Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

Elegant aromas of dark chocolate, berries, spices and flowers. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Like cashmere. Impressive effort from Angelus, considering part of its crop was hailed. 4,165 cases made.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

(75-$100) Red-ruby. Evolving aromas of roasted red fruits, mocha, cedar and underbrush. Sweet, pliant and nicely fresh in the mouth, with a leathery nuance. Plenty of flavor and shape here. Finishes with strong but fine, horizontal tannins and good grip.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 88

Forced to harvest early due to hail, Angelus, surprisingly, has turned out a very good 1999. This wine offers scents of blackberries, licorice, tapenade, and figs. It lacks the length possessed by the great Angelus vintages such as 2000, 1998, 1990, and 1989, but it is ripe, pure, and moderately tannic. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

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.
