Tasting Notes Angelus 2008

93

Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. The Angelus 2008 has a fascinating nose, this a little more open than the magnum tasted at the vertical the previous October and revealing its pixelated nature: aromas of blackcurrant, kirsch, a touch of creme de cassis with marmalade in the background. The palate is full-bodied with layers of creamy dark fruit and shows of Hubert de Bouard’s trademark silky tannins, though I feel that is reflecting the winemaking rather than a vineyard or terroir.Tasted January 2012.

A stunning success, this 7,000-case blend of 58% Merlot and 42% Cabernet Franc reveals a beautiful nose of black currants, black cherries, loamy soil and forest flora. Full-bodied, this deep, chewy, savory, broadly-flavored 2008 possesses sweet tannin, decent acidity and a long finish. Its 14% alcohol content is nearly as high as the 2009's and 2010's 14.5%. Already accessible, it should continue to age effortlessly for 20-25 years.
