Dense and juicy fruit, this wine is round and harmonious with a warm finish. Aromas of violets with dark berries (Morello cherries, blackcurrants) and fresh notes of mocha and toast. On the palate, very refined and silky, with a powerful, balanced tannic structure. The texture is dense and very velvety thanks to the ripe, well-coated tannins. The finish is long with fruity notes.
This vintage is composed of 93% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc.
Founded by the Léglise family from Libourne, the property was to become Château L’Évangile. The Leglise family were actively involved, around the middle of the 18th century, in the creation of Pomerol’s vineyards. L’Évangile appeared in the 1741 land registry under the name of Fazilleau.
At the beginning of the 19th Century, the estate was very close to its current configuration of about 13 hectares of vineyards when it was sold to a lawyer named Isambert, who renamed the estate L'Evangile. In 1862, it was sold again to Paul Chaperon, whose descendants, the Ducasse family owned it until 1990. In 1990, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) acquired L’Évangile from the Ducasse family with the goal being to develop the property to the same high standard as Lafite. Lafite’s initial influence included a more refined selection for the Grand Vin, plus the creation of Blason de L’Évangile, as a second wine. Efforts also included vineyard improvements. The property's new configuration also included a complete renovation of the vat room and the cellar, which was finished in 2004.
