    One word found its way into each of our Evangile tasting notes - Œ delicious. This is a great success, feminine and graceful yet with a depth of character and subtle complexity that make it one of the wines of the vintage.

  • Robert Parker, June 2004, Score: 91

    While not up to the quality level of the stratospheric 2000, the deep ruby/purple-colored 2001 l'Evangile is a beauty. Revealing notes of beef blood, black fruits, and white flowers, it ismedium-bodied and lush with sweet tannin, a pliant, opulent texture, and a long, rich finish revealing hints of forest floor, truffles, and licorice. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2017.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2002, Score: 16.5

    Very deep crimson. Very dense. Not much nose except for a vague whiff of blackcurrant and boiled sweets. Chunky tannins. Astringent without enough sleek fruit in the middle. Lacks purity. Drink 2008-2018

Producer

Château l'Evangile

L'Evangile has long been one of the most sought after Right Bank châteaux. Since the Rothschildfamily (the Lafite branch) purchased the estate in 1990, its quality has rivalled neighbouring Pétrus and Lafleur.

Region

Pomerol

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
