"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. "

"Virtually every estate in this sector of Pomerol (the plateau adjacent to St.-Emilion) enjoyed a terrific 2006 vintage, so it is not surprising that the Rothschild-owned l’Evangile is a knock-out. Yields were a low 33 hectoliters per hectare, and 70% of the crop made it into the grand vin. The alcohol level of 14% is essentially equivalent to that of the 2005. A blend of 86% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Franc harvested between September 13-29, it displays a deep ruby/purple color in addition to a sweet bouquet of chocolate, black currants, cherries, licorice, and incense. Velvety tannins, seemingly low acidity, but high concentration and richness make for a stunning wine. This beauty will be ready to drink in 3-5 years, and should keep for 20-25 years."
