Blason de L’Evangile 2012, A.C. Pomerol

£59.95

Blason de L’Evangile is produced using fruit from the younger vines at Chateau L’Evangile, in the appellation of Pomerol. The blend is always Merlot rich with a small percentage of Cabernet Franc. Blason shares many of the same characteristics as its counterpart – although tends to reach optimum maturity earlier, and won’t hold for quite as long. Blessed with unique soils, the vineyards of L’Evangile produces wonderfully supple wines with layers of rich red fruit.

Tasting notes

Blason de L’Evangile 2012 possesses a purple edged ruby colour. The nose, which is closed down straight from the bottles, requires a few hours in a decanter to blossom. Think cocoa, toast, iron filings, tobacco, cassis, and vanilla spiced plums. The palate has a firm backbone of tannin with perfectly weighted acidity which helps to underpin the suave red cherry fruit. This is a fairly intense vintage of Blason that requires a dish rich in protein, however the fruit is fairly primary and will certainly benefit from a year in the cellar. Decant and enjoy with roast beef.
