Winemaker's Notes

The outstanding Château lEvangile has one of the best reputations in Pomerol, which it well deserves. The mature wine shows a rich, full-bodied nose of black fruits (plums and blackberries), chocolate, toffee, and roasted herbs. The complex bouquet accompanies a medium acidity typical of Merlot-based wines and ripe, plush flavors of compelling richness. Most vintages have strong tannins, giving Château lEvangile one of Pomerols best potential aging profiles of six to twenty-five or even more year...
