Opens with notes of smoldering willow brush and sweet cassis jam with assertive top notes of mint and pencil lead. There is a touch of brett lurking here but it only adds complexity to the dark plum and cassis fruit notes. Big and lush in the mouth. This is complex and precise with impeccable balance. Rich with good length to the red cassis gentle backed with herbs and a sneaky mineral tone that prevents this from being too sweet. The fruit is absolutely explosive, superb Bordeaux 2008-2030 97pts

This had a damaged cork and high shoulder fill. The nose was decidely musty with an earthy, beet-rooty core. Lovely bottle sweetness up front that competes with the earthy, musty midpalate. there is some purple pudding sweet fruit lurking deep down across the palate but this bottle ultimately ends up being short and shallow though with an appealing licorice tinged finish. Drink em if you got em

This wine was spectacularly complex with a ruby red color, gentle acidity and little tannin. The Rothschild ownership of L'Evangile has really done great things for the quality of the wine - 70% new French oak - more than Petrus. The 2008 had notes of blackberries, chocolate, and mushrooms. It tasted and smelled like a beautiful perfume.

Fantastic wine. Lots of raspberry and black cherry fruit intertwined with sweet plums. Mdium to full bodied, supple-textured, silky wine. Really enjoyed this one

Really liked this one, low in acidity, very smooth and well integrated despite its relative youth

The Grand Vin is a blend of 87% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc picked from 27 September and 5 October at 13.03% alcohol (to be exact!) raised in 100% new oak. The bouquet is very pure and intense - there is patently some top quality Merlot here. The palate is medium-bodied with sinewy tannins matched by some of the most concentrated fruit you will find in this vintage. No there is not the persistency or grip towards the finish of a great L

This is very agreeable with raspberry light vanilla and chocolate character. Medium body with fresh acidity and a clean finish. Very delicious and fun. Delicate. 27 hectoliers per hectare rather than the usual 35. 87% merlot and 13% cabernet franc; it shows a little more of the latter than normal. James Suckling.

In 2012 there is only a small quantity of Blason de LEvangile. Flowering meant there was only 31hl/ha and 73% of the crop went into the Grand Vin. The Merlot was picked between 20th September and 9th October and the Cabernet Franc from 6th to the 8th October between which on only eight days did pickers go out with their secateurs. Of the parcels originating from their purchase of La Croix de Gay three hectares was blended into Blason whilst one hectare situated between Lafleur and Providence was good enough for the Grand Vin. A blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc almost identical to the previous vintage and delivering a relatively high 14.4% alcohol it has a finely tuned forest floor-scented bouquet with crisp red berry fruit quite conservative but showing impressive delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with a tense saline entry. This is a typical masculine LEvangile broody and introspective at the moment. There are clearly sweet tannins at the core of this Pomerol legend but it will demand several years in bottle to come round. Tasted April 2013. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

Tasted en primeur at the property with Jean-Pascal Vazart. The L Evangile 2011 is a blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc picked between 6th with the young vines and 21st September and 19th to 21st September respectively cropped at 32hl/ha. It has 13.6 degrees alcohol and a pH of 3.7 an IPT of 76. As usual this cru is always taciturn at first and so I leave my sample for a few minutes before writing any notes. It has a voluptuous sensual bouquet with pure vanillary red berry fruit that reminds me of the 1995. The palate is medium-bodied with a nubile texture with supple toasty red fruit that is struck through with crisp acidity and a fine coca-tinged off-dry finish that displays persistency and a pastille-like residual sweetness. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

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.
