93 points James Suckling: "There’s pretty decadence and richness to the second wine of L’Evangile with chocolate, meat and spicy character. Very deep sweetness of fruit. Medium body, ripe and round tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink after 2023, but already delicious. (2/3/19)"
92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2016 Blason de L'Évangile is bold and racy, with remarkable depth for a second wine. Supple, fruit and easygoing, the 2016 will give readers immense pleasure over the next handful of years. Floral notes and red berry fruit carry the Blason nicely. Blason is built on a core of young-vine Merlot, with 26% Cabernet Franc in the blend. The 2016 spent 14 months in once-used barrels. Drink: 2018-2026. (Jan 2019)"
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$75 list] This perfumed wine holds attractive Cabernet Franc that adds structure to the Merlot. Rich with tannins and full of juicy fruit, the wine is already soft and open. It has fruitiness as well as a structure that will allow it to age over the medium term. Drink from 2022. Alcohol 14%. (May 2019)"
