Origami 2012 - Château l’Evêché, Bordeaux

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

In this month of April, I am proud to present you Origami by Chateau l’Evêché. This wine is a perfect example of the best you can find on the right bank of Bordeaux ! Its main characteristic is an amazing smoothness that will enchant your buds. Moreover, this wine is amazingly balanced and blackberries aromas pair perfectly with vanilla flavours brought by a delicate maturation in oak barrels. 

 

Terroir

Château l’Evêché, a rising star of Saint-Emilion, also owns 6 hectares just on the other side of the Dordogne River. Merlot and cabernet franc, the only variety used in Château Cheval Blanc, are cultivated with as much care as for the Grand Cru. The only difference is that this side of the river is sunnier and wines are therefore a little sweeter. Yummy!

lecepage Grape variety

This wine is mainly elaborated with merlot as are most wines from Bordeaux’s right bank. Merlot gives flattering fruity wines but needs a lot of care and attention to gain complexity. Indeed, merlot is a fertile variety which gives high quantity of low quality wines when it’s let entirely free. Like other right bank good winemakers, Chateau l’Evêché masters the art of stressing merlot so it gives powerful and refined wines.

lemillesime Vintage

In Bordeaux, each vintage is quite different from the previous one. In 2011, the summer happened in spring and the spring in summer, which was far from being the case in 2012 ! A cold spring delayed the blossoming of the grapes and led to a disparity of ripeness between the grapes when the time of the harvest came. This phenomenon only spares estates that carefully select the best grapes to elaborate their wines, which is obviously the case of Châteaux l’Evêché. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

The history of Château l’Evêché starts several centuries ago when the bishop of the area asked peasants to plant vines around the chapel of Lescours. Château l’Evêché was born. It was then awaken in 2008 after a long hibernation when Jean Sébastien Capdevielle and Anthony Ginter got in charge of the 6 hectares located in Nerigean.
