    2012 Château Cheval Blanc, Saint-Emiliion

    While overall 2012 was dry and warm in Saint-Émilion, a very wet spring and early summer meant shoot development and flowering in the vineyards was uneven. Fortunately, a dry end to the season helped the grapes to ripen fully – though the harvest was slightly later than usual. This vintage was aged in new oak barrels for 18 months, yet it reveals no hints of oak. Blend: 53% merlot, 45% cabernet franc and 2% cabernet sauvignon. 


Food pairing:
Perfect for a variety of traditional dishes

Main

Try a warming slow-roasted shoulder of lamb with this vintage – any dish featuring red meat or game is a match that will delight.

Dessert

An assortment of nutty, aged hard cheeses will be a lovely match.
