    2011 Château Cheval Blanc, Saint-Emiliion

    Conditions in Bordeaux in 2011 were dry but not excessively so – ideal for the development of concentrated fruits. Warm spring weather led to early flowering, but cool weather in July, periods of rain in August and fine weather in September allowed the grapes to ripen slowly. This blend of 52% cabernet franc, 47% merlot, 1% cabernet sauvignon is a classic and elegant vintage.


Food pairing:
Classic dishes for a classic vintage

Starter

Begin with a mushroom mille-feuilles, as its earthy flavours are a natural match.

Main

Roasted pigeon flavoured with marjoram, beetroot and truffles will pair well, as will a decadent dish of tournedos Rossini – again, featuring truffles.

Dessert

This vintage is well suited to a variety of desserts made with dark – at least 70% cocoa – chocolate.
