The story of LE PETIT CHEVAL BLANC began in 2006, when Château Cheval Blanc acquired Château La Tour du Pin. The two estates are separated only by a small road leading from Saint Emilion to Pomerol. Planted with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this estate was producing red wine entitled to the Saint-Émilion Grand Cru appellation. The vineyard rapidly underwent a profound restructuring, and it appeared that 6,6 hectares had a very interesting profile for white wines. Becoming aware of this fine potential was the start of everything...

Tasting Notes

"The first nose is discreet, dominated by citrus fruits. By airing it, floral notes take over (lime blossom, lilac, white flowers). The “new-born” Semillon in the blend opens up a new aromatic register, made up of white-fleshed fruits, and a delicate note of acacia honey and beeswax. The wood, remarkably discreet, brings a mineral and smoky touch. The fresh and precise attack continues in the mid-palate with impressive amplitude and volume. The balance between fat and acidity brings great depth in the mouth, and the long finish is slightly enhanced by a nice bitterness."
