I have been a massive fan of the 1989 Chateau L'Evangile for many years - the best wine of the decade when it was still under the ownership of the redoubtable Mme. Ducasse, before selling a majority share to Eric de Rothschild in 1990. It fulfils all expectations here with its intense nose of blackberries, raspberry coulis, clove and wild heather. The most surprising aspect is just how backward the aromatics seem to be. The palate is extremely well balanced with fine tannin. The acidity is perfectly pitched with layers of dark berry fruit, black truffle and dried herbs - tres Pomerol. Adorned with a velvety texture, is cruises towards a Merlot-driven finish that is one of the most powerful you will find in Pomerol this vintage. On this showing, you could cellar it for another 5-6 years; if not, I strongly recommend a long decant. Tasted January 2016. Jul 2016, www.robertparker.com
Finely crafted traditional wine. Intense aromas of blackberry, cherry and tobacco. Full-bodied, with lots of tobacco and ripe fruit and velvety tannins.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal. Best after 2001. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 1999.
One of my purposes for doing blind tastings of wines I have tasted frequently and feel I know well is to have results such as this. I had never thought the 1989 L'Evangile was an outstanding wine. But a bottle drunk in a French restaurant in early 1996 made me think there was more to this wine than I had originally believed. This blind tasting confirmed that while the 1989 is no 1990, it is far closer in quality than I had originally written. However, readers should realize that it is surprisingly variable from bottle to bottle. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 109.
