2010 Angelus Tasting Notes show Cashmere Tannins, Intensity


2010 Chateau Angelus St. Emilion Bordeaux wine review, tasting note and ratings.

2010 Angelus 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 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


    • Laurent… I am with you 100% on 2010 Angelus. I scored it even higher than you did! I am glad you liked it as well. The de BOuards are doing a great job with the property.
