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.


Winemaker's Notes:

"Polished and direct, with warm raspberry coulis, blueberry preserves and plum flavors pumping along, while a pain d'épices note fills out the finish. There's a loamy echo on the finish that adds depth and length, so this should be putting on weight...91-94" WS 04/12 "Very elegant Angelus with blueberry and chocolate character. Full to medium body, with fine tannins. Lovely and delicious... 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc. 93-94" JS 04/12 "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....92-95" WA 04/12
