Blend and Origin
2009 Château Cheval Blanc, Saint-Emiliion
This vintage, 55.9% merlot, 42.5% cabernet franc and 1.6% cabernet sauvignon, benefited from an ideal growing season, with flowering and colouring occurring evenly. An uninterrupted, extended ripening period amid consistently warm and clement weather ensured the grapes were juicy and fresh as they arrived in the cellar. The wine was aged 16-17 months in 100% new oak.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
Simple and delicious
A portion of roast pigeon with cumin-seasoned vegetables is a natural choice.
Try the 2009 with grilled steak or lamb chops, alongside seasoned sautéed mushrooms.
Dark chocolate desserts, or those with apples or pears, are ideal complements.
