Château L’Evangile

Château L’Evangile, 2010

RRP £175

Another Pomerol punching above its weight in 2010, L’Evangile is part of the Lafite Rothschild stable, and this is one of its finest expressions. The purple fruit bouquet is penetrating and assertive, with a sweet, unctuous core, enrobed in chocolate notes. The bottle had just arrived at the tasting via courier and was nice and cold – I think this served it well, cutting through the richness and accentuating the sophisticated black-fruit and graphite suaveness. Nonetheless the wine is – characteristically – immensely concentrated and powerful. It has a long juicy finish and is built to last.
