First known under the name Cheval Noir in 1895, this property is one of the oldest in Saint Emilion.
Château Cheval Noir was purchased in 1937 by the Mähler-Besse family. This was their first vineyard acquisition. Located in close proximity to the most famous estates in Saint-Émilion, Château Cheval Noir produces outstanding wine. Hubert de Boüard (well-known oenologist and co-owner of Château Angélus, a Premier Grand Cru Classé and neighbour of Cheval Noir) has shared his expertise to make Cheval Noir for the past several years.
