Blason de L’Evangile 2014, six bottle case
Blason de L’Evangile is produced using fruit from the younger vines at Chateau L’Evangile, in the appellation of Pomerol. The blend is 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 cellar for quite as long. Blessed with unique soils, the vineyards of L’Evangile produces wonderfully supple wines with layers of rich red fruit

Classique 2016, six bottle case
£119.70More info & buy This is Classique at it's best, after 16 months in French oak and a few years in the bottle this vintage is singing! A complex and smoky nose starts off with roasted coffee, cassis, black cherry and earthy spice. The palate is medium to full bodied with seamless tannins and just enough acidity to retain freshness. There's ripeness and richness on the palate, but it's not overworked or overripe, it's balanced and very well made. The wines of Rupert and Rothschild seem to get better with every passing vintage, and Classique 2016 certainly supports that theory.
