And they're off!

And they're off!
It’s so early it seems like a false start, but Chateau Angelus has become the first major release of the 2018 campaign. As the front runner, Angelus is claiming the spotlight, even if some spectators still aren’t even in the stands yet. And if that weren’t enough of a shock, the 2018 is released on to the market at 1530GBP per 6; 10% less than the 2017. This is welcome news from one of St Emilion’s Premier Grand Cru Classé (A) vineyards.

James Suckling is certainly enthusiastic about Chateau Angelus’ 2018, awarding it a colossal 99-100/100. We admire the direction Stéphanie de Boüard-Rivoal is taking this Chateau. There’s far more freshness and verve; recent wines have more intensity and lift and the tannic profiles are much more refined. This is a mighty impressive wine with a bright future ahead.

“This shows beautifully sensibility of generous fruit and soft and velvety tannins with an undertone of chocolate and cedar. Full-bodied, pure and supple with a direct delivery of vibrant fruit and real terroir expression. Savory at the end with hazelnut and crunchy-seed flavors. Reality check here. Incredible fruit quality.” James Suckling.
