The new winery of Chateau Cheval Blanc


What an amazing example of blending modern architecture with a 18th century chateau and spotless vineyards!

In the French region of Bordeaux, famous throughout the world for its wines, rises the new winery of Château Cheval Blanc, designed by architect Christian de Portzamparc (Pritzker Prize ’94).

Inaugurated in 2011, this „wine atelier” is like a bridge between ancient and modern: an enormous sail in white concrete looking over the vineyards of Saint Emilion. Empty spaces alternating with glass and wooden blocks on a surface of over 6600 square yards.

A structure developed on two levels: the ground floor with 52 vats in raw cement for the fermentation of wine and a tasting room, and the underground aging cellar, which is kept at low temperatures.

A low, sinuous cloud, that rises like an artificial hill and sensually dialogues with the surrounding vineyards and adjacent 18th century building.

The mashrabiya walls facilitate natural ventilation, illumination is sober, with no intent to display or decorate. With HQE certification, each element has been studied so as to limit the consumption of energy, thanks to the presence of a green terrace and a filtering mechanism to reuse rainfall. At Château Cheval Blanc the art of wine making is preserved also in aesthetic and with respect towards the environment and the future.

    Sper ca nu te apuci sa-l concurezi pe cineva la preluare de comunicate de presa, descrieri de contraetichete, etc

      No worries :)! Un „copy-paster” serios nu da link-ul articolului original chiar in varful postarii… Dupa cum ii scriam si lui Bogdan mai jos, ma joc cu niste articole in engleza, sa vad daca creste ratingu’ au ba…. Pana acum vad ca tot cititorii din Romania sunt cei mai seriosi!

    Puteai face efortul sa traduci textul in romana🙂

      Asa e🙂 Pe de alta parte, fac un mic experiment cu articole scrise/preluate in engleza, sa vad cat de receptivi ar fi actualii/virtualii cititori la o diversificare, asa ca acest post face parte dintr-un plan🙂 Oricum, imaginile sunt importante, sunt convins ca sunt vizitatori (nu tu, evident) care nici nu ajung la finalul textului.
