Tasting Notes L'Evangile 1982

98

A blockbuster, dark plum/garnet-colored wine, the 1982 L'Evangile reveals a decadent, extravagantly rich nose of caramelized fruit, plum, licorice, smoked meats, and toffee. This opulent, full-bodied Pomerol caresses the palate with layers and layers of glycerin and fruit. The tannin is barely noticeable in this massive, rich, gorgeous effort. The complexity of the nose alone is worth a special admission price. It is close to full maturity, and is capable of lasting another 20-25 years. Release price: ($210.00/case)

Tasted at Pebbles/Zachy's 1982 dinner in Hong Kong. I have never been totally convinced about the pedigree of the 1982 L'Evangile, especially having tasted the superior 1989 not long before this. The nose is reticent despite vigorous coaxing and is out-performed by the l'Arrosee '82 tasted alongside. It does come out of its shell a little with time, with scents of blackberry pastille, wild heather and cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with a firm backbone, perhaps a little rustic compared to its peers, old-fashioned and yet full of charm. The finish is harmonious with a crisp, slightly pointed finish that needs a little more persistency. This is very fine, but not great L'Evangile. Tasted November 2012.
