Tasting Note:

We tasted with Juliette Couderc, the new winemaker at Evangile, who arrived at the chateau in 2020 following a stint at Domaine de Long Dai (the Rothschild's estate in Shandong Province). She is full of enthusiasm, is clearly very gifted and has had an immediate impact on the wines. This is one of the most cohesive and impressive Evangiles we've tasted for a while. There's a real sense of control and harmony. Nothing is disjointed or out of place. Much more complex than the Blason, with a real florality to the bouquet. Ripe griotte and damsons mingle with hints of pot pourri and cedar. The palate is bright and pure with a sense of tension and verve. Texturally suave, the mid-palate possesses a fine concentration with suggestions of dark hedgerow fruits and blueberries, framed by well-judged tannins and a bright engaging vein of acidity. Bravo.
