"The fine wine from Château l'Evangile is described in an old edition of 'Grand vins de Bordeaux' (Dussault Press) as '...full and elegant wines, with an unmistakable finesse and bouquet.' For many fans, the subtle and elegant quality is indeed the mark of this wine. Dense, intense colour with hints of violet. Powerful, lingering, expressive, very ripe, concentrated nose, with notes of Morello cherries and blackcurrants. The attack is dense and concentrated with very ripe, powerful tannins. The palate is mature, rich and smooth with a silky finish that is highlighted by the very high quality tannins." —winemaker

Blend: 87% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc
"The 2013 L'Evangile is one of the more textured, layered wines of the year. Mocha, cloves, plums and black cherries meld together in a wine with considerable richness and vivid, expressive fruit. The 100% new French oak is impeccably integrated for a wine of this age. Raspberry jam, wild flowers and sweet spices linger on the close. This is a terrific showing, especially for the vintage. The 2013 is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, brought in from September 27 to early October." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media (April 2014)
