From an assemblage of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc this inky purple wine sports a beautiful sheen. Licorice coffee jammy black and red fruits earth and stone aromas are found with little effort. The full boded rich concentrated wine feels sexy and plush with its cashmere tannins. The long intense balanced finish ends with licorice chocolate and pure black plum liqueur sensations. Hubert de Bouard prefers this to the 2005 which for me remains the benchmark wine for Chateau Angelus. At this point in time I do not agree with Hubert. But it s going to be fun comparing those and other vintages over the next several decades. 96-98 Pts Jeff Leve.


Winemaker's Notes:

"A blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc, the 2010 may not hit the peaks of the extraordinary 2009 or 2005, but it is *another fabulous wine* from proprietor Hubert de Bouard. It boasts an inky/blue/purple color along with abundant aromas of acacia flowers, blueberry liqueur, black raspberries, licorice and subtle toasty oak in the background. A notion of graphite emerges as the wine sits in the glass, which tends to be a characteristic of Angelus. Long, rich, dense and full-bodied with high but well-integrated tannins, it will rival the 1989 and 1990 as well as the 2009 and 2005 as one of the finest wines made at this estate...*the 2010 is a great wine* with a future of at least 30 years!"*Robert Parker Wine Advocate (94-96+ points)**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2013*
