Château l’Evangile

Château l’Evangile possesses the rare duality of professionalism and joviality – from the owner Baron Eric Rothschild – to the château staff.

L’Evangile comprises just 10 hectares, having pulled up a lot of vines to focus more on quality, and produces wines which are uncharacteristically muscular for Pomerol - and some of the most sought after of the appellation.

In 1990 the Rothschild group took controlling interest of l’Evangile, which was previously run by the formidable Madame Ducasse who was still running it in her 90s. Madame was initially sceptical of the Baron Eric’s intentions and wouldn’t let the Rothschild’s winemaker, Charles Chevallier, near the vines, and so he used to have to sneak around the vineyard just to see how things were progressing.
