Description

Evangile has some of the same iron-clay soils as Pétrus, but also 25% gravel. The Cabernet Franc buttresses the ripe, late-harvested Merlot. The wine is super-ripe, the palate dense and powerful. The tannins, not acidity, give texture and bite. The wine is muscular but not on steroids; it is in proportion. Drink 2026-2040.
80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc
