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.

This is another sleeper of the vintage from Hubert de Boüard. The 2006 reminds me somewhat of the 2001, perhaps not quite as lush at this state, but underrated as a vintage at this property. Dense purple, with sweet boysenberry, blueberry and black-raspberry fruit, licorice, chocolate and a touch of barbecue smoke, a bit of graphite also makes an appearance in this full-bodied, opulent wine that seems to be maturing much like the 2001. Drink it over the next 20-25 years.
The 2006 Château Angelus, a blend of 47% Cabernet Franc, 50% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, has a very perfumed bouquet with scents of blueberry, cassis, crushed violets and just a touch of mushroom. This is very generous. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth, slightly toasty entry. The acidity is quite low compared to other 2006 Saint Emilions, but there is harmony here and the tannins seem very fine. There is real density on the finish, although I was just seeking a little more delineation to come through. Give this another two or three years in bottle. Tasted January 2016.
