Château L'Evangile Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

$445

The prodigious 2009 l'Evangile may be the greatest wine made at this estate during my 30+ years of tasting Bordeaux...Amazingly, this cuvee is aged in 100% new oak barrels, yet no oak is present in the aromas or flavors. Readers should think of it as a better, richer, fuller, more alcoholic version of the 1982 l'Evangile. Dense, full-bodied, and opaque purple-hued, it boasts an extraordinary bouquet of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, and boysenberries. A blue and black mountain fruit character suggests coolness, but an intensity and voluptuous texture present the paradox of 2009. The wine has all the characteristics of a hot vintage in terms of power, texture, and richness as well as elements of a cool vintage in its precision, elegance, freshness, and vibrancy. Make no mistake about it, this is an enormous wine that is incredible to taste. Frankly, I could have drunk the entire barrel sample if it hadn't been my first appointment of the day...

I opened a 3L of Chateau L'Evangile as a follow up to 65 Unico birth year bottle that we enjoyed. This was legendary beauty. Robert Parker rated 100 and I have to agree. He indicated "The most profound L'Evangile ever made?". I'd have to agree yet again!! Huge mouthfeel especially in light of the very light and playful Unico that we had just enjoyed. Gorgeously inviting Nose which ignited our senses. On the palate it was seamlessly multi layered with dark fruit & a creme Brulé type of caramel finish. Super cool!!! I loved it!!! No rough edges with a marathon finish. Badass in a glass for my badass wife!! Happy birthday babe!!
