Château L'Evangile is one of the prestigious estates in Pomerol and produces some of the most sought-after wines in the appellation. It is located in the far east of the Pomerol appellation and its vineyards border those of Château La Conseillante, Château Gazin and Château Cheval Blanc. Its 14.1 hectares of vineyards (Merlot 78%; Cabernet Franc 22%) lie on deep gravel beds pitted with sand and clay.

James Suckling: 95-96/100
The depth of fruit and creamy tannin structure show the class and beauty of this wine. It’s rich in ever-so-polished tannins that caress every inch of your palate. Medium to full body. Lovely finish.

Jane Anson: 91/100
Good quality, well constructed, enticing floral aromatics, raspberry fruits, freshly cut herbs, a little tight on the finish, not as plush last year's vintage but plenty to enjoy. Almost 80% of the wine comes from the sandier soils harvested early in September, with 15% new oak for ageing, with 20% kept out of oak entirely. Harvest September 4 to 28, 42hl/h yield, a record in recent years here - and this after green harvesting (while retaining leaf cover to guard against the heat spikes). Certified organic since 2021. 15% of overall production in Blason. No need to wait too long to being drinking.

Vinous, Neil Martin : 89-91/100
The 2023 Blason de L'Évangile has an understated bouquet at first, though it soon finds its voice, revealing predominantly red cherries and raspberry fruit intermixed with violet aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly grainy tannins. Silky in texture with a hint of balsamic toward the finish, this will be an approachable Blason that can drink well for a decade.
