The 2021 Angelus is a captivating Bordeaux Blend from the prestigious Saint Emilion region in Bordeaux, France. With its deep red color and elegant label, this wine exudes sophistication from the moment it catches your eye. Crafted by the renowned producer Angelus, this vintage is a true testament to the estate's evolution under the guidance of Stéphanie de Boüard-Rivoal.

Comprised of 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot, the 2021 Angelus showcases the perfect balance between these two varietals. Aged partially in foudres, which are large oak vats, this wine embodies purity and finesse. As you pour it into your glass, the wine reveals compelling aromas of plums, raspberries, rose petals, vine smoke, blood orange, and warm spices. It is a sensory delight that entices you to delve deeper into its complexities.

On the palate, the 2021 Angelus unveils a medium to full-bodied profile with a rich and fleshy core. The ultra-refined tannins provide a structuring chassis that is entirely concealed by the wine's bright and sapid character. It is striking for its integration and elegance, even at this early stage. This wine has the potential to upstage more touted vintages once it matures in bottle.

Renowned wine critics have praised the 2021 Angelus for its exceptional quality. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate awarded it an impressive score of 96 points, highlighting its unprecedented purity and finesse. Decanter also awarded it 95 points, noting its seductive blackcurrant purée aromas and its density combined with an aerial element. Other critics, including Jeff Leve, Vinous, Jane Anson, Jeb Dunnuck, and James Suckling, all gave this vintage high scores, emphasizing its elegance, purity of fruit, and impressive finish.

With its complexity, refinement, and outstanding reviews, the 2021 Angelus is a wine that demands attention. Whether you are a collector or a wine enthusiast looking for an unforgettable experience, this Bordeaux Blend is a must-have addition to your cellar.
