K&L Notes

94-96 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Angélus was picked from 24 September until 11 October and for the first time is aged in two new foudres (one more on the way) which are designed to limit the impact of wood and oxygen ingress. These are currently being used for the Cabernet Franc, then after a year, the juice is transferred into used oak barrel. Deep in colour, it has a dense bouquet with high-toned black cherry and cassis fruit, touches of dark chocolate and sandalwood. It feels a little unsettling although it has just been racked. The palate is medium-bodied with soft and supple tannins, rounded in the mouth with touches of sea salt and black pepper. It is an intense rather than powerful Angélus. There is a drive towards more elegance at the estate, though perhaps the warmth of the second part of the growing season did not allow them to fully realize this. Still, it is a very fine Angélus that will age with style." (11/2019)

    The 2018 Angelus is a big, dense and powerful wine underneath its upfront fruit and spice. The middle fruit is lush, concentrated and velvety, before the tannins grab you on the finish. This is a great cellar selection!

    65% Merlot 35% Cabernet Franc … Fresh Cab Franc on the nose, perfect deep ripe fruit without a hint of over ripeness on the palate. A strong linear wine with great freshness and certainly one of the best wines of the vintage. 3 Stars! Ralph Sands

    First of the big gun 2018s to be released and it is quite reasonably priced. Same opening as the 2015 vintage and this wine is much better. Very elegant red fruit aromas. Not a blockbuster, but wonderfully balanced with lots of licorice flavors and lingering finish. Velvety tannins. Lots of tobacco and coffee notes. Great effort.

    Angélus is one of the most opulent and decadent 2018s. It is framed with copious deep red and bright black fruits with an extremely silky texture and acidity to help support the weight and depth. As usual, there is great length in a long, mouthcoating finish lined with a mineral streak. It will demand cellaring on release, but it certainly has the pedigree to rank among their finest of the past decade.
