Wine Spectator, March 2008
Dark in color almost purple black with pure tapenade and hints of ripe plum and berry. Full-bodied with layer upon layer of velvety tannins and chocolate berry vanilla and tea flavors. Lasts for minutes. I am blown away... Dark in color almost purple black with pure tapenade and hints of ripe plum and berry. Full-bodied with layer upon layer of velvety tannins and chocolate berry vanilla and tea flavors. Lasts for minutes. I am blown away by this wine. This has been amazing since the moment I tasted it from barrel. Reminds me of the superb 1950. Best after 2015. –JS

The 2005 L’Evangile’s gorgeous aromatics consist of spring flowers, black raspberries, licorice, truffle and graphite. The wine is full-bodied, rich, still youthful and backward, with sweet tannin and a long, layered, full-bodied mouthfeel. This stunner is capable of another two to three decades of longevity. The greatest L’Evangile since the 1982 and before the heroic duo of 2009 and 2010? - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, May 2008
Good deep red-ruby. Knockout nose combines black raspberry, plum, minerals, truffle and smoked meat, complicated by torrefaction notes of coffee and chocolate; very ripe but not at all roasted. Enters sweet and silky... Good deep red-ruby. Knockout nose combines black raspberry, plum, minerals, truffle and smoked meat, complicated by torrefaction notes of coffee and chocolate; very ripe but not at all roasted. Enters sweet and silky, with an almost weightless impression, then saturates the palate with seamless flavors of dark berries, minerals and cocoa powder. Finishes long and fresh, with sophisticated, fine-grained tannins and piquant minerality. A beauty.

Wine Enthusiast, June 2008
The Pomerol estate of the Rothschilds of Lafite shows the power of Merlot in 2005, the almost indecent richness of the fruit. It's an opulent, layered wine, spicy, woody and powered though by delicious fruit, ending open...

Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, February 2017
(18/20) Tasted blind. Blackish crimson. Very rich and heady on the nose. Hedonistic. Polish. The creamy fruit just about obliterates the well-managed tannins. Intense and creamy. Not too hot on the end. Classy stuff.
