Captivating aromas of wild raspberry cherry mineral and grilled meat mark this full-bodied wine along with hugesilky tannins and an extra-long caressing finish.

Tasted from an ex-château bottle in London, the 1998 L'Evangile is turning into a splendid Pomerol. It has a very expressive bouquet with Cabernet Franc sitting prominently above the blackberry and dark cherry fruit, hints of tobacco and black truffle developing nicely. The palate is medium-bodied and just like the aromatics, beautifully defined. There is something sensual about this L'Evangile, which is normally one of the most structured wines from the Pomerol plateau. That initial burst of fruit is replaced by earthier Cabernet Franc notes towards the finish and these become more accentuated after 20-30 minutes in the glass. This is a Château L'Evangile that has more to give, so allow it another 4-5 years in the cellar. Tasted February 2016. - Neal Martin
