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’Évangile 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.

Tasting Notes

This is an excellent vintage for Évangile - a blend of 61% Merlot and 39% Cabernet Franc. The nose is intense with toasted and vanilla-scented notes, accompanied by notes of fresh fruit, and black stone fruit. On the palate, the wine has great intensity with very dense, silky, ripe tannins. The finish is long, powerful and particularly persistent.
