Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

A superb effort in this vintage, Angelus's opaque purple-colored 1995 is a massive, powerful, rich offering with plenty of ripe, sweet tannin. The wine's aromatics include scents of Provencal olives, jammy black cherries, blackberries, truffles, and toast. A very full-bodied wine, it is layered, thick, and pure. This is the most concentrated of the 1995 St.-Emilion premier grand crus.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

A stunning red. Dark and inky, with masses of coffee, blackberry, cherry and wild flower aromas. Full-bodied and tannic, with loads of fruit and tons of oak on the long, long finish. Perhaps a bit too much new wood on the finish?

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

Bright dark ruby. Sweet, superripe aromas of raspberry, plum, black cherry, tobacco, toffee and game. Like liquid velvet in the mouth: sweet, voluptuous, seamless. Palate-staining flavors of black cherry, chocolate and smoky oak. Finishes with chewy, toothfurring tannins and great persistence.

Inital nose is barnyard,love it, but after an hour in decanter this wine opens to beautiful blackberry, cassis fruit with a hint of vanilla. Deep purple to the rim, very full bodied, this baby is just now starting to drink at its potential. Huge and concentrated but with very polished tannins and a long velvety finish. The acidity was very refreshing and paired beautifully with grilled lamb. PSome give this 95, but I think it is even a little better!

About This Producer

Chateau Angelus is located just west of the town of St. Emilion and was promoted to Premier Grand Cru Classe status in 1996. Typical blends consist of Merlot and Cabernet Franc which are grown on Angelus's southerly-exposed vineyards. Chateau Angelus also produces a second wine called Carillon de l'Angelus.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend

Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
