Chateau L'EVANGILE Pomerol 2012

Wine Region: Bordeaux - France

Grape: Merlot, Cabernet Franc

Tasting notes: Very fruity nose of blackberries (sour cherries, blackcurrant) with fresh notes of mocha and toast. The attack on the palate is fine, silky with a powerful and balanced tannic structure. The palate is dense and very velvety thanks to the very ripe and coated tannins. The finish is persistent with fruity notes, but it is the quality of the tannins, that dominates.
