This powerful Pomerol has been under the control of the wine making team from Lafite since 1990 and in recent years the quality has been excellent. Very limited quantity. Baron Eric de Rothschild said of the estate "We could never resist to an extraordinary, unique terroir. Very different from the Médoc but absolutely outstanding". The 2010 gets 96-98 from Robert Parker "As I have been predicting, the Rothschilds are pushing l'Evangile to the highest level of the Pomerol hierarchy....A marvellous effort, it, along with the 2009, may turn out to be one of the two greatest wines made by l'Evangile. The 2010 should drink well young yet last for three decades or more".
