BLEND & ORIGIN WINES

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Château Cheval Blanc 2010

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.
