Falstaff (09-2017) Dark carmine garnet, ocher reflections, broad brightening of the edges. Delicately caramelized nuances of dried figs that herald the hot vintage, nuances of strawberry jam and pickled cherries, delicate of Turkish honey and chamomile, very multi-faceted and inviting, some cedar and Havana tobacco. Juicy, elegant body, silky and sweet texture, round tannins, almost creamy in the finish, stays on for a very long time, fine herbal spice and nougat in the aftertaste, but here too the freshness given by the terroir does not miss.

(01-2016) I have been a massive fan of the 1989 Château L'Evangile for many years - the best wine of the decade when it was still under the ownership of the redoubtable Mme. Ducasse, before selling a majority share to Eric de Rothschild in 1990. It fulfils all expectations here with its intense nose of blackberries, raspberry coulis, clove and wild heather. The most surprising aspect is just how backward the aromatics seem to be. The palate is extremely well balanced with fine tannin. The acidity is perfectly pitched with layers of dark berry fruit, black truffle and dried herbs - très Pomerol. Adorned with a velvety texture, is cruises towards a Merlot-driven finish that is one of the most powerful you will find in Pomerol this vintage. On this showing, you could cellar it for another 5-6 years; if not, I strongly recommend a long decant.

Evangile (L\')

The great wine of Chateau The Gospel is described in an old edition of "Great Wines of Bordeaux" (published Dussaut) such as "... full of wine, elegant with a bouquet and finesse incomparable". For many fans, the quality and subtle elegance is indeed the mark of this wine. Grapes partners in wine: 80-90% Merlot, 10-20% Cabernet Franc. Duration of aging in oak barrels: 18 months 70% new oak. Average annual production: 2 000-3 000 cases per year. . After a winter cold and wet, high temperatures in March and in April has encouraged the start of vegetation. Then, a long gray period, temperate, not excessive, lasted until August, requiring increased technical supervision. The weather has stabilized in early September and eventually promote peace and good ripening grapes. This vintage is characterized by one year to 13 moons and a longer growing season than normal. . Nose discrete. The palate is very round, attack wide, generous environment. End with a solid texture. Boise melted very. .
