(05-2003) Burgundy red color. Evolved. Medium intensity. Nose of medium intensity. Dead leaf. Ink. Ripe fruit. Enough end to the commotion. Sappy and refined in its touch. Here is a fine, sappy, tasty and even wine on the palate which recalls the elegance of Margaux. It's good and melting, but I regret the rather short finish. Delicious to drink.

Château Angelus

Château Angelus was promoted Premier Grand Cru Classé A of Saint-Emilion in 2012 (previously it was 1st Grand Cru Classé B since 1954). He shares the head of the Saint Emilion wine classification with Ausone, Cheval Blanc and Pavie. 


The vineyard of Château Angelus is located on the foot of coast, a steep hillside facing south. The clay-limestone soil rests on a calcareous base. The grape variety is composed of about 51% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. In some years as in 2003, the share of Cabernet Franc even exceeds that of Merlot! Mature wine 18 to 22 months in new barrels. Since 2018, the castle Angelus initiates its conversion to Bio which should be completed in 2023.


The greatest vintages of Château Angelus are 1988, the 1989 vintage wines, 1990, 1993, 1994.
