First known under the name Cheval Noir in 1895, this property is one of the oldest in Saint Emilion.
Château Cheval Noir was purchased in 1937 by the Mähler-Besse family. This was their first vineyard acquisition. Located in close proximity to the most famous estates in Saint-Émilion, Château Cheval Noir produces outstanding wine.
Hubert de Boüard (well-known oenologist and co-owner of Château Angélus, a Premier Grand Cru Classé A and neighbour of Cheval Noir) has
shared his expertise to make Cheval Noir for the past several years.
The Château Cheval Noir vineyard consists predominantly of Merlot vines planted over 50 years ago on siliceous soil overlaying ironpan. This 5-hectare estate's superb terroir, bordering on Angélus, produces elegant, well-balanced wines.
The soil is ploughed several times a year and great care is taken to respect the environment at all times.The vines are pruned using the Guyot-Double method. The château team pays special attention to pruning and green pruning. The leaves are thinned by hand on the east-facing side and bunch thinning is practised as necessary to provide good aeration for the clusters.
The grapes are hand-picked into small 25 kg crates after sorting in the vineyard. The wine is fermented in small temperature-controlled vats after cold pre-fermentation maceration at 5°C for 7 days. Pumping over and pigeage (punching down the cap) alternate during fermentation.
The temperature never goes above 28°C in order not to lose any of the aromatic finesse. The wine is aged in 60% new oak barrels (100% French oak with light-to-average toast) for 12-16 months.
