Producer Notes


The warm spring was followed by very nice weather in July and quite a cool August. These conditions gave way to ripe grapes with lots of freshness. At the beginning of September the sun came back in full strength offering a perfect finish to the phenolic maturity.

A dense colour and a nose with notes of raspberry and fresh blackcurrant. Spicy, roasted and truffle aromas follow on the attack. Despite a powerful first impression, the elegant tannins bring plenty of finesse and the finish is silky and unctuous.

Robert Parker: 93/100


"93 out of 100....The sexy, dark ruby/purple-tinged 2006 l'Evangile achieved 14% natural alcohol, as high as any of the great vintages at this estate. Abundant amounts of dark raspberry and black cherry fruit intertwined with sweet plums and hints of figs as well as spring flowers jump from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, fleshy, supple-textured, silky wine. Drink it now or cellar it for 15-20 years."

Wine Spectator: 91/100


"Very silky and caressing on the palate, with a full body and lots of chocolate, coffee and berry character. Refined and elegant, with a long finish. Could use a bit more on the finish." - WS "The sexy, dark ruby/purple-tinged 2006 l'Evangile achieved 14% natural alcohol, as high as any of the great vintages at this estate.
