Château L'Évangile

It was finally christened L'Evangile in the 19th century. It wasn't until 1990 that it came under the Domaines Baron de Rothschild banner, managing Château Lafite Rothschild to Pauillac. New restructurings were then undertaken, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, having since given birth to a remarkable series of vintages.

The Château L'Évangile is based on a 22-hectare vineyard planted on sandy-clay soils containing pure gravel, resting on a subsoil of iron crasse conferring a sumptuous minerality to the wines. The grape varieties are 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet franc. The wines are aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 70% of which are new. 

The estate produces a Second wine, Blason de L'Evangile, crafted with equal care and precision. 

The Château L'Évangile embodies the very best of Pomerol, producing wines that combine power and finesse. They offer beautiful aromatic brilliance, great depth and elegance.
