About Chateau Angelus 2015 Premier Grand Cru Classe, Saint Emilion

Since 1989, Chateau Angelus, a Class A Premier Cru, has been considered one of the top estates in the entire Right Bank. Hubert de Bouard, whose family dates back to the 1500's in Bordeaux can be credited with lifting the quality of the wines to their current height. The 94 acre vineyard is planted to 50% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines age in 100% new French oak barrels for 18-24 months. 2015 was a superb vintage on especially on the Right Bank and this wine is very exciting and limited.

James Suckling scored this 99 points saying "This shows the purity of Angelus. I have never tasted a wine from here with such incredible clarity. Full body, full fruit and full beauty. Super silky tannins. A joy to taste. Makes you want to drink it. 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc."

Jeb Dunnuck scored this 97+ saying "A total blockbuster is the 2015 Angelus and it’s reminiscent of a slightly more elegant 2009. Made from 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc brought up in new barrels, this rich, opulent beauty boast killer notes of blackcurrants, blackberry liqueur, truffle, chocolate and scorched earth. With full-bodied richness, building, ripe tannin and a stacked profile on the palate, this hedonistic Bomb of a wine from Hubert de Boüard needs 4-5 years of cellaring and will keep for three decades or more."

The Wine Advocate scored this 97 points and said "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Angélus is a little closed to begin, soon blossoming into a wonderfully fragrant perfume of raspberry preserves, ripe black plums and chocolate-covered cherries with suggestions of Darjeeling tea, candied violets, spice cake and cinnamon stick with a touch of aniseed. Full-bodied, the palate is fabulously opulent, delivering mouth-coating black and red fruit layers with loads of floral sparkles and a seductively velvety texture, finishing with great length and tension. Drink from 2023 - 2050."

Wine Enthusiast scored this 97 points saying "This wine is structured, powerful and ripe but also elegant and stylish. Juicy black fruits combine with a dry, structured core to give the wine both its richness and its future. Powered by its fruit and tannins, it has good aging potential. Best after 2027."

Wine Spectator scored this 96 points saying "Dense, dark and muscular, featuring waves of warmed fig, plum and black currant paste that roll in with warm ganache, baker's chocolate and espresso accents. A huge swath of smoldering tobacco is brewing on the finish, which has a brooding feel, thanks to tannins that hit like a thunderclap at the end. If you've got time to wait... Best from 2028 through 2045."

Decanter Magazine scored this 95 points saying "62% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Franc. Rich and brooding on the nose with a hint of spicy fragrance. Powerful tannic frame but the tannins are fine and polished. Great depth and structure. Suave texture for such a big wine. Balancing freshness on the finish. Will need time."
