Chateau Angelus Hommage a Elisabeth Bouchet Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe 2019  - First Bottle


98 Jeb Dunnuck -
Based on a final blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 Château Angélus is knockout stuff, and while I'm not sure it matches the perfect 2018, it's not far off. Gorgeous notes of redcurrants, blueberries, sandalwood, dried flowers, vanilla, and forest floor are just some of its nuances, and it hits the palate with medium to full body, a perfectly balanced, seamless mouthfeel, beautifully ripe tannins, and a great, great finish. It doesn't have the sheer weight or richness of, say, the 1998, 2000, 2005, or even the 2009, but it doesn't lack for intensity or power, and it’s just a beautiful example of modern-day Saint-Emilion. It's already approachable (this was best on day two) yet will keep for another 30+ years.

About the Producer

In the first-ever classification of Saint-Emilion wines in 1954, Chateau Angelus was a Grand Cru Class. Already at the time, it benefitted from a solid reputation, which helped it survive the Bordeaux wine crisis of 1973 and take part in the oenological renewal of the 1980s. This was the context in which Hubert de Bouard de Laforest, a graduate oenologist from Bordeaux University, took advantage of this marvelous wine's illustrious past while being resolutely turned towards the future and launched and continued to implement an ambitious, innovative policy in favor of achieving excellence in wine growing and making.
