Initially the wine is all firm tannins but then there is a pure line of fresh black fruits that comes through with cranberry tannins and blackberry jamminess. Above it all is succulent richness and clear acidity. A beautifully shaped wine. R.V.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Angelus, a blend of 47% Cabernet Franc, 50% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, has a very perfumed bouquet with scents of blueberry, cassis, crushed violets and just a touch of mushroom. This is very generous. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth, slightly toasty entry. The acidity is quite low compared to other 2006 Saint Emilions, but there is harmony here and the tannins seem very fine. There is real density on the finish, although I was just seeking a little more delineation to come through. Give this another two or three years in bottle. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin

This has a gorgeous nose of black licorice black cherry and sage. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a very long finish. There's beautiful texture for the vintage. Enjoy the fruit and richness. Best from 2013 through... This has a gorgeous nose of black licorice black cherry and sage. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a very long finish. There's beautiful texture for the vintage.

($250) Full ruby. Vibrant aromas of crushed blueberry and bitter chocolate are further brightened by a violet quality. Dense sweet and lush with terrific depth and freshness to its dark fruit mineral and violet flavors... ($250) Full ruby. Vibrant aromas of crushed blueberry and bitter chocolate are further brightened by a violet quality. Dense sweet and lush with terrific depth and freshness to its dark fruit mineral and violet flavors. This is really creamy-rich for the vintage. Finishes with smooth chocolatey tannins and outstanding palate-saturating length. It's hard to imagine how Hubert de Bouard managed to get such a deep layered middle palate without any sign of overextracted tannins or heaviness but he has managed this neat trick.

Sweet cocoa and caramel aromas swim over the fruit. Rich raspberry notes are followed by some lighter herbal qualities of tea and fresh mint. Soft and smooth on the palate entry the 2006 Angelus has a very silky mouth feel. The fruit and tannins build on the mid-palate through to the finish keeping the wine incredibly balanced with nice complexity and depth of flavor. Soft dark blueberry and caramel linger on the finish. This is a great wine.
