Peter Maude Fine Wines

2019, Château L'Évangile, POMEROL

$414
This Chateau is situated in a prime position on the Pomerol plateau between Petrus, La Conseillante and Cheval Blanc. The wines here are always smooth and seductive and are made by the team from Chateau Lafite.

Have I tasted a better l'Evangile? Certainly not at this stage, and one of the very few wines in 2019 that I can say without question approaches a perfect score. I don't give 100s at En Primeur but this is off the scale delicious, and I already can't wait to taste it in bottle. 98-100 Jane Anson, Decanter

Medium to full-bodied, the palate is wonderfully concentrated with seductive layers of exotic spice-laced black fruit preserves and a velvety texture, finishing long and with just enough freshness. Tantalizingly moreish! 96-98 Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate.

Lots of black-olive, crushed-berry and wet-earth aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, yet polished with a very fine, velvety texture from the tannins. It’s long and structured with a blue-fruit and stone undertone to the palate. Some sage, too. More balanced than in the past. Extremely persistent on the palate. 97-98 James Suckling
