Château Cheval Blanc is owned by Bernard Arnault and Baron Albert Frère. They commissioned the architect to realize a new winery. After extensive discussions with Pierre Lurton and the winemaker, Christian de Portzamparc decided to base the design on concrete vats, much appreciated at Cheval Blanc for winemaking.
Inspired by the landscape, he wanted to create a winery that would open up the view onto the beauty of this environment shaped by man. The winery seems to float on a hill in the heart of these centuries-old vineyards. A promontory extending from the château, emerging from the earth, it raises its concrete sails towards the sky.
