Angelus 2007

Angelus 2007

Region: Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux

Blend: 62% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Franc



Chateau Angelus 2007, named "LE CHARME" by the Angelus team for its charm, exhibits a deep ruby color and a complex aroma of black fruit, tobacco, and spice. Despite a challenging growing season due to poor weather conditions in the early summer, the winemakers closely monitored the vines in July and August, making adjustments as needed to ensure optimal growth. Fortunately, the weather improved in September, providing excellent ripening conditions for the grapes. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and rich, with firm tannins and a long finish, showcasing the potential of the terroir and winemaking expertise. With its balance of power and finesse, Chateau Angelus 2007 can be enjoyed now or cellared for several years to come, while its beautiful fruity aromas with hints of minerals and fresh and silky texture are complemented by mature tannins, creating a long and pure finish.

"Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Angelus has a really quite wonderful bouquet with dark cherries, crushed strawberry, hints of orange blossom and cedar that contain much more energy than many of its peers. The palate is very crisp and nicely structured on the entry. The acidity is very well judged, and there is a sense of effortless charm in the silky smooth, lightly spiced finish. Everything here is just ticking along nicely. Excellent. Tasted February 2017."

"Good deep ruby-red. Spicy aromas of blueberry, licorice and bitter chocolate. Sweet, lush and deep but quite suave, with lovely lift to the cabernet franc-driven violet, licorice and peppery flavors. Firmly structured and long on the aftertaste. This already shows good mid-palate fat but really needs at least a few years to expand."
