Chateau L'Evangile 2018

Product description

It is impossible not to mention the mildew problem, when we had been working so hard to build a viticulture without residues and with high environmental responsibility. Thanks to extremely meticulous work, their team was able to restore ideal conditions in the vineyard before ripening. The effect of the heat was even stronger here than on the other bank, with ripening blocked for some young vines at the end of summer. They were saved by the 25 mm of rain on 7 September. Their greatest pride in 2018, even if their heart is still beating for Merlot. The excellent quality of their Cabernet Franc.

Blend: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc

98 Points - James Suckling

So attractive on the nose with blackberry, black olive and a hint of brown sugar. It’s full-bodied with layers of ripe tannins that flow across the palate. Rich, intense and flavourful finish with flavours similar to the aromas. Fleshy and toned at the end. From organically grown grapes. Try after 2025.
