About Chateau Angelus
From the vineyards at Chateau Angelus, one can hear the smiling, Angelus bells of three surrounding churches, and since 1985, it certainly seems like someone, or something, has been smiling down on this magnificent terroir.

Bright ruby-purple color. Sweet oak-spiced aromas of dark berries, mocha and cola, with a floral note gaining strength with air. Supple and expansive on entry, then rising tannins give the mid-palate a serious brooding quality, but there's plenty of intense cassis and red cherry flavor to support the tannins. Closes flinty and long, with a persistent chocolate quality. I really like the way this powerful wine remains graceful and refined; I hope Hubert de Bouard tries scaling back on the extraction a little, because when he does wines like this one, they are real beauts. A very good showing for 2011.
