Angelus St. Emilion 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

* *_2011 Bordeaux Futures. Delivery due autumn 2014._*"A *great success* for proprietor Hubert de Bouard, the 2011 Angelus came in at 14.5% natural alcohol (keep in mind that this is supposedly a challenging vintage – and it was), and 75% of the production made it into the top label. The remainder was declassified into a second label or was sold off in bulk. Yields were a low 30 hectoliters per hectare, and the final blend was 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc. The color is a typical dense blue/purple, and the nose offers up wonderful notes of black raspberries, blueberries, flowers, vanillin and spice box. With authority, velvety tannin, good extract and glycerin, this *rich, pure, beautifully textured* St.-Emilion should drink well for 20+ years." --Robert Parker*Robert Parker rating: (92-95 pts.)** *_We'll notify on arrival, autumn 2014._*

50% merlot 47% cabernet franc and 3% cabernet sauvignon. From a 26-hectare parcel on the lower slopes of the south-facing St. Emilion cote soils vary from top to bottom but are largely clay and limestone. Average vine age is over 30 years. Aged 18-24 months in 100% new oak. Dark purplish red at core and rim. A rich gamey spice and tea leaf nose merges with tobacco crushed stones and bounteous red fruit on the back end. The palate is extremely full-bodied with mammoth tannins and high toned acidity yet the wine is well-integrated. This wine will need 5-8 years to come around and can age for another 10. Drink 2017-2030. Jeff Loo.
