A fantastic Grand Cru from Chateau Cheval Brun from the Saint Émilion, Bordeaux, France. The Grand Cru is produced from the best and oldest vines of the domain. After a thorough manual selection, only the most beautiful and ripest grapes are used for production.
This Grand Cru of Chateau Cheval Brun is complex, powerful and full-bodied. Bursting with flavors of ripe dark fruits such as blackberry and cassis, supported by smooth tannins, and finished with a nice oaky support and a long aftertaste.
The wine is already very nicely balanced and will only develop more in the coming years. Highly recommended for a special moment or to keep in your cellar!
