La Chapelle-Lescours 2011 - Château l’Evêché, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Château l’Evêché is ruled by skilled people ! Indeed, we already chose for My VitiBox their Bordeaux Supérieur and their first Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. There is their second Grand Cru that impressed us. Tannins are fine, the aromatic structure is very elegant and we get magnificent scents of ripen black berries, typical from high class merlots. On the palate, you will also find fine tastes of liquorice and hints of chocolate. 

 

Terroir

The vines used to elaborate La Chapelle-Lescours are planted on a soil made of fine clay and large heavy round pebbles called graves. This kind of soil perfectly regulates the water supply to make sure vine stocks get all the nutrients they need but are not flooded which could result in diluted wines.

lecepage Grape variety

Merlot is the most widespread variety in Saint-Emilion and cabernet franc the noblest (it’s the only variety in Château Cheval Blanc). This nice blend gives the best both varieties have to offer : merlot expresses its delightful aromas of ripe fruits like plum and cabernet franc brings fine tannins and warm spices’ flavours like liquorice.

lemillesime Vintage

2011 was a rough vintage in Bordeaux. Winter and spring were dry, too dry ! Blossoming happened three weeks earlier than usual. The month of July required all winegrowers’ attention to make sure that the grapes would not lose too much water. The good thing is that it concentrated a lot the grapes. Luckily, August was quite fresh and a bit rainy : the best winemakers harvested beautiful grapes and by doing the right things during the winemaking process, a lot of great wines could be produced. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Eight centuries old, Château l’Evêché really took off in 2008 when it was purchased by Jean-Sébastien Capdevielle. This former foie gras producer wanted to take a new challenge and spent four years looking for a terroir that inspired him. He eventually found Château l’Evêché where he did a huge work with his team to produce a few years later great wines considered to be rising stars in Saint-Emilion.
