Tasting Notes L'Evangile 2000

98

This is an absolutely spectacular L’Evangile. It remains to be seen whether 2009 will eclipse this great effort. Largely a Merlot-dominated blend with some Cabernet Franc in it, the greatness of this terroir is exhibited in the complexity of the nose, which offers up hints of subtle chocolate, blueberry, blackberry, truffle, barbecue smoke, and graphite. Dense, rich, and full-bodied, with an opulence and succulence that are prodigious, the tannins are present but extremely sweet, and the wine multi-dimensional and just emerging as a compellingly complex, head-turning beauty. Drink it now and over the next 20-25 years. Kudos to L’Evangile.

Massive grip, very long, a top 2000. I wrote en primeur. Again in September 2003 at Farr's 2000 horizontal: A very similar nose to L'Eglise-Clinet, more backward with a little liquorice. Maybe the nose doesn't quite have the depth of the above. The palate is huge, tannic, and backward with a dense core of spicy blackcurrants at the centre. This will be a long-lived wine. Stunning. Finally in September 2005. A deeper colour than the 1998. A dense, concentrated cedary nose that unfurls with hints of liquorice and pure blackberry, cassis fruit. The palate is strong and burly with a dense, spicy core and high extraction. Very good acidity, firm, with a metallic note on the finish and a pain grille aftertaste. Outstanding wine.
