Barrel Sample. This is a very fine wine, richly textured and concentrated. The acidity is forward, although it’s roundly ensconced and cushioned by the rich, ripe fruitiness.
By James Suckling in 2014 (JS92-93)
Sexy and elegant for the vintage. A blueberry, floral and citrus character on the nose and palate. Full body, with an impressive density for the vintage and a pretty, bright finish. Excellent length.

On the other hand, the opaque purple-colored 2013 Angelus, a brilliant blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc harvested between September 9 and October 3 (only 60% of the production was utilized), possesses good acidity as well as pure blueberry, mulberry and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of licorice, Christmas fruitcake, underbrush and forest floor. With medium body and more texture than is found in most 2013s, it should drink well for 8-10 years. This vineyard is meticulously manicured and the wine is brilliantly made by Hubert de Bouard.
