The wine is full-bodied, with a voluptuous texture a magnificent concentration and purity of fruit, a stunning finish of close to a minute, and wonderfully sweet, velvety tannins that make for a prodigious Angelus that should turn out to be one of the all-time greats ever made at this estate. Drink it over the next 25-50 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

It too is a massive, opulent, full-bodied effort that’s loaded with notions of blackberry liqueur, chocolate, roasted herbs and licorice, and it has a sexy, layered style that just begs to be drunk. This monster Saint-Emilion checks in just behind the otherworldly 2005 and is neck and neck with the 2015, both of which are young and need bottle age.

Gorgeous nose of crushed blackberries with bramble berries and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied with a solid core of ripe fruit and polished tannins. Compacted texture. Long long finish. Try in 2020.

Rich and rather stolid now this features a wall of roasted apple wood and charcoal flavors in front of the dense core of black Mission fig steeped black currant fruit and espresso notes. Extremely dense on the finish but the inlaid spice and tobacco hints are there just beneath the surface needing only extended cellaring to emerge fully. One of the larger-scaled efforts of the vintage. Best from 2018 through 2035. -JM

Stephen Tanzer's IWC, July 2012
Deep saturated ruby to the rim. Superripe high-toned aromas of kirsch and dark chocolate. Large-scaled ripe and chocolatey conveying a distinctly exotic character and an impression of power.

Large-scaled ripe and chocolatey conveying a distinctly exotic character and an impression of power. Finishes with huge but ripe tannins and a lingering note of mocha. For the first 24 hours in the bottle the vintage dominated the wine's cabernet franc character but eventually blackberry violet and licorice elements emerged. Built for a long life in bottle.

Wine Enthusiast, February 2013
Closed at this stage, this promises a huge, ripe future. Toast and spice notes are balanced around a black plum flavor. The dense, dark tannins create a brooding character, which is balanced by freshness on the finish... Closed at this stage, this promises a huge, ripe future. Toast and spice notes are balanced around a black plum flavor. The dense, dark tannins create a brooding character, which is balanced by freshness on the finish. Give this wine at least 10 years.

(17/20) Sweet, floral, flattering nose. Just this side of syrupy in texture. A bit hot on the finish and quite drying on the end. For the moment a bit awkward but it could not be faulted for not trying. Wait.

60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc. A restrained bouquet is part of a very deeply colored wine with some big tannins. Full bodied with dark fruits and tobacco and a nice long finish.
