The finest second wine l’Evangile has ever made, the 2009 Blason de l’Evangile is primarily made from Merlot blended with about 25% Cabernet Franc. It is a wonderfully expressive, earthy Pomerol offering notes of red and black fruits, new saddle leather, roasted coffee and a touch of underbrush as well as unsmoked cigar tobacco. Already delicious, this evolved beauty should last for another decade. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

A blend of 76% Merlot and 24% Cabernet Franc representing 20% of the crop, this has a very rounded, supple bouquet, a lot of creamy new oak at the moment, with notes of blackberry, briary, crushed stone and a touch of cedar lent by the Cabernet, then a touch of mint. The palate is medium-bodied with touches of mint chocolate on the entry, very lively, quite linear at the moment, slightly grainy tannins with a touch of espresso interlacing the black fruits on the tannic, off-dry finish. A little serious this year. Tasted April 2010.

Pretty aromas of crushed blueberries, with sliced mushrooms that follow through to a full body and chewy tannins with a lovely depth of ripe fruit. Bright acidity. Superb second wine from L'Evangile. Try in 2016. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Heady, perfumed nose. Plenty of dark fruit and cassis. Palate sweet, generous and gourmand but with a freshness supplied by young vine Cabernet Franc (24%). Drink 2014-2024
