With wonderfully fresh Merlot, a selection of very old Cabernet Franc from clay-limestone soils and gentle extractions during the vinification, a truly great vintage of Château Angélus was made. A deep colour immediately catches the eye. Perfect aromatic purity mingling with black fruit notes offers great charm on the nose. On the palate, a touch of sweetness gives way to elegant tension with velvety, refined tannins. The alcohol (lower than in 2010) and the oak are perfectly integrated. The lingering finish is underpinned by the elegance of the Cabernet Franc and the purity of the fruit, intermixed with delicate hints of spice.

Harvest: 24th September to 11th October
Blend: 65 % Merlot, 35 % Cabernet Franc

Winemaker Notes

Chateau Angelus

by Hubert de Bouard
Magnificent freshness in the Merlot, a selection of very old Cabernet Franc planted on clay-limestone soils and gentle extraction during the vinification have combined to make this vintage a very great Château Angélus. A lovely depth of colour attracts the eye. Perfect aromatic purity (the fruit of precision work on a daily basis), together with notes of black fruit give great charm on the nose. On the palate, a sweet note gives way to elegant tension with refined, velvety tannins. The alcohol (below that of 2010) and the oak are perfectly integrated. The finish is lingering, underpinned by the elegance of the Cabernet Franc, by the purity of the fruit, and accompanied by delicate spicy notes.
