(04-2008) Relatively pale with a light rim. More attenuated than the Eglise Clinet. No great concentration and already quite evolved on the nose. The opposite of a blockbuster but with finesse. Quite evolved with the fruit in retreat but very harmonious already. This would make a lovely bottle for current drinking. Neat finish with medum persistence. Not as rich or sweet as the Église Clinet.

Deep garnet-brick colored and blended of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, the nose of the 1998 L'Evangile has the most intensely perfumed scents of potpourri, fallen leaves, Chinese five spice, camphor and new leather over a core of crème de cassis, prunes, star anise, dusty soil and tobacco with wafts of dried lavender and cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied, rich and decadent in the mouth, it has layer upon layer of spice and savory notions with a plush frame and refreshing lift on the finish.

The great wine of Chateau The Gospel is described in an old edition of "Great Wines of Bordeaux" (published Dussaut) such as "... full of wine, elegant with a bouquet and finesse incomparable". For many fans, the quality and subtle elegance is indeed the mark of this wine. Grapes partners in wine: 80-90% Merlot, 10-20% Cabernet Franc. Duration of aging in oak barrels: 18 months 70% new oak. Average annual production: 2 000-3 000 cases per year. . After a winter cold and wet, high temperatures in March and in April has encouraged the start of vegetation. Then, a long gray period, temperate, not excessive, lasted until August, requiring increased technical supervision. The weather has stabilized in early September and eventually promote peace and good ripening grapes. This vintage is characterized by one year to 13 moons and a longer growing season than normal. . Nose discrete. The palate is very round, attack wide, generous environment. End with a solid texture. Boise melted very. .
