Tasting Notes:

The milk chocolate, berry and cedar character on the nose is subtle and refined. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a refined finish. All in finesse and elegance. Best after 2011. 3,330 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

A stunning example of the vintage, the 2004 l’Evangile is not far off the pace of their brilliant 2005. A blend of 89% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc (3,000+ cases produced), it exhibits a deep ruby/plum color, superb ripeness, and sweet blackberry, truffle, acacia flower, licorice, and toasty oak aromas. This knock-out effort is surprisingly rich, opulent, and fruity with good glycerin, medium to full body, and a stunning finish. It should drink beautifully young yet age for 15 or more years.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Château L'Évangile, archaically Fazilleau, is a Bordeaux wine estate from the appellation Pomerol. The winery is located on the Right Bank of the Bordeaux wine region, in the commune of Pomerol in the department Gironde. As all wine produced in this appellation, Château L'Évangile is unclassified, but the estate is estimated among the great growths of the region. Placed on the eastern outskirts of Pomerol, the vineyard lies in a cluster with Vieux Château Certan, Château Pétrus, Château La Conseillante, near the border of Saint-Émilion and its nearest estate Château Cheval Blanc. The château also produces a second wine named Blason de L'Évangile. L’Évangile appeared in the 1741 land registry under the name of Fazilleau, founded by the Libourne family Léglise. At the turn of the 19th century the property was sold to a lawyer named Isambert who gave the estate its present name, following the example set by Arnaud at neighbouring Pétrus. In 1862, L’Évangile was purchased by Paul Chaperon, whose descendants, the Ducasse family remained the estate’s owners until 1990, when L’Évangile was acquired by Domaines Barons de Rothschild, the owners of Château Lafite Rothschild.
