One of our favourite Pomerol wines. If only they are more affordable, we can drink more. Ha!
Blend of about 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
If you are looking for a special gift for a client or good friend, this will fit the bill. If its for your own, perhaps buy one to try and if you like add to your cellar collection! Please decant and consume with a nice grilled steak.
'The 2014 L'Evangile comes racing out of the blocks on the nose with plenty of black cherry, blueberry, cold stone and black truffle scents, quintessentially Pomerol with impressive delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly grainy texture, lovely black fruit here laced with Earl Grey, spice and sage, quite intense and fanning out gloriously towards the long finish. This seems to have gained precision after bottling and I did warn that it may merit a higher score. This is a deeply impressive L'Evangile that might challenge Lafite-Rothschild in the long term. Chapeau! Drink 2024 - 2045.' Neal Martin, Wine Advocate 95 pts (2017)
