Angelus 2001


Case Format: 1x150cl

Max score: 98.0

As one of the largest and most lauded Saint-Émilion estates, Angélus creates opulent, perfumed and complex wines laced with silky tannins and elegant fruits. A layered, complex nose, it boasts an abundant flavour profile of red berries and floral notes that are “bursting at the seams”. Despite only comprising a third of its blend, Cabernet Franc takes centre stage, adding a smattering of spice and aromatics to the wine. The remaining Merlot (c.51%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (c.2%) contributes to a traditional Bordeaux blend that is both luscious and well-rounded.



Jane Anson

Easily one of the most impressive Bordeaux 2001s that you can find. Full of liquorice, lashings of textured chocolate shavings, smoked earth and black truffle - powerful, fragrant and intense. Grilled almond smoke on the nose as it opens, a wine that keeps on delivering. Very few bottles of this left at the estate, and it is worth savouring. 100% new oak.

Tasted at Farr Vintners’ vertical from ex-chateau magnum. The Chateau Angelus 2001 has a very fresh, mint-tinged bouquet with fine delineation, with just a touch of dark cherries, Dorset plum and orange peel. Fine delineation and the oak is gradually melting into the fabric of the wine. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly raw entry. Fresh and vibrant, just a little reserve towards the tannic finish, indeed, as it grows into adolescent it is becoming a self-styled “classic” Saint Emilion, less sexy but more cerebral than a couple of years ago. Great backbone here, surfeit with freshness and vitality with a touch of spice and white pepper on the aftertaste. Tasted October 2011.
