L'Evangile - Château L'Evangile
  • Very herbaceous notes intermixed with loamy soil scents and a shortage of sweet fruit make for a very differently styled l'Evangile. The wine is somewhat awkward, clumsy, with some hard edges, and the high tannins desiccating the finish. My best instincts suggest that it needs to be drunk up before it loses more fruit and charm. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 3/02.
