Tasting Notes Angelus 2009

99

A candidate for one of the finest Angelus produced to date (and there have been many, including 1989, 1990, 2000 and 2005), this blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc was fashioned from tiny yields of 20 hectoliters per hectare. It boasts a black/purple color along with a gorgeous perfume of blueberry liqueur, spring flowers and graphite. In the mouth, notes of incense and cassis also emerge from this velvety-textured, full-bodied, intensely concentrated 2009. With silky tannins, low acidity and spectacular purity, texture and depth, it is already approachable (although I’m sure proprietor Hubert de Bouard would think drinking it now is akin to infanticide), but should keep for 20-30+ years.

Gorgeous nose of crushed blackberries with bramble berries and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with a solid core of ripe fruit and polished tannins. Compacted texture. Long, long finish. Try in 2020.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. There is wonderful clarity on the nose of the Angelus 2009: baked cherry, kirsch, honeyed notes and a touch of violet. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. There is a lovely grainy texture with hints of sweet toffee infusing the plush red fruit. There is good tension and superb vigour on the finish. Excellent. Tasted January 2013.
