Our oenologists' opinion
Dark garnet colour with bright red reflections, limpid and brilliant. Open nose with hints of cherry jam, black pepper and eucalyptus, rich and elegant, with a hint of vanilla and melted wood. Supple and vinous attack, tension, full, good balance, mineral touch, character on red fruits in brandy, tannins to be magnified. Sapid finish, beautiful length on cherry and cocoa, elegant and racy.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?

Domain and appellation
Coming from clay-limestone, siliceous and gravelly soils, the Saint-Emilion terroir, combined with the mthod of cultivation, produces fine, fruity and regular wines from one year to the next.
Since 2010, Hubert de Boüard, oenologist and co-owner of Château Angélus, Cheval Noir's neighbour, has been involved in the production of Cheval Noir Saint-Émilion wines, contributing his expertise and know-how. Once selected, the different batches are blended and matured with the aim of preserving fruit, balance and roundness. The quality of the producer partners, the mastery of the selection of the tasting committee and the maturing process ensure a consistent quality over the years while respecting the typicality of the terroir and the expectations of consumers.
