Les Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite)
Domaines Barons De Rothschild (Lafite) Pomerol, France
The Léglise family from Libourne founded what is now Château L’Evangile and during the mid 18th century,they were actively involved in building the Pomerol vineyard. L’Evangile appeared in the 1741 land registry under the name of Fazilleau, and was later sold to a lawyer named Isambert who renamed the estate "L’Evangile".
At the turn of the 19th century, the estate already held much of its current configuration, stretching out over 13 hectares. In 1862 Paul Chaperon purchased L’Evangile. His descendants, the Ducasse family, would remain the property’s owners until 1990 when the estate was purchased by Les Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite).
