Wine Critic Reviews:

...The palate is very well balanced and refined. There is a sense of harmony to this L'Evangile that surpasses both the 1982 and 1990. It glides across the mouth, harmonious and silky smooth with a ferrous finish that begs another sip. This was the finest L'Evangile from this era and it continues to offer immense pleasure.... eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

Sokolin 1989 L'Evangile Tasting Notes:

When we talk about first-class wines, there's not much we need to say to convince you to get your own bottle as soon as possible. Take one look at it and let it speak for itself. The mere fact that it belongs to the Saint Emilion Grand Cru wines should be enough - it's like a secret club reserved only for those who truly deserve to be a part of it.

The 1989 L'Arrosee not only deserves it, but it could reinvent the club completely. Consistently spectacular, these wines have been among the top ones in the world for the last 20 years. They're well-regarded for their complexity and the combination of powerful body and multiple layers that reveal one after another with extraordinary flavors of plum, strawberries, and currant hidden among the gorgeous, firm tannins. On the nose, it beams with lovely cherries with some earthy and oaky tones.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer L'Evangile: A seasoned winery in the glorious Bordeaux sub-region of Pomerol, Chateau L'evangile produces some of the most opulent, alluring reds in the world. Chateau L'evangile's full-bodied, thunderous wines are a sight to behold. They boast exceptional intensity and a level of barely-subdued aggression that pushes the flavor profile to its limits. As a result, every flavor feels adequately represented and powerful, and you can spend many days (and bottles) getting lost in the intricacies and nuances. Black cherries are the centerpiece of the show, but a tasty helpful of raspberry tart provides some welcome depth and character to the experience. More subtle flavors like espresso, rose petal and spice slowly inch their way in, much to the pleasure of your tastebuds.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux Red: Picture in your mind a combination of cedar, lead pencil, blackcurrant, plum and mineral aromatics, and texture that caresses your palate like a playful lover. The experience is thrilling from the first whiff to the final seconds of a tannic, generous finish - that is what you'll get from a Bordeaux Red
Varietal Bordeaux Blend: Since its birth in France, the art of Bordeaux-inspired blends has been brought to regions like California, and Washington, where New World visionaries add their own unique spin to the formula, creating mouth-watering tributes to Bordeaux's viticultural greatness. Today, with a compelling cultural mixture, sampling Bordeaux blends is more excited than ever.
