Blend and Origin
2010 Château Cheval Blanc, Saint-Emiliion
The splendid 2010 was among the driest seasons on record in Bordeaux, and the grapes – 50% cabernet franc, 48% merlot and 2% cabernet sauvignon in this blend – were naturally concentrated. The harvest was extended, with vineyard workers able to pick plot by plot, allowing each varietal to reach its ideal level of ripeness. The blend was aged in new oak barrels for 18 months.
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
Pair with dishes inspired by France's finest
Beef fillet or pork belly with a luxurious Périgord sauce of madeira and earthy black truffles is an exquisite pairing for this versatile vintage.
Complement the fresh finish in this wine with a dessert bursting with red berries or dark chocolate.
