1985 L'Evangile, Pomerol

SKU #950547

95 points Robert Parker: "L'Evangile's 1985 remains relatively unevolved and youthful. The dark ruby color exhibits no signs of age, and the hugely complex, multi-dimensional bouquet of blackcurrants, raspberries, exotic spices and oak requires coaxing from the glass. Rich, medium to full-bodied, super-concentrated, well-balanced, and tannic, this wine continues to evolve more slowly than other 1985s." (10/94) 93(+?) points Stephen Tanzer: "Deep red. Multidimensional nose melds red berry liqueur, milk chocolate, underbrush, truffle and smoke; seemed to shut down in the glass. Lush, silky and sweet, with sneaky ripe acidity giving the flavors clarity and penetration. Still a bit youthfully tight on the back end, but vinous and long. Drink now through 2015." (Jul/Aug '02) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Rich yet elegant with very deep, concentrated black currant and herb flavors and smoky tannins; long-term potential." (02/88)
