Chateau Angelus 2014, nicknamed "L'INDIEN" after the Indian summer that provided optimal ripening conditions for the grapes during the challenging harvest season, showcases a deep garnet color and a complex aroma of black fruit, licorice, and spice. The wine's velvety tannins and long finish create a rich and full-bodied palate. Despite the uneven weather conditions, the winemakers were able to produce a wine of excellent quality, earning the nickname "L'INDIEN" as a tribute to the unique conditions of the vintage.

"Medium to deep garnet in color, the 2014 Angélus needs a fair bit of coaxing to begin to reveal very pretty aromas of lilacs, kirsch, redcurrant jelly and Black Forest cake plus nuances of graphite and menthol. The palate is delicately intense with soft spoken floral and earth notes complimenting the black fruits, supported by ripe, rounded tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long with compelling restraint. Sporting a good amount of tertiary nuances, it can be enjoyed right now, but make sure to decant it a good 1.5 to two hours prior to drinking."

"The 2014 Angélus is now really beginning to blossom. It has an outstanding bouquet with plush but delineated black cherry and cassis fruit, crushed violet and just a hint of pencil lead. There is wonderful focus here. The palate is medium-bodied with tightly knit black fruit, graphite and spice. There is weight and presence, but it is effortlessly counterbalanced by the freshness and acidity, whilst the finish if extraordinarily long. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting."
