Something about Chateau Angelus
Chateau Angelus, a Saint Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé A, was given its name because all three Angelus bells from the surrounding village churches can be heard ringing in the vineyards. Due to their ideal location Angelus and its second wine, the Carillion of Angelus, are known to be a perfect expression of the marriage between Cabernet Franc and Merlot. A silky wine with a high level of ripeness, Angelus gives forth a surprising fresh character with its flavours dominated by flowers, red fruit, vanilla and liquorice.

Another great showing for a Right Bank wine, the 1998 Angelus shows a saturated opaque, plum/purple color and a beautiful fragrance of blueberry and black raspberries with licorice, asphalt, truffle and a touch of white chocolate. Beautiful texture, full-bodied opulence, striking purity and overall equilibrium make for a stunning wine that is just entering its plateau of full maturity. Drink it over the next 20 years.
The 1998 Angélus, a blend of 40% Cabernet Franc and 60% Merlot, is deep garnet colored with a touch of brick. The nose is completely...WOW! It has an incredible array of smoked meats, incense, cigar box and dusty earth notions over a core of baked cherries, dried mulberries, preserved plums and dried roses with wafts of lavender, menthol and new leather. The palate is medium to full-bodied, rich, intense and packed with black fruit preserves accented by complex savory and earth-inspired flavors, supported by wonderful freshness, textured by plush tannins and finishing with fantastic tension. This still has loads of life—25+ more years!
Very, very deep healthy crimson. Rich, energetic layered nose. Certainly not classic but well balanced and constructed even if it seems to bear little relationship to the St Emilion archetype. Very chewy drying tannins on the finish. Very odd – young Font de Michelle Ch(?! ) Second bottle definitely corked.
