A beautiful L’Evangile and one of the vintage’s top successes, the color still retains a very dense ruby/purple with only a bit of lightening at the edge. A classic nose of liquid intermixed with black raspberries., blackberries, licorice, and a hint of truffle jumps from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, very concentrated, well-balanced, sweet, authoritatively powerful yet at the same time elegant wine. It has reached full maturity , where it should rest for some time to come. (RP)
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. (ST) 93+
Rich yet elegant with very deep, concentrated black currant and herb flavors and smoky tannins; long-term potential.
There is a delicious greenness to this wine with green tea and green coffee bean. Hints of plum, too. Some herb and smoke. Medium body, soft and easy. Old style Bordeaux. Needs drinking.
Extremely deep colour. Similar still-crimson hue to the 1990 but even deeper. Less heavy than the 1990 with more obvious acidity -- that streak of refreshman that can be excessive in mnay 1985s now serves this rich style of wine particularly well. Less opulent than the 1990 but a more complete, slightly better balanced wine. Wonderfuly sleek with a beginning, middle and end to the tasting experience. 19/20 points.
