Bordeaux 2020: Chateau Angelus and Chateau Pavie
19 May 2021

Since Stéphanie de Bouard took control at Angelus, we’ve seen a subtle shift in winemaking, resulting in a string of excellent wines. It’s not that Hubert was doing anything wrong, after all, he’s one of the most celebrated winemakers in the world, it’s just his daughter has fine-tuned things, bringing a new level of precision and detail. Angelus possesses a natural power that needs to be controlled. The 2020 is a classic case of less is more; less dense and massive, but more vibrant, more elegant, more ethereal. The new style of Angelus is elevated and refined, fully deserving of its position amongst the Premier Grand Cru Classe ‘A’s of St Emillion. 2020 is amongst their finest wines to date marrying the natural luxuriant, intense fruit with a detail and finesse to the tannic structure – it is a staggeringly beautiful example.

Gerard Perse has released Chateau Pavie onto the market. Unfortunately, we were not able to taste the 2020, however, the critics are unanimous in their praise. James Lawther MW describes it as “One of the best yet”. High praise for a chateau that already boasts five 100 point scores from the Wine Advocate since the turn of the century. It would seem that gentler extractions and more emphasis on precision are the order of the day here too.
