The Mähler-Besse family knows the terroir in Saint Emilion extremely well and has worked closely with the best partners there to produce great wines. Present in Saint Emilion since 1937 with the acquisition of Château Cheval Noir, Mähler-Besse consolidated their position in this appellation with the purchase of Château La Couronne in 1992. Cheval Noir Saint Emilion is a blend made from a meticulous selection of lots from our estates and partner winegrowers.
The grapes come from clay-limestone and siliceous-gravel plots in Saint Emilion that produce elegant, fruity wines year in and year out. Contributing his considerable experience and know-how, Hubert de Boüard – oenologist and co-owner of Cheval Noir’s neighbour, Château Angélus – has been a consultant for the making of Cheval Noir Saint Emilion since 2010,

The lots of wine are carefully chosen, blended, and aged in order to display roundness, balance, and intrinsic fruitiness. The quality of wines from our partners, meticulous selection by our tasting committee, and expert ageing result in wines that reflect their terroir and are delicious in every vintage.
