About Chateau L'Evangile
Add Chateau L'Evangile to the list of Bordeaux estates that the Rothschild group renovated and revitalized in the 20th century. Owned by the Ducasse family from 1862 on, the Rothschilds purchased Chateau L'Evangile in 1990.
92-95 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011
(89% merlot and 11% cabernet franc; 3.75 pH; 14.7% alcohol) Opaque purple-ruby. Deep, rich aromas of black plum, violet, licorice and chocolate. Extremely broad and impressively large-scaled, with almost shocking sweetness to the jammy red and black fruit flavors. This huge, extract-rich Pomerol comes across as dense and luscious, but may prove almost too much for some wine lovers. The long finish features refined, smooth tannins. I did not get to taste the estate's second wine this year, Blason d'Evangile, as only 6,000 bottles were made and it won't be offered en primeur
