Evangile has some of the same iron-clay soils as Pétrus, but also 25% gravel. The Cabernet Franc buttresses the ripe, late-harvested Merlot. The wine is super-ripe, the palate dense and powerful. The tannins, not acidity, give texture and bite. The wine is muscular but not on steroids; it is in proportion.

James Suckling

A pure, creamy and well-structured yet very fine Evangile. Long and caressing. Very fine tannins. Lots of fresh dark fruit and savory, mineral character. Understated and classy. 69% merlot, 30% cabernet franc and 1% cabernet sauvignon.
