    (Chateau Angélus St Emilion) 56% CF, 1% CS, 43% M. A Cabernet Franc vintage, so one to which I am bound to be predisposed. Deep, concentrated, rather similar to the 2001. Open, flashy, still the cashew nut of recent oak, rich, with mint, dark chocolate and cherry. Hugely characterful, smoky, has a little confit character that goes with being a 2003 but it is not as overt as it is in many wines. Full, huge, creamy and yet structured, well poised, a ripe core of velvety tannins. A very expressive, grippy style, deep but with good freshness of fruit despite the heatwave vintage. Wonderful potential here, as evinced by a flourish of ripe tannins on the finish. Great length too.

    (Château Angélus) Lovely ripe berry, caramel and coffee nose; tight but concentrated espresso-infused black fruit, tasty; medium-plus finish

Vintage Tastings

    State of Bordeaux, Day Two, 4/4/2006 92 points

    (L'Angelus) 58% Cabernet Franc, had the most regal style, and 2003 produced 'unbelievable Cabernet Franc' according to Hubert. There was that kiss of modern vanilla, yet also an underlying style and the elegance of the earth. Hubert found 'red fruits and raspberries,' and there was also coffee, chocolate and cassis. The L'Angelus was much denser than the Cheval, with an extra touch of dryness to its finish. Big, rich and robust with a long, dry finish, the 2003 had lots of beefy flavors. It was not my style of wine but quite respectable
