Nose

Intense nose revealing stone fruit aromas with light vanilla and roasted notes.

Palate

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.

Growing Conditions

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.

Harvest

This first year with organic certification yielded grapes of extraordinary quality, the best we have seen in the last 20 years.

Aging

18 months, in 70% new barrels.

Appearance

Dark, dense colour with beautiful glints of violet.
