The Blason de l'Evangile is the second wine of Château l'Évangile, with shorter barrel aging than the first wine and therefore less powerful. Nevertheless, it remain in the category of the Grand Vins with the particularity of being drinkable earlier than his big brother.
Appellation : Pomerol, Bordeaux
Pomerol The Pomerol appellation stretches on a plateau on the right bank of the Dordogne river, about 40km north east of Bordeaux.
In Pomerol, merlot is king. The typical clay soils of Pomerol allow this varietal to express like nowhere else in the world.
Grapes selected for Blason are stemming from clay-sand and silty sand slopes with a clayey subsoil.
These ligther soils allow for better root penetration and provide more regular and less limiting water supplies.
The resulting wine is supple and elegant, lighter in style and more fruit driven than the Grand Vin, making it more accessible in its youth.
