Lot #123. l'Evangile 1982

Description: Consists of 5 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: France, Bordeaux, Pomerol.
Score: 98 RP.
A blockbuster, dark plum/garnet-colored wine, the 1982 L’Evangile reveals a decadent, extravagantly rich nose of caramelized fruit, plum, licorice, smoked meats, and toffee. This opulent, full-bodied Pomerol caresses the palate with layers and layers of glycerin and fruit. The tannin is barely noticeable in this massive, rich, gorgeous effort. The complexity of the nose alone is worth a special admission price. It is close to full maturity, and is capable of lasting another 20-25 years. Wine Advocate #183, Jun 2009
Provenance: The Cargaison Cellar
Notes: 2 very top shoulder, 1 top shoulder, 2 nicked capsules, 2 lightly scuffed capsules, lightly bin soiled labels, 3 very lightly wrinkled labels, 2 nicked labels, 1 lightly scuffed label.
