Winemakers Note

Château L'Evangile, a natural balancing act L'Évangile's Grand Vin is a true balancing act: powerful but well-rounded, sharp but soft. It is a reflection of its environment - on the right bank, in the heart of the vines: a house made of Bordeaux stone, planted in legendary gravel and clay soils, a place where ideas and experiences abound. L'Évangile is a house where bees and horses, wine growers and farmers, cross paths. A house where, barely after stepping through the red wooden doors, you find yourself in the vines where Saskia and her team watch over and care for their Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Today, everything has been replanted and is learning to adapt to the rhythm of organic farming. 2021 - Decisions, Decisions This year more than ever, it was crucial to make the right decisions at the right time. At every step of the growing season, Nature challenged the teams of each estate and all the required decisions to overcome theses challenges were made collectively. Whether it was to overcome the frost, the capricious spring or to decide the harvest dates, each of these decisions shaped the profile of the wines of Domaines Barons de Rothschild in 2021: a vintage in which it was definitively impossible to cheat. To be noted: 2021 is the first vintage to be certified Organic Farming for Château l'Evangile. 2021 L'Evangile, To the Heart of the Matter The video of the vintage: https://bit.ly/Evangile2021 “When we don’t get down to what’s essential, it’s because we are not clear on what it is” says an Italian proverb. We like this pragmatism, which nicely defines L’Évangile 2021, which appeared to us very clearly as soon as the wine was run off. The grapes told us where we should go and it was to the heart of the matter. In a year like this with an Atlantic climate, our plots with the precocious gravel-clay terroirs were our best allies in the search for balance, and the aromatic freshness we were looking for appeared, especially thanks to our Cabernet Francs, present in the blend at a record percentage! We are not going to deny that 2021 will also be an “essential” vintage in terms of quantity, despite the valiant fight of our team. This first officially certified organic vintage has enabled us to make progress in learning and better arm ourselves to react in the future.
