Established gradually by the Léglise family from Libourne around the middle of the 18th century, Château L’Évangile quickly earned the reputation of a "First Growth of Haut-Pomerol". After having been owned by the Ducasse family, it was in 1990 that the Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite acquired the estate and invested into making the estate one of the appellation’s best. From the vineyard to the cellar, Château L’Évangile has undergone major restructuring and modernisations that have made the property shine bright among the finest references in the Pomerol appellation.
Château L'Évangile 2021 is a Pomerol wine made from a 22-hectare vineyard that is poised in a privileged location between Château Pétrus to the north and Château Cheval Blanc to the south. The vineyard is planted on sandy-clay soils with pure gravel, resting on a subsoil made up of the appellation’s famous iron ore.
Marked by an episode of frost during spring followed by unstable weather conditions, 2021 is the first vintage of the estate to be officially certified as organic.
Cabernet Franc (30%)
Cabernet Sauvignon (1%)
With its balance and aromatic freshness, Château L'Evangile 2021 reveals the nuances and identity of the great gravel-clay terroirs of Pomerol.
