Estate Notes

Château Angelus 2010 was purchased in its original wooden case and is another great vintage from Angelus, following on from the sensational 2009 vintage, and it may well end up the equal of (if not surpassing) both 2005 and 2009.

Château Angelus (formerly L'Angelus) is one of the most prestigious producers in the entire Saint-Émilion district – a name synonymous with crafting voluptuous wines.

As a testament to its quality, the 1996 vintage saw its elevation from Grand Cru to Premier Grand Cru (B) status (in the 1955 Saint-Émilion classification: a rare and highly commendable honour only bestowed upon a handful of estates that have made considerable progress since the classification's inception. In 2012 Angelus was upgraded again to Premier Grand Cru Classe (A).

Reviews

"An absolutely spectacular wine from this estate, run with meticulous precision by Hubert de Bouard, the opaque bluish/purple 2010 Angelus offers up a beautifully sweet smorgasbord of aromas ranging from blueberry pie to espresso roast, white chocolate, creme de cassis, licorice, truffle and a touch of lead pencil shavings. There is even a floral underpinning to this extraordinary, highly-scented, full-bodied wine. Rich, layered and built like a skyscraper, this multi-dimensional Angelus has lavish concentration and moderately high tannin, but it is sweet and well-integrated, as is the oak. Just enough acidity provides focus and delineation to this exceptionally well-endowed wine, which should hit its prime in 7-10 years and last 30-40." eRobertParker.com
