Tasting Notes Angelus 2012

94-96

Owned by Hubert de Bouard, the 2012 Angelus was harvested between October 8-18, yields were 34 hectoliters per hectare, and the natural alcohol was over 14%. The final blend was 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the superstars of the vintage, the dense opaque purple/blue-colored 2012 offers up notes of barbecue smoke, graphite, charcoal, blueberries, blackberries, sweet cherries and forest floor. With terrific fruit intensity, a powerful, layered, multidimensional mouthfeel and full body, it should be drinkable at an early age given the sweetness of the tannin. It should easily evolve for 15-20 years.

This is powerful and rich with lots of blackberries and cherries. Loads of richness and intensity. We will see but shows loads of potential. Intense.

A blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Franc, picked from 8th October and 19th October, affected by the rains on the final days. They have not used optical sorting machine since the 2009 vintage, and use the Winery de pellanc, the Mistral (fan-blower) and a long vibrating table. I have to say straight away that I find much more clarity on the bouquet here than on the primeur sample of the 2011 this time last year - bright blackberry, raspberry leaf and minerals with hints of violet underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite sturdy tannins, crisp acidity, very fine focus and good precision on the finish. This could turn out to be one of the best wines of the appellation. Excellent. Tasted April 2013.
