Tasting Notes L'Evangile 1995

92

This wine is closed, backward, and marginally less impressive than I thought from cask. It is still an outstanding l'Evangile that may prove to be longer-lived than the sumptuous 1990, but perhaps not as opulently-styled. It remains one of the year's's top efforts. The dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by aromas of minerals, black raspberries, earth, and spice. The bottled wine seems toned down (too much fining and filtration?), compared with the pre-bottling samples, which had multiple layers of flesh and flavor dimension. High tannin in the finish and plenty of sweet fruit on the palate suggest this wine will turn out to be extra special. Could it have been even better if the filters had been junked in favor of a natural bottling? I think so, yet that being said, the wine's ferocious tannin level cannot conceal its outstanding ripeness, purity, and depth. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020. Last tasted, 10/02.

Tasted at Roberson's Pomerol tasting. This vintage of Chateau L'Evangile has always been a frustratingly perplexing, mercurial Pomerol and this bottle is not different. The nose is very strange, offering nothing at all at the beginning and then an earthy, slightly rubbery/reductive bouquet. Confusingly, the palate has much more to offer with a supple entry and rounded tannins. Dark cherries and dried orange peel, a touch of cranberry and a lovely harmonious long finish. It is such a pity about the nose because the palate is a joy. Tasted November 2010.
