Blason de L’Evangile 2019, A.C. Pomerol
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.

Opulent and alluring. This Pomerol is very 2019 stylistically with it’s suave, juicy and generously textured fruit. It doesn’t feel like a second wine, there’s nothing thin about this wine. It feels luscious and dense yet approachable and open for business now. The nose kicks off with layers of black cherry, charred vanilla, cocoa, tobacco, spicy oak and blueberry coulis. The tannins feel ripe and there’s an exotic element to the wine with fairly low acidity and super juicy fruit. A polished finish hints a cloves and cassis with touches of dark chocolate. Great stuff from DBR Lafite.

Chateau Duhart-Milon 2005, Grand Cru Classe Pauillac£155.00 Buy One of the finest vintages of Duhart-Milon ever produced and drinking exceptionally well. The 2005 has power and intensity that are revealed from behind curtains of elegance. The nose displays a bouquet of truffle, black olive, dark fruit, tobacco and redcurrant. Moving away from the nose and onto the palate, expect velvety tannins and crisp acidity keeping it lively. Towards the end of the palate expect hints of spice and graphite minerality.
Chateau L’Evangile 2010, A.C. Pomerol£375.00 Buy Inky black in colour once poured into the glass. Morello cherries, vanilla, raspberry, blueberry and mocha lead the aromatic notes. The rich concentration of the juice on the palate is typical from the vintage but Lafite have managed to keep it under control despite the high ABV. This just lasts forever on the palate, one of the Chateau's finest vintages on record.
