2001 l'Evangile, Pomerol

SKU #1008870 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tasted at the Dynasty restaurant in Hong Kong. Served from a magnum, the 2001 l’Evangile is a beautiful wine. It has a sensual bouquet with black fruits, black truffle, a fleeting glimpse of an exotic scent such as almond and coconut that is soon replaced by earthier aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine balance, supple and succulent in the mouth with a smooth, velvety texture, the opulent finish belying the structure underneath. The finish is decorated with black truffle and a touch of liquorice, although I would have liked a little more length here. Tasted November 2011. (Neil Martin's Wine Journal)  (1/ 2012)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Dark ruby-red. Deep, inviting aromas of sappy berry liqueur and truffle. Lush, silky and sweet, with expressive flavors of blackberry, currant, truffle and chocolate nicely framed by harmonious acidity. The most classically Pomerol of these three vintages, but also has solid underlying structure. The broad tannins spread out to coat the palate on the suave, subtly gripping finish.  (5/ 2005)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Beautiful aromas of chocolate, blackberry and light cappuccino follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long finish. Delicious already but will be much better in a few years. Yummy wine. Best after 2008.  (3/ 2004)

K&L Notes

79% Merlot, 21% Cab Franc. A big wine with chocolate aromas. Closed a bit, but holding back. Will be great. Has everything there--just needs to blossom out. Superb.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
