Superb definition and sense of clarity. The palate is medium-bodied, a hint of iodine on the entry but lovely cohesion and harmony on the mid-palate, sensuous towards the finish. Very stylish. This is one of the finest wines from L’Evangile in recent years. Bravo!

The sexy dark ruby/purple-tinged 2006 l'Evangile achieved 14% natural alcohol as high as any of the great vintages at this estate. Abundant amounts of dark raspberry and black cherry fruit intertwined with sweet plums and hints of figs as well as spring flowers jump from the glass of this medium to full-bodied fleshy supple-textured silky wine. Drink it now or cellar it for 15-20 years.

A big, rich chocolaty wine with delicious spice and ripe tannins. The fruit is sumptuously rich, blackberry juice flavors balancing the power and concentration of the texture. In all this richness, there is just enough... A big, rich chocolaty wine with delicious spice and ripe tannins. The fruit is sumptuously rich, blackberry juice flavors balancing the power and concentration of the texture. In all this richness, there is just enough freshness to lift the finish.

Reduced wild nose offers black raspberry graphite tobacco and dried flowers. Sweet dense and deep with a lush texture for the year and a chocolatey ripeness to the flavors of leather game and cedar. For such a pliant sexy Pomerol this has lovely verve and backbone.

Displays blackberry and earth with a mushroom undertone. Full-bodied with pleasant fruit and a medium finish. Tight. Needs to come together. A little disappointing after such an amazing 2005. Best after 2014. 2900 cases... Displays blackberry and earth with a mushroom undertone. Full-bodied with pleasant fruit and a medium finish. Tight. Needs to come together.
