Tasting Note: Dark, dense colour with beautiful glints of violet. Intense nose revealing stone fruit aromas with light vanilla and roasted notes. Full-bodied and generous on the palate culminating in a silky, smooth finish thanks to the sublime quality of the tannins in this 2018 vintage.
Grape Variety: 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc
2018 was a special year at Château L’Evangile, as it was the first vintage to be produced with organic certification. However, the weather conditions proved to be challenging. The ten-day flowering period was particularly nerve-racking, with seven consecutive days of rain. As a result of the heavy rainfall, mildew attacked the flowers, destroying a substantial proportion of the potential harvest. Fortunately, from mid-July onwards, the weather improved, providing excellent ripening conditions until the harvests. This first year with organic certification yielded grapes of extraordinary quality, the best we have seen in the last 20 years.
