Château Angélus Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 1970

Winemaker's Notes:

No review available. Regarding the 1970 vintage, Clive Coates (The Wines of Bordeaux) writes the following: The 1970s have never gone through an awkward adolescent phase... they have always been accessible, generous and welcoming. They also seemed to get better and better, to have more depth, concentration and dimension as time progressed.
