Chateau L’Evangile, Pomerol 2020


Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 99.0

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.

The sculpting of LEvangile that began over the past few vintages continues, and the 2020 is a gorgeous wine. Pristine fruit, silky with a whoosh of menthol. It elevates over the palate, both dense and light, with blueberry and raspberry fruits, and pulses of bitter almond and honeysuckle on the finish that gives focus and spice. Juliette Couderc joined LEvangile (from DBR Lafites Long Dai winery) in September 2020 so for the harvest of this wine, working alongside technical director Olivier Tregoat. 50% first wine, with no Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend this year because it was so over-concentrated that it made too much impact. Increased selective harvesting meant going through vineyard plots six times to bring in the grapes as they ripened. A yield of 32hl/ha. In the final year of organic conversion, so this next vintage 2021 will be certified.

The Grand Vin 2020 Château LEvangile checks in as 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, all of which was brought up in 50% new French oak, with 8% in amphora. Awesome notes of ripe black fruits, darker cherries, chocolate, spicy oak, and smoked tobacco define the aromatics, and its medium to full-bodied, with a seamless, elegant, perfectly balanced mouthfeel, silky tannins, and a great finish. Its not massive yet shows the classic, balanced, elegant style of this estate today beautifully. Hide bottles for 5-7 years (it already offers pleasure) and drink this incredibly classy Pomerol over the following 30 years. Its pure class.
