2011 Chateau L’Evangile
Nice intense soft merlot colour. Bright intense merlot nose, balsamic reduction and black cherries, some dark pomegranate, very slightly spicy but lots of fruit. Intense supple yet firm and structured, nice clean finish, good fruit concentration but not heavy, in fact quite fresh. Some very subtle savoury notes coming from the barrel, as well as a crunchy texture. Very tightly wound, needs a few more years to open up.
