A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, this is clearly the greatest Angelus until the 2000, 2003 and then the perfect 2005. Beautiful, sweet plum, blackberry and blueberry fruit soar from the glass of this opaque, purple wine that still hasn’t lost much in color. Deep, opulent, voluptuously textured, full-bodied and multidimensional, this is a stunner and just now approaching its plateau of full maturity, where it should stay for at least another 20 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Aromatic beauty. Dark ruby-red color. Enticing aromas of cinnamon raspberry plum and cherry. Full-bodied with wonderfully polished tannins and a long fruity finish.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now. 12000 cases made.

Magnum. 50% Cabernet Franc, 50% Merlot. Very deep and with a rich, orange rim but great concentration. Still youthful and a return to Angélus. Silky fresh with lovely sweetness and absolutely lovely now. Pure pleasure... Magnum. 50% Cabernet Franc, 50% Merlot. Very deep and with a rich, orange rim but great concentration. Still youthful and a return to Angélus. Silky fresh with lovely sweetness and absolutely lovely now. Pure pleasure. Spice and sweetness and fragrance. Great balance and vibration. What a contrast with 1991! Long and reverberant and great balance. Rich tea-leaf aromas. Very sweet. Long. 18/20
