Château Angélus Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

1999 Angélus is a beautiful deep, dark, crimson colour. The nose is very expressive, with chocolate, plum, and morello cherry overtones. The initial impression on the palate is round and velvety. This a thick wine with tannin that is becoming silkier all the time, as well as just the right hint of oak. This vintage is developing in a spectacular way. Age until: 2015

...This wine offers scents of blackberries, licorice, tapenade, and figs...it is ripe, pure, and moderately tannic. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1999 Angelus 750ml
