2019 Châteaux L'Evangile

 

"From the very first moment your nose approaches the glass you know something special is happening. Have I tasted a better l'Evangile? Certainly not at this stage, and one of the very few wines in 2019 that I can say without question approaches a perfect score..." (99 points)  - Jane Anson, writing on 2019 L'Evangile 

Continuing the whirlwind pace of this en primeur campaign, a near-perfect scoring L'Evangile (£876 IB per six) is released this morning. 

Made by the winemaking team at Lafite-Rothschild, led by Saskia Rothschild and Jean-Guillaume, L'Evangile will grab headlines, with a huge 99 point score from Decanter's Jane Anson, who also infers that, if she were ever to award 100 points based on en primeur tastings (which she does not), then this would be a candidate. 

Priced 19% below the 2018 and with such a score, L'Evangile will be in extremely high demand.  A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the vines are on the same soils as Petrus and Cheval Blanc, both of which border the estate.

 

Offered En Primeur, landing Spring 2022.

"From the very first moment your nose approaches the glass you know something special is happening. Have I tasted a better l'Evangile? Certainly not at this stage, and one of the very few wines in 2019 that I can say without question approaches a perfect score. I don't give 100s at En Primeur but this is off the scale delicious, and I already can't wait to taste it in bottle.  99 Points." Jane Anson, Decanter Magazine
