    2013 Château Cheval Blanc, Saint-Emiliion

    The 2013 vintage presented many challenges to winemakers. Grapes suffered from coulure (the dropping of improperly fertilised flowers) and millerandage (irregular development of grapes), and yields were low. Precision was therefore required in the cellar – winemakers determined that this vintage, a blend of 49% merlot, 48% cabernet franc and 3% cabernet sauvignon, would benefit from 15 months’ ageing in new oak to impart density and focus. 


Food pairing:
A versatile companion 

Starter

The creaminess of a cheese soufflé will complement this wine’s silky texture.

Main

For this fresh vintage, a “meaty” fish such as sea bass, monkfish or turbot will work well. Or, for a classic match, serve prime cuts of beef, such as rib or fillet.

Dessert

A dessert using pear or apple – or even red berries – will complement the 2013’s fruity aromas.
