Angelus 金鐘 1996
Price: $2370 / bottle
|Classification:||1er Grand Cru Classe A|
By Robert Parker in 2002 (RP91+)
A massive, powerful Angelus, this wine exhibits a saturated black/ruby/purple color as well as an impressively endowed nose of dried herbs, roasted meats, new saddle leather, plum liqueur, and cassis. In the mouth, olive notes make an impression. This sweet, full-bodied, exceptionally concentrated wine is atypically backward and ferociously tannic. It was revealing more sweetness and forwardness immediately prior to bottling, but I would now recommend at least 3-4 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025.
