Situated in Saint Emilion (on the border of Pomerol) sits Château Cheval Blanc, one of the most famous châteaux in Bordeaux producing some of the best wines in the world, under the watchful eye of winemaker Pierre Lurton. (Who also is winemaker at Château d’Yquem). The cellar at Château Cheval Blanc is designed by French architect and urbanist Christian de Portzamparc and was installed in 2001. The stunning, state-of-the-art cellar has won a number of architecture and design awards. It is in-keeping with Château Cheval Blanc’s image, with a timeless design that is pure and simple and sits perfectly alongside the historic château. Although ultra-modern and almost entirely white inside, it also lets in natural light that bounces off the vast white, Italian built, concrete vats. The vineyards at Château Cheval Blanc are planted with 39% Merlot, 57% Cabernet Franc, Malbec 3% and Cabernet Sauvignon 1%. The estate's second wine is Le Petit Cheval.
