    (L’Angelus) The 1989 L’Angelus was deeper, nuttier and thicker than the first two wines, possessing aromas of peanut and black cherry. Its flavors were much blacker as well, invoking feelings of tar, asphalt, chocolate and black fruits. It tasted like it was on steroids compared to the first two wines. It was big, beefy and long, but not really my style, especially after the first two classics (92).

    (Château Angélus) Mystery wine, eventually revealed as 1989 Angelus – medium red violet color; tart cherry and cassis nose with a touch of cedar; tasty, tart plush red fruit, black fruit, plum palate, with iron, mineral, good structure; medium finish (I properly guessed it as ’89 Angelus, based on the hint that it was a St. Emilion; otherwise, I might have been speculating about which older Left Bank Bordeaux it was)

    (Château Angélus) Olive and fig nose; beautiful, balanced, complex, herbaceous, black fruit, pepper palate; medium-plus finish (24 mos. in barrel; 100% new oak)
