Equiv. £208.33 per bottle

Tasting Note:

Produced from 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, this Domaines Barons de Rothschild property has struck the right chords in 2016 with a dark, salty and mineral effort. Initially there is an abundance of black fruits, pure crème de cassis, blackcurrant jam and hints of graphite. Then there are starry bright fruits and hints of stony minerals. This is an admirably deep and polished wine. The 2016 Evangile is a rich, large-scale Pomerol with a deeply mineral character - one senses a more technical style here than say VCC and the tannins are more evident than at some estates, but that really shouldn't be a problem - there is such concentration and an abundance of fruit. It feels more classical than some of the more tamed, polished examples from Pomerol. This really is a deeply impressive Vin de Garde.
