Château L'Évangile

Southeast of the Pomerol plateau stands the famous Château L'Évangile, sitting on a long stretch of gravel, a geological situation Rare and unusual for the appellation. Its history dates back to the 18th century, when it was run by the Léglise family.

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.

Description Château L'Évangile 2020.

With its dazzling garnet-red color, this wine reveals a warm nose with an intense, complex bouquet. Chocolate and roasting notes appear at first, then, after aeration, it's possible to distinguish pretty black fruits as well as a floral hint. The palate is powerful, with a fine tannic structure. The wine is perfectly balanced between generosity and liveliness. Soft to the touch thanks to the satiny tannins, it will need a few more years to fully unfold.
