Chateau Cheval Blanc 1er Grand Cru classe' A 1988
Cheval Blanc is one of Bordeaux's most desirable wines, with a rich and illustrious history protected and currently being built upon by Pierre Lurton, one of Bordeaux's most talented winemakers. Under the current owners and rigorous stewardship of Lurton, Cheval's 30+ year old vines are treated naturally, including no herbicides and natural fertiliser. Green harvesting and rigorous selection ensure that only the finest fruit reaches the cellar where the produce from each vineyard plot is vinified separately to preserve the character of each terroir.
Such attention to detail means that this luxury label doesn't come cheap, but with Cheval you are not paying for a label but the quality behind it.
