2014 l'Evangile, Pomerol (Previously $160)

SKU #1303995 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 L'Evangile comes racing out of the blocks on the nose with plenty of black cherry, blueberry, cold stone and black truffle scents, quintessentially Pomerol with impressive delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly grainy texture, lovely black fruit here laced with Earl Grey, spice and sage, quite intense and fanning out gloriously towards the long finish. This seems to have gained precision after bottling and I did warn that it may merit a higher score. This is a deeply impressive L'Evangile that might challenge Lafite-Rothschild in the long term. Chapeau! (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The blackberry, mushroom and oyster-shell character really comes out. Full body and flavors of dark chocolate, walnuts and concentrated berries. Structured. Bitter-chocolate aftertaste. Inner quote mark (2/2017)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Big, bold and ripe, this is a rich wine with its 82% Merlot. It is jammy while keeping its tannins and structure. Ripe and full in the mouth, the wine is firm enough to age for a long time. It is going to be generous, full and ripe. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A blend of 82% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc from the team at Rothschild, the 2014 L’Evangile is a ripe, sexy effort that gives up lots of cassis and black raspberry fruits, toasty oak, Asian spices, and chocolate. A wine that gains depth and richness with time in the glass, it offers medium to full-bodied richness, a silky, expressive style, and sweet tannin, all making for a seductive, impossible to resist Pomerol. This beauty hit 14% natural alcohol, so it’s no lightweight, yet it lacks the depth and density of the 2015. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This alluring red features velvety tannins carrying notes of crushed plum, warm blackberry preserves and dark licorice, gaining muscle through the charcoal-scored finish. There's a deep tug of warm earth throughout, and this needs a little time to stretch out. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2017)
