Château Cheval Blanc
Jean Laussac-Fourcaud founded Château Cheval Blanc in 1832. The late 19th century brought the château its first success as European capitals developed a passion for this wine, with its flavours of voyage.
Vines have been grown at the place named Cheval Blanc for centuries and vineyards of Saint-Emilion have produced wines of outstanding quality year after year, decade after decade, since late antiquity. They are some of the most acclaimed in the world; and the mythical Château Cheval Blanc is at their forefront.
Poetically referred to as “the hill with a thousand châteaux”, Saint-Emilion has a colourful history. Skilled and enthusiastic winegrowers have long contributed to its stellar reputation.
In the autumn of 1998, Bernard Arnault and Baron Albert Frère, two old friends and lovers of great wine, joined forces to became the owners of this fabled château in Saint-Emilion. They injected a dynamic new spirit, while respecting the château’s history and existing facilities. They also placed their complete trust in the winemaking team to continue their good work. The priority today is the ultimate in quality, which calls for enormous attention to detail and precision winemaking.
Château Cheval Blanc is part of the LVMH group which is taking various steps to protect people and the planet. The buildings are certified to the demanding high quality environment standard, designed to optimise water and energy management, control hygrometry and provide ideal acoustic, visual and olfactory comfort, ensuring the well-being of all who work there.
The estate takes environmental protection seriously. Chemical herbicides have never been used at Cheval Blanc, and grape growing is done sustainably using integrated farming methods.
