    November 23, 2020 - During a St.Emilion dinner. Very deep garnet color for a 30 year old wine. The nose is also quite youthful with dark fruit, earthy and woody notes, spices. Ripe and extracted but not overripe, reminds me of a Dunn or Lokoya from Napa Valley, known for ripe, tannic and at times rustic wines. You could see that there was an ambitious team at work, may be too much so. Drink now but this will also keep for another decade. Good, but not as stellar as a bottle I had a few years back. 94+

    November 21, 2020 - Just spectacular. Beautifully round tannins, smooth but some blackberry and truffle. Just perfect. Now I'm just waiting for my next encounter with a '90 Angelus.

    November 21, 2020 - Angelus 238 Tasting. Some bricking. A rich and earthy nose. Leather, cedar, camphor and plum nose. Red and black fruits for the start and then tobacco, leather, spice, currants. This is a beautiful and elegant wine.

    November 21, 2020 - Opened 5 of these at once for a Commanderie event. There are little variations on the common theme or ravishingly gorgeous, cool mixed red, blue, and black berry fruit, truffle, potpourri, ganache, Christmas spice, and nuts - two bottles emphasize the mineral/truffle a bit more, one is a tad less developed but more exuberantly fruity. What a sumptuous, sophisticated personality this has, not just engaging but engrossing, utterly exemplifying the rare marriage of hedonism and elegance. Gorgeous, silky, round in the mouth - do you roll it around or does it roll you around? A triumph. 96-98 points (all neck fills with excellent corks)

    NB little need for air - actually seems to clamp down a bit in the decanter
