Decanter: After the slightly leaner 2014, this is a full-bodied, rich, opulent Evangile with a powerful presence of ripe tannin and freshness provided by the 16% Cabernet Franc. Weighty but refined and with staying power. 94 Points

Tasting Notes
The Wine Advocate - "The 2015 L'Evangile is a blend of 84% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc picked between September 15 and October 5, and September 29 to October 5 respectively. Matured almost in 100% new oak, it has a very pure and charming bouquet, the Merlot dominant and slightly shrouding the Cabernet Franc at the moment. It is worth staying with this Pomerol, because it does change after four to five minutes in the glass, revealing touches of truffle and iodine. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity, understated on the entry but gaining momentum in the glass, retaining a wonderful sense of symmetry and finishing with precision and class. This could well be the pick of the wines from the Domaines Barons Rothschild stable in 2015 and kudos to winemaker Jean-Pascal Vazart. Barrel Sample: 96-98 Points"
Ratings
James Suckling - "What a wine here. It is so traditional and powerful with super depth of fruit and chewy tannins. Full body, incredible concentration and length. It’s so muscular and powerful. So minerally and nutty (walnuts). Marvelous. Barrel Sample: 99-100"
Other Notes
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).
