The second wine of esteemed Chateau Angélus. First released in the 1987 vintage this wine has acquired its very own identity over the years. Reflecting the rigorous standards at Angélus the 2018 wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. It has slightly more Cabernet Franc than normal this vintage, which adds definition and lift to the spicy dark fruit. Extremely silky, and finished in 50% new French oak.
NOTE: PRE-ARRIVAL; PAYMENT IS DUE NOW; WINES ARRIVE IN SPRING 2021
This is a really together second wine of Angélus with a tight and focused center palate of blackberries and hints of chocolate and hazelnuts. Firm and very fine tannins and a long and persistent finish.
