Château L’Evangile 2016 – Pomerol

The nose is fruity, elegant, racy and offers a beautiful definition and a beautiful finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of fleshy blackberry and fleshy cassis associated with small touches of fleshy raspberry, small blue fruits, ripe / crushed redcurrants as well as slight touches of racy minerality, slight toasted touches / caramelization as well as discreet hints of tonka bean and coffee (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, beautifully elegant, velvety, gourmande, very discreetly tight and offers a very beautiful grain, depthness, a beautiful definition, an aerial side, a beautiful finesse and tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy blueberry / blue fruits and small notes of strawberry associated with fine touches of crushed raspberry, racy minerality as well as hints of chocolate, toasted hints / caramelization, subtle hints of spices and very discreet hints of almond. Tannins are elegant and very slightly chewy. Good length. Beautiful persistence (with hints of chocolate). Keep it in cellar !
