A strong effort in this under-appreciated vintage that sold for a song, the 2008 Angelus is still young and vibrant, with a dense purple color and a sweet kiss of chocolate-infused blackberries and blackcurrants. There are some floral notes, as well as forest floor and lead pencil nuances. Medium to full-bodied with ripe tannin and outstanding equilibrium and purity, this is another beauty from a much more challenging vintage. Drink now through 2030. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Chateau Angélus continues its winning ways of late with a very rich fully ripened wine whose expression of substantial sweet- currant fruit seems amplified with each sip. It combines volume and a full body with a fine sense of overall balance and plenty of grippy yet integral tannins that provide it with great longevity. It is a deep and impressively filled effort that stands with the better bottlings of its district.

The nose reveals some complexity with aromas of strawberry earth and tar. The entry is soft and smooth and there's an attractive depth to the flavors but the tannins are a tad coarse at this time. Could be very good with... The nose reveals some complexity with aromas of strawberry earth and tar. The entry is soft and smooth and there's an attractive depth to the flavors but the tannins are a tad coarse at this time. Could be very good with just a little more time.
