Present in Saint-Emilion since the early 20th century after their purchase of the Cheval Noir estate, a historic family property renowned for producing quality wines since 1895. Mahler-Besse increased their vineyard holdings in this appellation when they bought Chateau La Couronne in 1992. Mahler-Besse had made all the necessary investments to produce a great wine: new cellars and truncated-cone-shaped vats unique in the appellation. The name Cheval Noir derives from an elegant and powerful black "work" horse back in the 19th century that was the predecessor of today's sustainable vineyards.
