Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

For more than 10 years, Château Cheval Blanc has challenged itself to produce a great white wine on this small 6.6 hectares vineyard nested in the parcels of its elder. A genuine variation, in white, of the identity of Cheval Blanc, this wine is a blend of some 12 different plots, on sandy and clay soils, where 80% sauvignon blanc and 20% sémillon fit perfectly.

2020 vintage
The first trimester saw above-normal temperatures, which led to the earliest budburst this young vineyard has ever seen, on March 19th for the Semillon and March 21st for the Sauvignon. Flowering and veraison were extremely rapid (1 week for flowering and 8 days for veraison) and very homogeneous. Water stress appeared in mid-July, remaining moderate until the harvest. The harvest, which was very early, took place from August 19th to 24th, with good health grapes

Tasting note
A particularly successful vintage for Le Petit Cheval blanc, with bergamot, citrus,
slightly grapefruit, fruity touches of pear, white flesh fruit. Freshness and a
mineral note that probably comes from the ageing in large vessels. The nose is
bright, fresh, precise and clean.
The palate is vibrant, with a beautiful attack, freshness, tension, a relatively strong acidity, salinity and nice bitters that lengthen the mouth, and which compose with a beautiful volume, wide, creamy. A very nice balance for a wine that is already accessible, from its youngest age.

Blend :

• 82% - Sauvignon blanc

• 18% - Sémillon
