Tasting Notes

Vinous 96

The 2021 L Evangile is one of the triumphs of the year, especially considering L’Evangile is now farmed biodynamically. Sharply reduced yields 20 hectoliters-per-hectare versus upper 30s for the rest of the appellation produced a deeply sensual wine. The 2021 spent 18 months in barrel, 40% new (significantly lower than in the past), with 15% of the wine aged in terra cotta. Those are only details though. What is most encouraging about L’Evangile is how far the property has come in the last few years. Superb. The 2021 L’Evangile is a model of contemporary excellence. It marries classicism with modern approaches to farming and winemaking. [Antonio Galloni, 27/02/2024]

Anticipated maturity: 2031-2061

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. [William Kelley, 29/04/2022]
