Peter Maude Fine Wines

2020, Château Angelus, SAINT-ÉMILION, 1er Grand Cru Classé 'A'


Bordeaux Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Franc.

A deep and rich nose, but so pure, clear and clean, it smells beautiful. The aromas really shine in the glass, too, with a texture that is smooth and supple, giving and generous. A powerful wine with excellent persistence from start to finish. Extremely youthful, tense and focused into one sleek line and, although you get ripe fruit - black berries, cassis, with some gorgeous bitter orange peel nuances - there's so much minty freshness too. Concentration but no overt heaviness, discreet power. I love the chalky, milk chocolate nuances - well built and complex with a clear backbone and long ageing potential. Brilliant winemaking on show. 97/100 Georgina Hindle, Decanter. 

Drinking Window: 2028 - 2058
