2023 Chateau L'Evangile

A superb new release today, the 2023 vintage of Pomerol’s Chateau l’Evangile. Under the same ownership as the mighty First Growth Chateau Lafite, L’Evangile has benefitted from a huge wave of inward investment and no expense is spared in making the very best wine possible. Despite this, it remains a bit of a hidden gem, in Jane Anson’s words, “an insider’s Pomerol… turning out some of its most skilful and impactful wines”.

In 2023, it is excellent with both Neal Martin and Antonio Galloni awarding 94-96 points from barrel. For Neal Martin, it is “a lovely L’Évangile that deserves five or six years in bottle” and “will be worth the wait”Antonio Galloni calls it “sensual and plush in the glass” with “an explosive, deep finish that is quite compelling”

94-96 points Neal Martin
The 2023 L’Évangile was picked from September 4 to 28 at 42hL/ha, which is the highest for many years. Matured in 50% new oak (including 15 foudres) and 8% in amphoras (my sample only from used barrels), this has a very floral and precise bouquet with dark red fruit, blueberry, hints of blood orange and light sous-bois scents. It’s very L’Evangile. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannins. Crisp and precise, there’s fine tension toward the finish with a lingering black pepper note. This is a lovely L’Évangile that deserves five or six years in bottle. It will be worth the wait. (2024) Drink 2029-2055

94-96 points Antonio Galloni
The 2023 L’Évangile is sensual and plush in the glass. Silky, refined tannins wrap around a core of dark-toned fruit, spice, mocha, leather and dried flowers. This opens nicely, leading to an explosive, deep finish that is quite compelling. Élevage is 50% new oak, 27% once-used barrels, 15% 26hL cask and 8% amphora. It’s another fine effort from the team led by Technical Director Juliette Couderc. (2024)
