Tasting Note:

88.8% Merlot and 11.2% Cabernet Franc. A candidate for wine of the vintage; the Evangile 2010 stands out amongst some stiff competition. Chateau Lafite have been exploiting this fabulous terroir (between Cheval Blanc and Petrus) since 1990 with stunning results. It is hard to say which of the 2005, the 2009 or the 2010 will be best - all are magnificent in their own right. The 2010 displays a tremendous bouquet of cut flowers, vanilla, fine herbs, graphite, griotte cherry, blueberries, blood oranges, stones and cherry blossom. This is so composed with assured notes of cassis, bright red berries, blue fruit and liquid minerals. Multilayered, sumptuous and refined; this is decadent but in no way tarty. An effortless, seamless Evangile.
