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.
