The balance and aromatic richness of a Pomerol red wine
Château L'Évangile was gradually built up by the Léglise family from Libourne in the mid-18th century, and was soon considered a "Premier Cru du Haut-Pomerol." After being owned by the Ducasse family, in 1990 that Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite purchased the estate, keen to elevate it to its highest level. From the vineyard to the cellar, Château L'Évangile has undergone major restructuring and modernisation, enabling the estate to become one of the finest references in the Pomerol appellation.
Château L'Évangile is a Pomerol wine from a vineyard in a privileged position 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 famous iron residue.
The vintage was marked by drought. Budburst on 7 April. The vines stopped growing early and defoliated in areas of superficial gravel. Despite the extreme weather conditions, the grapes were able to retain their aromatic richness and optimum freshness.
Château l'Évangile 2022 is a blend of Merlot (82%), Cabernet Franc (17.5%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (0.5%).
