The vintage has a very deep purple color, and an expressive bouquet. The palate is firm and tannic. Very elegant. A balanced and harmonious vintage that will age magnificently.

Wine AdvocateThe 1996 l'Evangile will undoubtedly be a controversial wine. The wine gives the impression of being over-extracted in its dark ruby/purple color and notes of prunes, raisins, Chinese black tea, blackberries, and cherry liqueur. It is rich and powerful, as well as tannic and disjointed, but medium to full-bodied, with excellent richness, and a long, over-ripe finish. It may take a few years to round into shape, but this could turn out to be an outstanding wine. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2016.

Wine SpectatorAromas of chocolate, blackberry and spices follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a long chewy finish. Extremely well done for the vintage.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now.

James Suckling, 2007
