-Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide No 7

The dark purple-colored 1999 L'Evangile is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. It reveals an unexpected touch of herbaceousness, which cost it a point or two in the ultimate rating. Nevertheless, the striking, evolved, hedonistic perfume of melted licorice intermixed with black raspberries, minerals, and truffles is an intellectual turn-on. This is a beautiful, medium to full-bodied L'Evangile with a sweet attack and mid-palate. It may merit a higher score, depending on its evolution. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2015.

First tasted March 2000: dark ruby. Backward nose: tar, raisin. Very complex. Brooding, tannic masculine palate: completely unevolved. Well-balanced. Dense black fruits with a ripe minerally finish. This is a titanic wine that justifies L'Evangile as one of the longest lived Pomerols. Another 10+ yrs. Tasted again in November 2003: a beautiful minerally nose, with tar and cooked meats. Fine definition. The palate has good concentration, well-balanced with a plump mid-palate. Quite backward and broody at the moment with minerally black fruits. This is another long-term wine.
