Château L'Evangile Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$459

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. Robert Parker

this is how to drink bordeaux! two magnums in perfect condition, showing libournais / pomerol on a peak. right bank-ish merlot driven it entertains with juicy blackberry fruit, smoothest tannin structure and an endless finish, lasting minutes long of herbal liquor, cassis, coffee, sweet smoke, graphite and spices. hands down the best way to start the week - even some "i really prefer white"-folks had a grin up to their ears!
