Robert Parker 93-95
A blend of 69% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2021 L’Evangile offers up aromas of plums, cherries and wild berries mingled with notions of rose petals, violets, licorice and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied, ample and velvety, with fine concentration and rich, powdery structuring tannins that assert themselves on the finish, this estate’s rather low average vine age meant Evangile didn’t suffer much from coulure this year, and the rainy growing season also spared young Cabernet Franc from hydric stress explaining its historically high percentage in the 2021 blend.
