Tasting Notes and Scores

A strong effort in this under-appreciated vintage that sold for a song, the 2008 Angelus is still young and vibrant, with a dense purple color and a sweet kiss of chocolate-infused blackberries and blackcurrants. There are some floral notes, as well as forest floor and lead pencil nuances. Medium to full-bodied with ripe tannin and outstanding equilibrium and purity, this is another beauty from a much more challenging vintage. Drink now through 2030.

The 2008 Angélus is a vintage that I have tasted many times. It boasts a rich but fortunately not overbearing bouquet adorned with macerated red cherries, camphor, hints of jalapeño pepper and later, a tang of dried blood, almost ferrous. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth polished tannin matched with well judged acidity. It is backward in style to the point that you could almost describe it as "charmless", though that is by dint of its youthfulness. It just needs time. Signaling that this Angélus clams up towards the finish as if to say: "Too early". You know what? It is probably right. (Tasted at the château and at BI Wine & Spirits' annual vertical tasting.)

Bright red-ruby. Plum, cedar shavings and sexy chocolatey oak on the nose. Lush and seamless in the mouth, with a restrained sweetness to the flavors of plum, smoke, licorice and mint. Conveys a delightlfully weightless quality. Lovely elegant, balanced 2008, with nothing excessive about it. The cabernet franc contributes perfume and definition.
