Luscious. Silky. At its peak. I'd drink this over the next three years.

Easy-going, gentle and rounded-off flavors with red currants, dark plums and oaky barrel additions, and despite its lightness, its direct, ready and positively drinkable.

Oh boy! So gorgeous. A Caitlin Jenner wine, if you get my drift. Feminine with muscles. :)

85/15 Merlot CF on clay soils with some alluvial gravel. L'Evangile sits right between Petrus to the north and Chevalier Blanc to the south. The clay perfume on the nose reminded me of stepping out of the car in Bandol. Elegant blackberry and spice box. A wine to age. Lovely.

Probably over the hill for most but I liked it and thought it to be quite the pleasing wine of elegance and complexity.
40th birthday trip with the guys, what more appropriate than some #birthyear #Pomerol #1977 #levangile
This was pure silk and drank like a good old wine should. Showed the #cabernetfranc side in the aroma and the #Merlot on the palate.
