Château Cheval Blanc Retrospective & Dinner

An Evening with Robert M. Parker, Jr. and Château Cheval Blanc’s Pierre Lurton

You are invited to attend an intimate dinner commencing at 7 p.m. on Friday evening, 4th November 2016 in Napa Valley with Robert M. Parker, Jr. - the world's greatest authority on Bordeaux - and the Director of Château Cheval Blanc, Pierre Lurton.

The event will feature nine spectacular vintages of Château Cheval Blanc, all coming directly from the Château. The line-up includes two perfect, 100-point wines, the 2010 and the 2005 vintage, of which Parker said, “Full-bodied, but extremely light on its feet, I don’t mean to gush, but it is super-intense, rich and just so meticulously crafted! This is another fabulous wine and a perfect expression for this vintage.” Mature vintages will include the 1982, 1975 and 1959. This private dinner will take place at chef Ken Frank’s luxurious restaurant La Toque, and includes a Champagne reception with hors d'oeuvres and a sumptuous five-course menu specially paired to showcase the Château Cheval Blanc wines.

At a maximum capacity of only twenty-eight places for this dinner, seats for this once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the greatness of Château Cheval Blanc with Robert M. Parker, Jr. and Pierre Lurton are extremely limited. Please book at your earliest convenience to avoid disappointment.
