Chateau L’Evangile, Pomerol 2012


Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 95.0

Château l’Évangile is a wellknown winery in the Pomerol appellation of the Bordeaux region. Property of Domaine Baron de Rothschild this 22 hectares vineyard is mainly composed of Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Franc (20%). Here, terroir gives its best to offer the finest Merlot of Bordeaux region. Certified biodynamic as of the 2020 vintage under the viticultural lead of Juliette Couderc, there has been a subtle stylistic change to the wine. The estate has evolved into producing a more elegant claret by placing an emphasis on picking earlier to retain freshness, while using less new oak to enhance fruit purity.



Julia Harding MW

93% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc. 73% of the wine went into the grand vin. 14.4% alcohol (15% in 2010, 13.9% in 2011), pH 3.7. Work in vineyard paying off: drainage for the heavy clay parts of the estate. Rich and inky colour. Definite mineral overlay on the dark fruit, adding freshness. and theres a hint of exotic spice and delicate complexity. Dense and rich and juicy. Already harmonious though with the structure to age. Finishes fresh and refreshing, quite surprising given the alcohol. Very good length and plenty of tannin but refined in texture so will certainly become velvety. (JH)

Jane Anson

93% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc. Not the easiest vintage, yet the luscious fruit is evident even on the nose. Concentrated and silky, with an intense cassis expression. Perhaps a little short compared to the best vintages, but the attack is very complete. Low Cabernet Franc because many replanted vines were still young at this point. Tasting great today but is not one to age for too long. One of the surprises of the tasting.
