Château L' Evangile Pomerol Ex-Negociant 2010
"Gorgeous raspberry ganache, fig and boysenberry fruit is liberally laced with fruitcake and graphite. Superracy, with linzer torte and red licorice taking over the finish. Very long, with lots going on here already….94-97." WS 4/11. "The dense purple-colored 2010 exhibits massive levels of black raspberries, Asian plum sauce, truffles and cassis. The wine is unctuously textured and remarkably fresh with a weighty richness...96-98" WA 5/11

External Reviews for Château L' Evangile Pomerol Ex-Negociant
Another spectacular effort from L’Evangile, the 2010 is a close rival to the 2009 and should be fascinating to compare with that vintage over the next 30 or so years. Stunningly rich and black/purple in color, the 2010 L’Evangile offers up the tell-tale floral note as well as black raspberry jam intermixed with cassis and kirsch. There are also ethereal floral notes and a hint of background oak. The pH is slightly above average (3.7 versus the pH of 4.0 that the 2009 and 2000 possessed). This is a massive, rich, very impressive L’Evangile, and readers should take note of the “+” in my rating, which could certainly push this wine way up there. Remarkably, I was shocked when I learned that this wine was aged in 100% new oak, as the oak is a background element in this blockbuster l’Evangile. Forget it for 3–5 years, and drink it over the following 30–40.
2010: As I have been predicting, the Rothschilds are pushing l'Evangile to the highest level of the Pomerol hierarchy. Composed of 88.8% Merlot and 11.2% Cabernet Franc, the 2010 achieved 14.7% alcohol naturally, making it one of the few 2010s with l... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Extremely complex with black olives violets and brown sugar. Superb nose. Full body with a impressive density and richness. The quality of the tannins is so very stunning giving a wonderful texture. Fresh and bright. Such length. Try in 2017. James Suckling.
With only 31 hecoliters per hectare yields were low in 2010. From an assemblage of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc Jean-Pascal Vazart confirmed the wine reached a record high for the property at 14.7% alcohol with a pH of 3.75. This unique combination of high alcohol and acidity allows the wine to feel fresh on your palate. Deep in color fresh flowers chocolate black and red plums black cherry and truffle make a complex perfume. Rich concentrated plush with freshness the wine finishes with creamy chocolate covered dark berries licorice and plum liqueur. This wine could increase in score as it evolves. Jeff Leve.

Gorgeous raspberry ganache, fig and boysenberry fruit is liberally laced with fruitcake and graphite. Superracy, with linzer torte and red licorice taking over the finish. Very long, with lots going on here already. Tasted non-blind. -J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 LEvangile 1500ml
A Pomerol of a different color relying heavily on dense muscle and dark charcoal notes with a core of fig blackberry paste and blueberry reduction waiting in reserve. Very solid through the finish displaying a thick ganache coating and extra loam black licorice and dark fig notes rolling through. Best from 2017 through 2037. -JM Wine Spectator.
