Blason de L’Evangile 2017, A.C. Pomerol

£65.00

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

2017 witnessed very low yields for much of Bordeaux. Many of the wines, Blason de L’Evangile included, show good concentration and intensity. This 2017 Blason de L’Evangile offers a nose of toast, vanilla and deep black fruit with cocoa and blueberry. On the palate the wine has great intensity with dense, silky, ripe tannins. The finish is long and powerful.
