Intensity and sexiness, velvet textured and sensuous, this is bottled decadence. The finish resists fading, serving up dark chocolate and ripe, sweet, juicy, black plums that expand for close to 60 seconds. Balanced, fresh, opulent, long and expansive, this is a contender for the best wine ever to come out of l'Evangile. If you want to know what spell binding is, try this wine!

Superfine tannins, yet this is muscular and long. An amazing wine reminiscent of the great L’Evangiles of the 1950s. Straight track. Goes on and on. Truly great wine. Try in 2024. Just a baby.

Made from 84% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc brought up in plenty of new oak, its ruby/plum color is followed by an awesome bouquet of blackberry jam, smoked meats, licorice, truffle, and hints of chocolate. Thick, opulent, super ripe, and decadent, with a full-bodied mouthfeel that needs to be tasted to be believed, it still stays balanced and fresh on the palate and is already impossible to resist. It’s going to keep for 3+ decades. This is one of those wines I wish every reader could taste!

Deep garnet-purple in color, it absolutely leaps from the glass with complex, gregarious notes of blackberry pie, plum preserves, smoked meats/charcuterie, mocha and licorice plus suggestions of cloves, black soil and unsmoked cigars. Full-bodied, rich, opulent and jaw-droppingly sexy, it has beautifully plush yet firm tannins with a lively backbone and a very long, spicy finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Full of class and distinction, high in alcohol but barely perceptible because it is so packed out with layers of fruit. This has a lovely density and power, very ripe but not excessively so.

This has a lovely density and power, very ripe but not excessively so. It is closed right now, but this is going to grow into one of the great vintages at L'Evangile. 100% new oak, but already melted into the overall structure of the wine.

Finishes with a broad loamy swath of fruit and tobacco, showing a strong echo of mocha and tar. This packs some serious punch. Best from 2024 through 2040. 2,000 cases made. — JM

The palate is well balanced with succulent red berry fruit, smooth in texture with sweet vanilla-y new oak toward the finish that will require a couple of years to fully subsume. This is a fine Pomerol but it does not match my note from 12 months previously. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. -- Neal Martin
