Still inky in color as you might expect, the wine pops with its smoky, floral, licorice, truffle and chocolate covered boysenberry, or is that cherry, or is that plum? There are so many different fruits on display here... Still inky in color as you might expect, the wine pops with its smoky, floral, licorice, truffle and chocolate covered boysenberry, or is that cherry, or is that plum? There are so many different fruits on display here, it's like being in a farmers market. On the palate, the wine is drenched in velvet. This is sensuality at its best. Full bodied and concentrated, the fruit builds as the finish lingers. The wine should age for 3 decades or longer with ease.

Full body and polished and full tannins. Great length. The refinement to the tannins is amazing. Compacted. Essence-like. Needs five or six years to open. Try in 2025.

A beautiful Angélus, its clear balance on display in the contrast between rich impact and palate-climbing layers of freshness. This is extremely accomplished, taking its time to show its power and density, leisurely playing with dark spice, liquorice and chocolate notes against the grip of juicy acidity and feather-soft tannins. It's really rather gorgeous, and is going to settle in for a long life. 100% new oak.

Made from 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc brought up in new barrels, this rich, opulent beauty boast killer notes of blackcurrants, blackberry liqueur, truffle, chocolate and scorched earth. With full-bodied richness, building, ripe tannin and a stacked profile on the palate, this hedonistic Bomb of a wine from Hubert de Boüard needs 4-5 years of cellaring and will keep for three decades or more.

The 2015 Angélus has a calm, cool and collected bouquet of tightly wound black fruit that unfurls with aeration to reveal blackberry, gravel and pencil box notes; classic, almost Left Bank in style, and delivered with real panache. The palate is exquisitely balanced with fine but grippy tannin, layers of black and red fruit tinged with vanilla and perfect acidity. The harmonious, sensual finish is very alluring. What a stunning 2015 this is going to be! Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. -- Neal Martin

A blend of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Angelus reveals a deep garnet-purple color and fragrant aromas of crushed red currants, warm plums and pencil shavings with hints of incense, sage, violets and tobacco. Full-bodied, very fine and intense yet exquisitely delicate with wonderful freshness, it has ripe yet firm, very finely grained tannins and an epically long, perfumed finish. With bags of perfume and a captivating plushness, this Angelus is a real head-turner! - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Dense, dark and muscular, featuring waves of warmed fig, plum and black currant paste that roll in with warm ganache, baker's chocolate and espresso accents. A huge swath of smoldering tobacco is brewing on the finish, which has a brooding feel, thanks to tannins that hit like a thunderclap at the end. If you've got time to wait... Best from 2028 through 2045. 8,750 cases made.–JM
