Château L’Évêché, AOC Saint Émilion Grand Cru

Millésime 2015

92-93/100

James Suckling

« Lots of freshness and density with velvety tannins and blue fruits. Cool and spicy. Fascinating blend of 80% merlot, 15% cabernet franc, 2% cabernet sauvignon, 1% malbec, 15 carmenère, and 1% petit verdot »

90-92/100

PARKER & Neil Martin (Wine Advocate)

« The 2015 Château L’Évéché is a blend of 75% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc plus a seasoning of other varieties, aged in new oak, foudres and used barrels. It has a lifted blackberry and raspberry-scented bouquet with fine definition, broody, more introspective than I expected, the gravel soils imparting a Left Bank trait. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin. This is a structured Saint Émilion with fine salinity towards the finish, one that deserves 3-4 years in bottle, but I suspect will be worth the wait. »

« Black! Concentrated fruit with a hint of tar and much opulence. Sweet start – so much sweet fruit that the sandy tannins emerge only at the very end. But there is freshness here too. This works! »

« New owners since 2008 ; on gravely land. Old vines and they are planting all the varieties allowed in the appellation including Petit Verdot, Malbec and Carmenère. Savoury and rather wild and interesting. A wine to look out for. No excess oak! Tastes rather biodynamic. Really lively undertow »

Château La Chapelle Lescours, AOC Saint Émilion Grand Cru

Millésime 2015

93-94/100

James Suckling

« This is very minerally and salty with lots of dried fruit and wet mushroom character. Full and structured. Small production from 3 hectares. Mostly merlot. Look out for it. »

Jancis Robinson

« 87% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Petit Verdot. 2 ha on sand and gravel. The second wine and sister property to heavily accented L’Évêché. Dark blackish ruby. Mild-mannered on the nose with sufficient freshness. Very dark purple. Sweet palate entry with some rather grainy tannins on the end. Only just enough freshness for the sweetness. Needs quite a bit of time. »

89-91/100

PARKER & Neil Martin (Wine Advocate)

« The 2015 Chapelle-Lescours is based on 80% Merlot and aged in 33% new oak, in foudres rather than barrels. It offers dark berry fruit mixed with cola on the nose that takes a bit of coaxing from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, crisp blackberry and boysenberry fruit, cedar and graphite with a precise, almost Pauillac like finish. What’s not to like here ? »

e-robertParker.com / Wine Advocate

« The Château Chapelle Lescours 2014 is located on the same gravel as Monbousquet, Angélus etc. and consists of about 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec and 2% Carmenère (the minority grape varieties co-planted) It has a pretty, well-defined bouquet with blackberry and raspberry fruit, rose petals developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline entry, light sappy black fruit with a clean and precise, focused finish. Enjoy this Saint Émilion Grand Cru ! »
