History of Château L’Evangile
L’ Évangile is a House in Bordeaux situated on the famed plateau of Pomerol. It is at the heart of this natural laboratory that the earth and the heavens bring new lessons for each vintage. ” – Saskia de Rothschild
In 1990, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) acquired L’Evangile from the Ducasse family, who had run the property since around 1900. They were interested in bringing sustained care to the operation and their initial influence included a more refined selection of the fine wines, and the creation of Blason de L’Evangile as a second wine. Efforts also included enhancing the vines’ health with a restoration and renewal plan partially completed until 1998. The complete renovation of the vat room and the cellar which was finished in 2004 allowed the property to complete its new configuration. A remarkable decade of vintages from 1995 to 2005 crowned the work with success.
