Community Tasting Notes 78

    December 30, 2018 - Consumed over 2 days. Black and inky color. Primary nose of blackberry and spice maybe slightly medicinal. The palate is hard and impenetrable, showing lots of extraction and grape tannin. I was hoping after 13-14 years that this might be more open, but it is really dense and structured. Not pleasurable today.

    August 25, 2018 - Schöne Nase, Tannine gut integriert, langer Abgang. Schöner Wein, aber kommt insgesamt nicht an die Erwartungen heran - weniger differenziert oder explosiv als Name und Jahrgang suggeriert.

    August 17, 2018 - nose - raspberry
    mouth - slightly feral, funky, savory, complex dark fruit with a velvety mouthfeel. More complex and seemingly evolved than the 05 Pavie which we tasted immediately after.

    (Chateau Angélus St Emilion) An impressive depth apparent on the nose here, with purely defined, vibrant although rather dense and gamey-meaty fruit. Rather dark, quite spicy, with a touch of balsamic, rich but curranty style. The palate has a huge but rather softly defined presence, with a slowly building wall of tannin which comes to dominate the midpalate, over a layer of ripe, finely fleshy fruit. Huge and prodigious in terms of its structure. Great substance. There is undoubtedly great potential here, although in its currently youthful state it does seem a little loose-knit.

Sommelier Journal

    (Château Angélus, St. Émilion) Hubert de Boüard took over at Château Angélus in 1985, and by 1996, Angélus had been promoted to premier grand cru classé. With the 2005 vintage, Boüard has taken the winery to even greater heights. The youthful structure of this bottling makes it hard to believe that the cépage is 50% Merlot. Stunning blackberry and dark-cherry aromas are just the beginning, but the centerpiece of this wine is its concentration and balance.

    (Château Angélus) Dark red violet color; sexy lavender and rich blackberry nose; balanced palate of ripe plum, sweet tannins, and a cedar note, very structured and needs probably 10 years to open; medium-plus finish (60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc)

    (CHATEAU ANGELUS.) #1; COLOR-very dark; NOSE-amazing fruit explosion (black currant, cherry & cassis, hints of blueberries), chocolate/mocha, pure black licorice; TASTE-complete blitzkrieg of your palate, every part of palate is coated w/ charcoal, blackberry & black currant, huge mouthfeel, some heat (very young), huge tannin structure, explosive & tremendous, stunned by the balance of such a young wine, already has complete harmony; very special; expensive, but will be $1000 in 7-15 years ; RP-96/98; GV-99+
