品酒筆記:

(2014 - RP:93)
這年份的Angelus在桶內陳年過程,及在樽內,已展現出氣度。同時此酒流露出極吸引的黑莓,及雲呢拿香氣,當中還帶有橡木桶的味道。中度酒體而單寧細緻,酸度清脆,簡潔而餘韻悠長,亦有黑果香氣。


Founded in 1782, Chateau Angelus is the work of a written passion for eight generations of the family Bouard Laforest. The Angelus style is the marriage of a bold vines and an exceptional terroir. It is this unique character born from the south coast of Saint-Emilion and its high proportion of Cabernet Franc that we like to find over the vintages: richness, density, smoothness, elegance, race, purity and freshness.

Tasting Notes:

(2012 - RP:94)
A blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc.
The 2012 Angelus has a forward and generous bouquet of mulberry, boysenberry, orange rind and slithers of tangerine. It is undoubtedly detailed and energetic, a subtle marine scent surfacing with continued aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded and supple tannin, slightly honeyed in texture yet with a keen line of acidity running through it.

(2014 - RP:93)
A blend of 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Merlot.
The 2014 Angelus has developed with some panache during its barrel maturation and now in bottle, it conveys attractive blackberry, briary and vanilla pod aromas, the oak neatly integrated. It is not the most powerful bouquet that Hubert de Boüard de Laforest has ever overseen, though it offers precision and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a crisp line of acidity, quite compact and linear in the mouth with a subtle oyster-shell note that tinctures the black fruit towards the persistent finish.

(2015 - RP:97)
A blend of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc.
The 2015 Angelus reveals a deep garnet-purple color and fragrant aromas of crushed red currants, warm plums and pencil shavings with hints of incense, sage, violets and tobacco. Full-bodied, very fine and intense yet exquisitely delicate with wonderful freshness, it has ripe yet firm, very finely grained tannins and an epically long, perfumed finish. With bags of perfume and a captivating plushness, this Angelus is a real head-turner!

(2018 - RP:97+)
The 2018 Angélus is blended of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc, aged mainly in oak barriques, 100% new, plus two new foudres.
Deep garnet-purple in color, it struts flamboyantly out of the glass with stylish scents of black raspberries, boysenberries and Black Forest cake, plus nuances of rose oil, forest floor, dusty soil and cinnamon toast with a hint of cedar chest. The medium to full-bodied palate is carrying a little new oak at this youthful stage, framing the generous red and black fruits along with ripe, plush grape-skin tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and spicy.
Give it 5-6 years in cellar for everything to marry, then drink it over the next 20+ years.
