2010 l'Evangile, Pomerol

SKU #1131665 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. (RP) 98+ Inner quote mark (2/2013)

97 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Concentrated and closed on the nose, this has silky, seductive, finely-layered tannins, with tons of fruit and acidity providing the counterpoint. We are very definitely stepping up a level here, even among the extremely good quality wines that I am tasting. The depth and texture are striking, as are the exotic notes of anis and black peppercorns, and the whispers of iris and violet flowers as things open up in the glass. Such a lovely property, really showing what it can do. (JA) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Superb aromas of blackberry, blueberry, violets and citrus peel. Some oyster shell and dark chocolate. Full body, dense and powerful with chewy tannins and lots of rich fruit at the finish. Turns to walnut and dark berry. I love the texture and richness. A wine to follow for your lifetime. Just opening a little now. Inner quote mark (3/2018)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good medium ruby. Enticing aromas of dark plum, blackcurrant, coffee liqueur and cinnamon are lifted by an intense note of violet. Sweet, lush and round, combining a fine-grained texture and terrific focus thanks to vibrant but harmonious acidity. Finishes very long and pure, with ripe but still youthfully chewy tannins. This very attractive 2010 ought to evolve gracefully for decades. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Oak-char first impression but there's lots of sweet ripe fruit there too. Juicy, generous and very giving. So generous in its fruit even though there is plenty of ripe tannin there. Luscious. (JR) 17.5/20 points Inner quote mark (4/2012)

K&L Notes

94 points Lisa Perotti-Brown in Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet in color, the 2010 L'Evangile strides confidently out of the glass with notes of chocolate-covered cherries, vanilla pod, sweaty leather and baked plums plus hints of tobacco leaf and cinnamon stick. Full-bodied, the generously fruited palate has a lovely, plush frame with oodles of freshness and a spicy kick to the finish." (3/2020)
