More about this wine

Château L`Evangile

Château L`Evangile

Chateau L`Evangile is famous for one of the first vineyards in Pomerol. At the beginning of the 19th century the property acquired the look it is in today, and in 1868 L'Evangile was included in the list of Premier Cru du Haut-Pomerol. In 1990, Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite acquired the mansion and from that time the renovation of the vineyards and the winery began. The 14 hectares of vines are planted with Merlot 78% and Cabernet Franc 22% on gravel mixed with sand and clay. Vinification is traditional with long fermentation and maturation in 40% new oak for 16 - 20 months. The quality is constantly growing and with Michel Rolland as a consultant L'Evangile offers a class that competes with that of the famous Pétrus and Lafleur.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.

Merlot

Merlot

Southwest of France is Merlot’s birthplace - the regions of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. Merlot is nowadays widely planted across the world much like Cabernet Sauvignon because it is an early maturing grape variety and because of its ability to ripen fully even in slightly cooler climates. Smooth, velvety, soft and rounded - an “easy drinking" wine with tender tannic structure - these are the common descriptions of Merlot wines.
