Cheval Quancard is a large wine producer and négociant based in Bordeaux. The company was founded in 1844 by Pierre Quancard and today offers an extensive portfolio of Bordeaux wines from appellations around the region, including Saint-Émilion and the Médoc.
In the 100 years following its foundation, the company grew and developed significantly under the management of successive generations of the Quancard family. Marcel Quancard took control in the early 1930s and was responsible for creating the company’s iconic horse trademark in the late 1960s.
In 1985 the company was rebranded, changing its name from Fils de Marcel Quancard to Cheval Quancard. In 1998, the production facilities were moved to a new site in Carbon-Blanc in the Gironde, just northeast of Bordeaux city.
A subtle, delicate Entre-Deux-Mers with a complex nose intermingling grapefruit, white peach, blackcurrant and toast. Full-bodied and lively on the palate with a background of pleasant woody and floral aromas.
