One of the most impressive Pomerols of the vintage, the deep ruby/purple-colored 2002 l’Evangile (75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc) exhibits big, sweet aromas of blackberries, raspberries, and hints of earth as well as truffles. It possesses admirable depth and palate persistence, medium body, outstanding freshness, rich, ripe fruit, good underlying acidity, and a nicely layered finish. I would have expected its nearby neighbor, Cheval Blanc, to perform this well. Kudos to l’Evangile’s manager, Jean-Pascal Vazart, for a commendable job with his first vintage.
