Lot presentation

Château l' Évangile 2019

The wine

Today, the new team harvests the grapes as late as possible, in order to obtain perfectly ripe grapes, with limited yields and ageing for 18 months in oak barrels that are 70% renewed each year. The ambition to raise l'Evangile to the appellation's front ranks seems to have been achieved: the wines have a superb richness, with a dark ruby colour and aromas of raspberries, blackberries, and sometimes liquorice; they also have an impressive capacity to age.

About the Producer Château l'Évangile

Although there has never been any classification for Pomerol wines, Château L'Evangile is undoubtedly among the best wines of the appellation. The domain was created in the middle of the 18th century, by the Léglise family from Libourne, who contributed to the quality of the Pomerol vineyard, alongside the owners of Petrus (Arnaud family), La Conseillante (Catherine Conseillant) and Trotanoy (Giraud family). This vineyard enjoys an exceptional situation within Pomerol between Petrus and Cheval Blanc. Previously called Fazilleau, the domain was named l’Evangile at the beginning of the 19th century, under the guidance of the lawyer Isambert, who was owner until 1862. Paul Chaperon bought the Chateau L'Evangile that remained under the supervision of his descendants, the Ducasse family, until 1990. Since then, l’Evangile has been purchased by the Barons de Rothschild (Lafite). Under the impulse of Jean-Pascal Vazart, new care has been given to the vineyard, new plots were purchased and the wines are more successful each year.
