The property was known as “Fazilleau” until the mid 18th century, and soon after, became famous under its present denomination “Château L’Évangile”. The 35 acres vineyard is grouped around the Chateau on clay-based gravel. By one of those curious mysteries of Bordeaux soil, a long strip of gravel appears in the middle of the Pomerol Plateau, mixing with the local clay making this right bank merlot dominant wine exquisite.

In 1990, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) acquired L’Evangile with a view to ensuring that the property was looked after to the same high standard. Lafite’s initial influence included a more refined selection of the Grand Vin, and the creation of Blason de L’Évangile as a second wine. Indeed, Blason de L’Évangile, the second label of Château L’Évangile, is selected from vats of the “Grand Vin” Château L’Évangile, it features characteristics similar to those of the “Grand Vin”, with the Grand Vin having longer potential for ageing as its ageing in barrels is much longer. Its name comes from the former owners who used their emblem. It must be drunk younger than its more robust counterpart.

Tasting Notes

Dark purple red with violet hue and black core. Aromatic nose reminiscent of fresh crushed grapes, gingerbread spices, hints of roasting aroma. On the palate well-structured with opulent start but fresh finish, good mid-palate with balanced tannins and sweet fruit. Very opulent but also fresh character with excellent length and very accessible style from an exceptional vintage.
