100 THE WINEADVOCATE: An astonishing effort from the Rothschild family, the 2009 l’Evangile may be the reference point offering from this estate for decades to come. A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% new oak, with 15% natural alcohol, it exhibits a sumptuous bouquet of caramels, black raspberry liqueur, blackberries, violets, graphite and truffles. Thick, viscous flavors are reminiscent of such super-ripe vintages as 1982, 1959, 1949 and 1947. The striking aromatics, massive, full-bodied mouthfeel and multilayered palate that resembles a skyscraper in the mouth offer an abject lesson in great winemaking, extraordinary terroir, and the ability to combine power with precision, elegance and freshness. This is unquestionably a huge wine, but it also possesses mindboggling complexity and finesse. Because of its sheer extract and velvety personality, it will be drinkable in 4-5 years, and will keep for four decades or more where well-stored. The most profound L’Evangile ever made?" 100 THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "There is an explosive nose of violets, truffle, plum liqueur and cherries with hints of dark chocolate in the end note. The wine is full bodied, rich and concentrated. There is an incredible level of density, yet the wine is light on its feet, due to the freshness. The purity of fruit is impressive, but it´s the decadent, sensuous, velvet textures that set this apart from other wines. OK, so it´s 10am in the morning, but there is no way I am going to spit this out. Stunning! Picking took place from September 11 to October 7, which is one of the longer harvests in the history of the estate.. The wine was made from a blend of 95% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. Only 77% of the crop went into the Grand Vin." 99 JAMES SUCKLING: "A wine that impresses you, with its subtlety and strength. Every molecule of the tannins and fruit seems to be almost perfectly in line. Enticing dark fruits and milk chocolate. The delicate, yet intense flavors go on for minutes. My palate is so caressed. Such class here. Might end up being better than the perfect 2005. Try after 2020." 19 RENÈ GABRIEL´S BX TOTAL: "Merlot 95%, Cabernet Franc 5%. Samtenes, dichtes, süsses, üppiges, cremiges Bukett mit Haselnusscreme, Pralinen, Tabak, Minze. Samtener, voller, ausgewogener, dichter Gaumen mit kräftiger, süsser Frucht, viel gutem Tannin, kräftiger, dunkler Aromatik mit Trüffel, Tabak. Sehr langer, voller Abgang mit guten Rückaromen 19/20 2016 - 2035" -A.Kunz. 97 WINESPECTATOR: "This takes a broader approach, with almost stolid tobacco and charcoal structure guarding the core of black currant, roasted fig and blackberry confiture flavors. Long and very fleshy, offering ample toast and searing singed iron notes, but terrific integration. Merlot in Cabernet clothing, with a long life ahead. Best from 2018 through 2035." 18 JANCIS ROBINSON: "39 hl/ha. 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc. Just a bit deeper than the Blason. Silky and subtle on the nose. Great richness and intensity. Firm line through it. Really up there. Great structure. Very firm and dry on the finish but not drying, Much more than just ripeness. Great density. Exotic and racy. Very long." 94+ ANTONIO GALLONI: "Deep inky-ruby. A fresh violet topnote lifts and complicates aromas of dark plum and cassis on the enticing nose. Quite pure in the mouth, with mineral-driven flavors of dark berries, creamy milk chocolate and smoky plum. Lively framing acidity extends the wine´s flavors impressively through a long finish. This has lost some baby fat but picked up more gracefulness since I tried it in the spring of 2010.""
