Château l'Evangile Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Parker review: It was an atypically late harvest at this famed Pomerol estate, beginning on<br/>September 29 and ending on October 14. Even more remarkable were the<br/>frighteningly low yields of 20 hectoliters per hectare. The final blend was 88%<br/>Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc, and the natural alcohol hit 13.7%, among the<br/>highest of the last one-hundred years. The acidity is surprisingly good given<br/>the ripeness of the fruit and the generally high alcohols in the 2008 Bordeaux.<br/>The dense purple-colored 2008 l'Evangile exhibits a floral nose of sweet<br/>mulberries, black currants, and black cherries, a full-bodied, lush texture,<br/>silky tannins, and an exceptionally fine finish. While not that evolved, this<br/>precocious Pomerol was tasting unusually well for such a young barrel sample.<br/>It should drink well for 15-20 years.(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate -<br/>Apr-2009)

This wine was spectacularly complex with a ruby red color, gentle acidity and little tannin. The Rothschild ownership of L'Evangile has really done great things for the quality of the wine - 70% new French oak - more than Petrus. The 2008 had notes of blackberries, chocolate, and mushrooms. It tasted and smelled like a beautiful perfume.

Château l'Evangile has always been considered among the first great growths of Pomerol. Located on the noble part of the Pomerol plateau between Pétrus and Cheval Blanc, the vines grow on a soil and subsoil in which sand and clay alternate with layers of pure gravel. The resulting wine is powerful, distinguished, and has an incomparably fine bouquet. It is appreciated around the world. For many wine lovers, the hallmarks of l'Evangile are subtlety and elegance. In 2004, Château l'Evangile renovated their cellar to reflect the progress made in the vineyard (gradual replanting, plot-by-plot vineyard management, rigorous sorting of grapes, etc.) and aim for even higher quality. The new vat room makes it possible to ferment grapes from different parcels separately, and the circular underground cellar makes maximum use of gravity flow. Château l'Evangile produces approximately 3,000 cases of wine a year, all of which is aged in new oak barrels for 18 months. The second wine, Blason de l'Evangile, is made from young vines.

Fleshy but pure and elegant with a gorgeous beam of raspberry ganache plum sauce and cherry preserve laced with subtle graphite spice and violet hints. The long finish is persistent but with some admirable power in reserve. Best from 2013 through 2020. 2 700 cases made. -JM Wine Spectator.

Exotic aromas of blackberries and roses. Orange peel and perfumes. Milk chocolate as well. Full-bodied, with a lovely texture of round tannins and a long, long finish. A beauty. Easily outstanding. 88 percent Merlot, 12 percent Cabernet Franc. —J.S. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Evangile, L' 750ml
