With its Cheval Noir estate located in Saint-Emilion since the beginning of the century, Mähler-Besse strengthened its operation under the same name, through the acquisition in 1992 of Château La Couronne.

Mähler-Bess equipped itself with the essential requirements for the production of great wines: new cellar, equipped with a unique truncated cone under the same name.
Technically perfect, this wine, made from fruit, resulting from limited production and long-lasting macerations is seductive. Its oak-coloured elegance, its finesse and its delicacy make it an immediately pleasurable wine.
