Tasting Notes

Made from 60 percent Merlot and 40 percent Cabernet Franc, Chateau Angelus 2009 is on absolutely top form - Its gives the classic 2009 vintage characteristic of sumptuous, soft, rounded fruits hiding a structure of powerful, full tannins - There are lovely exotic spice notes to this wine that mingle with the plum, cherry and blueberry fruits - A fine Angelus that should be tucked away for at least 5 years before opening, then enjoyed over the next 20+. James Griswood - Wine Buyer

Expert Opinion

What our expert says

17/20 Jancis Robinson

In the press...

A candidate for one of the finest Angelus produced to date (and there have been many, including 1989, 1990, 2000 and 2005), this blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc was fashioned from tiny yields of 20 hectoliters per hectare - It boasts a black/purple color along with a gorgeous perfume of blueberry liqueur, spring flowers and graphite - In the mouth, notes of incense and cassis also emerge from this velvety-textured, full-bodied, intensely concentrated 2009 - With silky tannins, low acidity and spectacular purity, texture and depth, it is already approachable (although I’m sure proprietor Hubert de Bouard would think drinking it now is akin to infanticide), but should keep for 20-30+ years.

Regional info

St. Emilion is on the right bank of the Gironde. It is one of Bordeaux's largest producing appellations, producing more wine than much of the left bank put together! St Emilion itself is a beautiful, World Heritage Site town, perched on top of a steep limestone and clay escarpment where most of the area's best vineyards are also located. The soils here usually have a higher proportion of clay - something which helps explain why the wines typically are made more from Merlot and Cabernet Franc than the Cabernet Sauvignon wines of the Medoc. However, as noted above, Chateau Figeac is a famous exception to this rule The classification system of St. Emilion is notoriously complex and often controversial. The very best wines are classed either as "St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé" or "St Emilion Grand Cru Classé". Don't confuse the latter with the lesser "St Emilion Grand Cru"
