Blason de L’Evangile 2008, A.C. Pomerol


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 produced wonderfully supple wines with layers of rich red fruit.

Tasting notes

Blason de L’Evangile 2008 possesses a deep ruby with a faint garnet rim. The nose, after a few hours in a decanter, boasts cocoa dusted cherry, tobacco, sweet plum, and vanilla. The palate has a nice trace of tannin with perfectly weighted acidity which helps to underpin the suave red cherry fruit. The finish is slightly spicy and led primarily by notes of toasted vanilla and cherry fruit. The 2008 vintage of Blason de L’Evangile was produced solely using Merlot – as the Cabernet Franc struggled to reach optimum ripeness. Decant and enjoy with roast beef.
