Tasting Notes

WA95

This 7,500-case blend of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc is one of the strongest wines of the vintage. A deep blue/purple hue is accompanied by classic aromas of smoky blueberries and blackberries as well as incense and floral notes in the background. A beautiful texture, opulence, flamboyance, and purity characterize this stunningly deep, full-bodied effort, another great success from proprietor Hubert de Bouard.

WSM95

Like the best of the St-Emilions of this vintage, Angélus seems to glow in the glass, the intensity of its color matched by the silken brocade of its tannin. My notes are all about the expression of those tannins-espresso beans, dark chocolate, relentless, aristocratic, too young to touch. The fruit reveals itself in merlot richness and cabernet franc power (a 60-40 blend), unlikely to show more detail before it's ten or 12 years old.

The Winery

l’Angelus

Truly harmonious wines that are arguably the most highly desired out of St. Emilion. The Chateau Angelus family tree spans eight generations and is the result of the passion and commitment of the Bouard de Laforest family. This Bordelais estate is named after an ancient patch of vines in the center of the vineyard where workers could hear the Angelus (or church bells) ring simultaneously from three different churches in the countryside. The southerly exposed estate vineyards contain Merlot and Cabernet Franc- a considerable addition which adds to the brightness of the wines and makes them stylistically more contemporary. Chateau Angelus was promoted to Premier Grand Cur Classe status in 1996 and produces a second wine called Carillon de l’Angelus, of which only 1000 cases are produced annually. Robert Parker awarded the 2009 Chateau Angelus 99 points, and all of the wines appear frequently in the world’s most prestigious auction houses, including the 2012 Sothebys auction where the wines went for top dollar.
