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.
Chateau Angelus 2015
Wine Advocate-Parker :
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!
