Chateau Cheval Blanc is almost certainly the best majority cabenet franc wine in the world. It is also our, and quite a number of other people’s, favourite claret.
The 1947 vintage is recognized as one of the very best wines ever made and the 1981 vintage (one of our favourites) resullted in the owner of the estate setting his dog on a certain American wine reviewer. The reviews have improved since that date.
For the record, the grand vin is usually around 57% Cabernet Franc, 39% Merlot, 3% Malbec, and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the estate also produces a white wine called Le Petit Cheval Blanc and owns a nice spot in the Argentine Andes where they produce something called Cheval Des Andes.
