Château Angélus, 2009

RRP £343

The success of the 2009 Angélus no doubt contributed to the château’s promotion to premier grand cru classé in 2021, bringing it alongside Cheval Blanc and Ausone at least in terms of its official classification. The aromas are meaty, herbal, and a touch peppery, with a profound depth, giving the simultaneous impression of opacity and crystal-clarity. Monumental in the mouth: opulent without being overdone or unapproachable. A touch of expensive new oak is still just discernible 10 years on, but the confident fruit wins out. The texture is voluptuous yet polished. This leaves its mark on you.
