Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 109

This brilliant estate, adjacent to La Conseillante, Petrus, and Vieux-Chateau-Certan, has turned in exemplary efforts in 1993-95. One of the vintage's most notable successes, L'Evangile's 1994 possesses a dense, saturated purple color, followed by a gorgeously sweet nose of framboise/cassis, with mineral and licorice notes in the background. This medium to full-bodied wine reveals a seamless, opulent texture, fabulous purity to its layers of fruit, as well as superb extraction and equilibrium. This terrific wine is one of the few 1994s that has most of its tannin concealed by the wine's wealth of fruit. It is a gorgeous L'Evangile.

Bordeaux Book(2003) Author: Robert Parker

One of the vintage's most notable successes, l'Evangile's 1994 has a dense plum/ruby color, a sweet nose of licorice, black raspberry, and currant with a hint of roasted herbs and damp soil. Medium to full-bodied, very opulent, it has considerable richness in the front end and mid-section. Like most of the best 1994s, the one defect is the lack of sweetness and the relatively dry, tannic finish. Nevertheless, this is top-notch stuff from a vintage that provides many good surprises, although the style of the wines tend to be relatively firm, muscular, and structured.

Brilliant garnet hued wine with flat out gorgeous nuances of peanuts, smoke, mint, milk chocolate, and milky raspberry. Lots of grip - moderate tannins and excellent acidity. Fine length. 1994 is a bit of a forgotten vintage but the '94 L'Evangile certainly deserves some attention.
