Blason De L’evangile Pomerol Bordeaux Blend Merlot, 2008
$858.57 / case(12)
Blason de l’evangile is selected from the same vats that are used to make the grand vin. It has characteristics similar to the grand vin but less potential for ageing as it is matured in barrels for a shorter period of time. It should be drunk younger than its more robust counterpart. After a grey wet spring resulting in a late problematic flowering (a huge amount of fruit failing to set explaining the very low yield of 27 hl/ha) we had a dry sunny july. An overcast august helped to preserve a fine freshness before wonderful weather in september and october enabled the grapes to fully ripen. Tasting notes (at bottling): intense deep colour; direct open fruity nose with a fine expression of terroir for this 100% merlot wine. In the mouth it is big full-bodied and heady with fresh notes of dark fruit. The finish is long with a mellow balanced deep tannic structure. – blason de l’evangile
