International Wine Cellarage (IWC) Review

IWC 95
Deep red. Multidimensional nose melds red berry liqueur, milk chocolate, underbrush, truffle and smoke; seemed to shut down in the glass. Lush, silky and sweet, with sneaky ripe acidity giving the flavors clarity and penetration. Still a bit youthfully tight on the back end, but vinous and long. Drink now through 2015.

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 95
L'Evangile's 1985 remains relatively unevolved and youthful. The dark ruby color exhibits no signs of age, and the hugely complex, multi-dimensional bouquet of blackcurrants, raspberries, exotic spices and oak requires coaxing from the glass. Rich, medium to full-bodied, super-concentrated, well-balanced, and tannic, this wine continues to evolve more slowly than other 1985s. Anticipated maturity: 1994-2015.-Robert Parker

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 92
Rich yet elegant with very deep, concentrated black currant and herb flavors and smoky tannins; long-term potential.
