Blason de L’Evangile 2016, A.C. Pomerol

£55.00

Chateau L’Evangile, situated in the appellation of Pomerol, dates back as far as 1741 and was acquired by DBR Lafite in 1989 – making L’Evangile the one and only property Lafite have on the ‘right bank’ of Bordeaux. The vineyard is planted with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and produces richly textured, complex and ripe Merlot based clarets. The Grand Vin, Chateau L’Evangile, requires substantial cellaring prior to optimum drinking. The second cuvee, Blason de L’Evangile, is accessible in it’s youth – both are wonderful examples of what this prestigious vineyard can achieve.

Tasting notes

A really sexy and approachable nose; blueberry coulis, blackberry, toast, vanilla, dark chocolate and sweet plum sauce. This is a modern style of Pomerol – ripe yet structured and well balanced. The palate feels open for business already, with layers of ripe silky fruit and lashings of sweet spicy oak. Despite how approachable it is, a year in the cellar will do it the world of good.
