A hard to read wine when we tasted it in Bordeaux, this has since fleshed out quite a lot, now showing deeper, wilder black fruit aromas and a hint of earthiness. Forest floor and cigar box add complexity. A very fine Angelus

Angelus

Château Angelus is a Saint-Émilion Premier Cru Classé A. The estate has one of the longest histories in Saint-Émilion, dating back to 1782. Saint-Émilion itself was previously called 'Ascumbas'. It was renamed after the monk called Émilion, a travelling confessor, who settled in a hermitage carved into the rock there in the 8th century. The monks who followed him started up the commercial wine production in the area. Angelus is owned by the historic de Bouard family. It has a fanatical following in China, in part due to the label image of a golden bell. In China the wine is referred to as 'Kin Chung' (The Golden Bell). The wine has also been featured in James Bond films.
