Blended of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet colored 2009 Angélus sings of blackberry preserves, warm black cherries, stewed plums and dried herbs with hints of Chinese five spice, fragrant earth, truffles and new leather. Full, rich, spicy and decadent in the mouth, it has a plush, velvety texture and well-knit freshness, finishing very long with tons of spicy layers. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

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.

Espresso, chocolate, licorice, plum liqueur, truffle and mint are revealed with little effort. Rich, thick, dense, opulent and packed with sexy, plush fruit and minerality, the long, pure, finish is rich, clean and builds on the palate for close to fifty seconds!

If you've ever eaten really good British Christmas cake then you know what this lavish 2009 St.-Emilion smells and tastes like. Every bit as rich as it is polished with a long moderately dry finish packed with powdery tannins. Drink or hold.

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

The 2009 Angélus has a very refined bouquet with a mixture of red and black fruit, quite lavish in style with hints of crushed violet developing in the glass. You cannot help but be taken by the purity of this Angélus... The 2009 Angélus has a very refined bouquet with a mixture of red and black fruit, quite lavish in style with hints of crushed violet developing in the glass. You cannot help but be taken by the purity of this Angélus. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe and supple tannin, well judged acidity, beautifully balanced with supremely well integrated oak towards the finish. This is a wonderful Angélus that should give another two or three decades of drinking pleasure. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits' Ten Year On tasting. -- Neal Martin

The generosity of the kirsch and black cherry fruit is clear here, with a bitter dark chocolate note. It's turbo-charged, and for now the vintage is speaking loudly, reflecting a more muscular approach to St-Emilion than the estate has displayed in more recent vintages. Still young, it has a tannic frame with plenty of room for limbering up, and is unquestionably a gourmet approach to the vintage - and a successful one.

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.
