A great Pomerol wine from the Barons de Rothschild Lafite estates

The estate

Established gradually by the Leglise family from Libourne around the middle of the 18th century, Chateau L’Evangile quickly earned the reputation of a "First Growth of Haut-Pomerol". After having been owned by the Ducasse family, it was in 1990 that the Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite bought the estate and invested into making the estate one of the appellation’s best. From the vineyard to the cellar, Chateau L’Evangile has undergone major restructuring and modernizations that have made the property shine bright among the finest references in the Pomerol appellation.

The vineyard

Reigning over a 22-hectare vineyard, Chateau L’Evangile enjoys a privileged location, bordered by Petrus to the north and Chateau Cheval Blanc to the south. The vineyard is planted in sandy clay soil with pure gravel, resting upon a subsoil made of the appellation’s famous iron ore (crasse de fer).

The vintage

Although the Chateau L’Evangile vineyard sometimes lacked water, the teams at the chateau harvested perfectly ripe grapes between 2 and 21 September. The fruit offered a very nice shine and the richness in the aromas of the young Merlots was very noticeable. The Cabernet Francs were also cared for by the estate’s teams, something which can be felt in their simultaneously fresh and very aromatic profile.

Blend

Merlot (88%) and Cabernet Franc (12%).
