Tasting Note:

This wine absolutely bowled us over: from the first traces of its fabulously sumptuous nose to the very end of its long and complex finish, it is a hedonistic pleasure dome of charm and pure enjoyment. There are suave, sexy aromas of sweet, toasty blackberry on the nose, with nuances of perfume; the palate is awash with pure, ripe strawberry; the tannins are so fresh and silky, very morish, and provide a perfect balance to the considerable weight and depth of flavour. This is voluptuous Pomerol at its most flamboyant, utterly irresistible! A blend of 86% merlot and 14% cabernet franc, l'Evangile was the first to begin harvesting in 2006, beginning on 13th September and ensuring a large proportion of their merlot was in before there was any sign of rain.
