  • Parker : 95-97
  • J. Robinson : 17,5
2015 was a blessed, dreamt-of year, with favourable weather conditions from spring to harvest (harvests from September 22 to october 14). This year, 2015 Angelus wine is made with 62% of Merlot and 38% of Cabernet Franc. This first classified growth "A" of Saint-Emilion appellation has a dense and deep colour. The expression of black fruits is remarkable in its purity and precision. The initial taste is smooth and velvety. The mid-palate builds up on tasting, highlighting the tight and well-defined tannins. Beyond this fine basis, it is a pleasure, a charm, factors that characterise this vintage. The end of the palate is rich, with a spicy finish and the usual freshness of great vintages of Angelus.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Angelus is a blend of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc, picked from 22 September finishing on 14 October. We found a nice homogeneity with the Merlot lots, I was told when I visited. The old Cabernet Franc was very nice, but the younger vines were blended into the second label. This year, it is especially the Merlot that lends a lot of harmony to the wine. This year, the Merlot have some of the qualities of the Cabernet Franc, the precision and freshness. They give the generosity and sweetness. The wine was aged in 100% new oak at 11 degrees Celsius so they could add less sulfur to keep the freshness of the aromas and maintain the elegance of the wine. It offers a complex array of aromas such as black cherry, camphor, oyster shells and Japanese nori, beautifully defined and very focused. The palate is medium-bodied but powerful with layer of svelte tannins and a keen thread of acidity; layers of black fruit laced with spices, baking powder, mint and white pepper. It feels long in the mouth, insistently clinging for a minute after the wine has departed. Oh là là. This is a sexy, but compelling Angelus, fit for 007 and wine-lovers everywhere.
