Château L’Evangile 2021
L'Évangile is a Bordeaux house located on the famous plateau of Pomerol. It is within this natural laboratory that the terroir and the sky bring a new lesson for each vintage. "
Saskia de Rothschild
It is by one of those mysteries of geology that, to the south-east of the Pomerol plateau, a curious accident brings to the surface a long line of gravel. Three vineyards, including L'Évangile, share this rare land.
The estate occupies a privileged position: it is bordered to the north by the vines of Château Pétrus and is only separated to the south from Cheval Blanc in Saint-Emilion by a secondary road.
The surface area is 22 hectares of sandy-clay soil with pure gravel and a subsoil marked by iron dross. The associated grape varieties are Merlot (80%) which brings fruit, body and flesh, and gives the wine its inimitable suppleness and the "Bouchet" (20%), for finesse and structure.
Second wine, Le Blason de L'Evangile.
