Critical Acclaim

James Suckling - 93 points

A very rich array of darker berries and plums on the nose with some sous-bois notes. There’s such attractively intense chocolate and dark-cherry flavors on the palate. Super fine tannins. Some baking spices, too. Very integrated and balanced with sustained freshness and a long finish. Second wine of Chateau L’Evangile.

Jeb Dunnuck - 91 points

The 2017 Chateau L'Evangile Blason De L'Evangile is a blend of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc, aged in 14 months in used barrels. Its deep ruby color is followed by a ripe, complex red that has lots of Cabernet Franc assorted red and black fruits, leafy herbs, lead pencil, tobacco, and cedar aromas and flavors. With an almost Left Bank style, it's medium-bodied, has silky tannins, beautiful elegance, and a great finish.

Decanter - 90 points

The Blason is a 50/50 blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, taking a month, from 4 September to 3 October, to pick due to 50% of the vines being affected by frost, which cut yields and delayed ripening - the optical sorter came in useful to identify the best bunches. This has good freshness and a sense of energy, with bright cherry fruits. The yield for the frosted vines was down to 4hl/ha, and on the non-frosted vines it was 40hl/ha, giving a final yield of 21hl/ha.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 90 points

Composed of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Blason de l'Evangile features expressive notes of crushed black cherries, mulberries and plum preserves with touches of kirsch, dark chocolate, lavender and cloves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers great density and loads of floral sparks among the dark fruits, framed by fine-grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and fragrant.
