Note:

"Deep, dense color with violet reflections. Very expressive nose with black fruit and subtle notes of toasted bread. On the palate the attack is powerful, dense and structured. The medium palate is full-bodied, with a fine and balanced tannic structure. The finish it is full-bodied with superbly ripe tannins, while remaining elegant and refined, thanks to the quality of the grapes from this exceptional vintage.

Merlot 84%, Cabernet Franc 16%

Conditions during 2015 were ideal. After a fairly mild winter, the vine's vegetative cycle normally began in early April. Spring brought good weather with mild temperatures and relatively little rain. Flowering was fast and even, promising a bountiful harvest. The summer was magnificent with temperatures well above the average in July and light rainfall just when it was needed, creating the conditions for the vines to flower. A very hot August was followed by a superb September. Some rain arrived just before the harvest, allowing the grapes to reach a perfect state of ripeness, and making this vintage truly exceptional."

Reviews:

Robert Parker : 97+
" The 2015 L'Evangile is composed of 84% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc and was matured for 18 months in new oak barrels from Tonnellerie des Domaines (their own cooperation). Deep garnet-purple in color, it absolutely leaps from the glass with complex, gregarious notes of blackberry pie, plum preserves, smoked meats/charcuterie, mocha and licorice plus suggestions of cloves, black soil and unsmoked cigars.Full-bodied, rich, opulent and jaw-droppingly sexy, it has beautifully plush yet firm tannins with a lively backbone and a very long, spicy finish."

James Suckling : 100
“Stunning aromas of blackberries, black olives, brown sugar and dried flowers. tar. Full-bodied, dense and layered. Superfine tannins, yet this is muscular and long. An amazing wine reminiscent of the great L'Evangiles of the 1950s. Straight tracks. Goes on and on. Really great wine. Try in 2024. Just a baby.”

Jeb Dunnuck : 99

"In the running for the most opulent, sensationally textured, massive wine in the vintage is the 2015 L'Evangile and if tasting this beauty doesn't make your heart rate increase, I don't know what will. Made from 84% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc brought up in plenty of new oak, its ruby/plum color is followed by an awesome bouquet of blackberry jam, smoked meats, licorice, truffle, and hints of chocolate.Thick, opulent, super ripe, and decadent, with a full-bodied mouthfeel that needs to be tasted to be believed, it still stays balanced and fresh on the palate and is already impossible to resist.It's going to keep for 3+ decades.This is one of those wines I wish every reader could taste!"
