Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate – 95/100
The 2020 L’Evangile was picked quite early, as the estate’s rather young vines were suffering in the dry conditions, and the decision appears to have been judicious, as the wine has turned out very well. Wafting from the glass with aromas of dark berries, plums, vine smoke and violets, it’s medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered, with velvety tannins and an elegant, harmonious profile that avoids any excess.
Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 96/100
The 2020 L’Évangile is gorgeous. Rich, creamy and expansive in feel, the
2020 is a wine of succulence and textural richness. Black cherry, mocha,
espresso, cloves, leather and licorice all meld together. Malolactic
fermentation in barrel helps give L’Évangile its sumptuous, creamy
personality. The 2020 spent 15 months in barrel, 50% new, with 10% of the
wine aged in amphora. The 2020 is a gorgeous wine that is also a wine of
transition, as so many things are being looked at with a fresh eye at the
estate these days.
