2019 Château Angelus, Grand Cru Classé Saint-Émilion is released.
Château Angélus is a Saint-Émilion Premier Grand Cru Classé A that was founded in 1782 by Jean de Boüard de Laforest, a King’s bodyguard. Since 1985 Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, the seventh generation, is in charge of the domain alongside his cousin Jean-Bernard Grenie. The estate has the particularity to be located in a natural amphitheatre, overlooked by three churches which angelus bells’ sound is amplified when ringing.
An extremely refined and sharpened Angelus with super fine tannins and sweet ripe fruit in the center palate. It’s full-bodied, yet tight and so very polished. Silky. Very subtle. Bright blue fruit, black fruit and stones. Supple and minerally. 60% merlot and 40% cabernet franc. – 98-99 Points, James Suckling
