Over the years my score has been rising and it's easy to see why. Combining power, elegance, sensuous textures, mouth filling depth and cashmere tannins, this hits all the right pleasure buttons. The texture is surreal. It's interesting to note that while the wine reached 15.6% ABV, there is no touch of heat. When this wine hits its stride, I expect the wine could receive 100 Pts!

Full body, with seamless tannins and beautiful richness. It goes on for minutes. The layers of fruit and ripe tannins are phenomenal. This is the greatest Angelus ever for me. Try in 2018.

Composed of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet colored 2010 Angélus has an open-for-business nose of baked plums, Black Forest cake and blueberry pie with touches of hoisin, Marmite toast and eucalyptus...   Composed of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet colored 2010 Angélus has an open-for-business nose of baked plums, Black Forest cake and blueberry pie with touches of hoisin, Marmite toast and eucalyptus. Full-bodied, rich and oh-so-sensuous, the palate is jam-packed with decadent fruit and framed by firm, ripe, and rounded tannins, finishing with epic length.- LPB

Highlighting the serious side of Angélus, at 10 years old you get to fully appreciate the tension, energy and purity that is such a signature of this vintage, and that is just jumping out of the glass. Olive paste, clove and cinnamon sit alongside powerful blackberry fruits. The alcohol comes through in the velvety texture, but there is not a trace of heat. No question about the confident tannins on the other hand, giving a path forward for a wine that just seems to keep on expanding in the mouth, finishing with pulses of salinity. Harvest September 28th to October 21st. Tasted in Shanghai November 2019 also, and equally showstopping.

You'll need it to wait this brute out fully. A chunk of tar sits between you and the core of black currant, hoisin sauce and roasted Black Mission fig fruit flavors, while the back end is a road-paving machine laying down a smoldering tarry track of tobacco and freshly ground coffee. And there's an iron note too, as if this needed it. One of the most backward wines of the vintage. Best from 2017 through 2040. – JM

The Angelus 2010 has a rounded, more feminine bouquet that its peers with vivacious red cherries and wild strawberry scents. There is well-integrated creamy oak all with an alluring seamlessness and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine acidity and slightly powdery tannins. It is very well focused with super tension and structure on the finish. Excellent. This Angelus seems to be settling down nicely.

(91-93 points) Firm and tannic, very structured wine, while still savoring its rich fruit character. This feels very opulent and rich. There is a problem with alcohol showing through as a pepper edge. ROGER VOSS
