was followed by a wet July, after which a long dry spell set in. Rigorous grape selection, expert blending and ageing in 100% new oak resulted in this outstanding wine.
Additional delivery charges may apply. This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
Classic French dishes are the perfect choice
A creamy cheese soufflé will enhance the silkiness of this wine.
Game, and both red and white meat are natural matches with this sublime Saint-Emilion. For this intense red, try grilled steak with sautéed mushrooms, or beef Rossini with eggplant caviar.
Desserts featuring apple or pear, or a dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa) are sure to delight.
