Château L'Evangile 2011

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  583633

A dark, grippy, structured version, with a strong charcoal spine running through the core of dark fig, steeped plum and black currant fruit. Loam and bittersweet cocoa notes check in on the finish, endowed with ample buried acidity. Should stretch out pleasantly, but this will need a little more time than most other 2011 Pomerols to round into form. Best from 2017 through 2027. Score - 93. (James Molesworth,, March 31, 2014)
