2012 Château l'Evangile, Pomerol

Part of the Rothschild portfolio. 2012, they note, was a difficult vintage to work with, although l’Evangile was a little easier, due to its high proportion of Merlot: 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. Aged in 100% new oak. A delicate floral and slightly exotic nose of purple flowers, with a little mint just teasing its way through. Velvet textures of plums and damsons, all the fruit ripe and fresh. Tannins soft, ripe and gentle. A wine with lovely structure and balance. Perfect.
