ABOUT THE WINE
Chateau l'Evangile has always been considered among the first great growths of Pomerol. Mr. and Mrs. Paul Chaperon owned this small Pomerol estate the mid-19th Century and their direct descendants, the Ducasse Family, have since kept the property in their able hands. In 1990, Mrs. Luis Ducasse, wishing to ensure the long term stability of the vineyard and wanting to maintain the subtle quality of the most elegant wine of the area, brought in as a partner, Les Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite).

TASTING NOTES
The deep ruby/purple-coloured 2002 l'Evangile (75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc) exhibits big, sweet aromas of blackberries, raspberries, and hints of earth as well as truffles. It possesses admirable depth and palate persistence, medium body, outstanding freshness, rich, ripe fruit, good underlying acidity, and a nicely layered finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Goose, duck, hare, rabbit or venison are great accompaniments, herby roasted aubergine and lamb work well too.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
One of the most impressive Pomerols of the vintage.
