- Bordeaux, France
This Pomerol powerhouse is the Rothschild's leading estate on the Right Bank and is situated ideally next to Cheval Blanc, and not far from Petrus and Vieux Chateau Certan.
"Deep garnet-brick colored and blended of 72% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc, the nose of the 1998 L'Evangile has the most intensely perfumed scents of potpourri, fallen leaves, Chinese five spice, camphor and new leather over a core of crème de cassis, prunes, star anise, dusty soil and tobacco with wafts of dried lavender and cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied, rich and decadent in the mouth, it has layer upon layer of spice and savory notions with a plush frame and refreshing lift on the finish." 95 pts, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, WA (May 2018)
"So much black truffle in the aroma here with blackberry and blueberry character, too. Full body, solid and stalwart. The layers of velvety tannins are impressive. I love the balance and energy to this. Underlines the greatness of 1998 for Pomerol and harks back to 1950. Just starting to be drinkable now. 98 pts, James Suckling (March 2018)
