The 2006 Chateau l'Evangile reveals a deep hue, with delectable, expressive and pleasantly bursting fresh aromas. The nose exudes fresh currant and pureed raspberry. The swirl brings out a whole new universe with spices, fiery notes coated with black truffles: a distinctive mark of aged Pomerol wines. The palate reveals the same aromas. This offering presents incredible vigor and strength while boasting finesse. The finish attests to outstanding ageing potential.
The sexy, dark ruby/purple-tinged 2006 l'Evangile achieved 14% natural alcohol, as high as any of the great vintages at this estate. Abundant amounts of dark raspberry and black cherry fruit intertwined with sweet plums and hints of figs as well as spring flowers jump from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, fleshy, supple-textured, silky wine. Drink it now or cellar it for 15-20 years.
