2010 Angelus

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2010
Appellation: St Emilion
99+ (RP)
One of the largest and most popular estates in St. Emilion, Chateau Angelus was promoted to premier grand cru status in 1996 after fantastic work by seven generations of the Bouard de Laforest family. After Hubert de Bouard put Angelus firmly back on the map with the 2009/2010 pair, the estate was upgraded once again to the legendary ‘A’ status in 2012, celebrated with a special labelling of that vintage. Since then Hubert has handed over the reins to his daughter Stephanie de Bouard-Rivoal which led to a shift in stylistic direction. The wines of Angelus have seen a significant step back in terms of ripening, extraction and oak treatment, with an excellent critical response.

Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

This is another magnificent wine. How much fun will it be to have the 2000, 2005, 2009 and 2010 in future tastings to see which vintage comes out on top? They are all candidates that will flirt with perfection, depending on the state of their evolution. The 2010 has a similar color to the 2009, but is perhaps even more opaque, which seems almost impossible. Subtle barbecue smoke, graphite, blackberry liqueur, licorice and chocolate jump from the glass, and the wine hits the palate with a thunderous cascade of sweet, velvety, full-bodied, concentrated black fruits, nice definition from the tannins and decent acidity. The wine has a majestic, multilayered finish that goes on for a minute. This magnificent wine is still frightfully young and still somewhat unformed, but every bit as prodigious as its older sibling, the 2009. This will probably end up evolving on a slightly slower evolutionary track. However, it has 50 years of longevity in it.

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The Angelus 2010 has a rounded, more feminine bouquet that its peers with vivacious red cherries and wild strawberry scents. There is well-integrated creamy oak all with an alluring seamlessness and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine acidity and slightly powdery tannins. It is very well focused with super tension and structure on the finish. Excellent. This Angelus seems to be settling down nicely. Tasted January 2014.

1er Grand Cru Classe St Emilion (32hl/ha, 14.5%) Intense, almost raisiny ripe to smell; elegantly balanced, full without being heavy, a concentrated core of very pure fruit, within the characteristically firm, dry oak tannin dominated texture; long across the palate, a sort of warm and spicy black cherry flavour, lightly mineral tinged, long, warm finish. Considerable finesse, fresh and harmonious in its style. As usual I wish there were less oak tannin dryness. Drink 2020-30+

Got patience? You'll need it to wait this brute out fully. A chunk of tar sits between you and the core of black currant, hoisin sauce and roasted Black Mission fig fruit flavors, while the back end is a road-paving machine laying down a smoldering tarry track of tobacco and freshly ground coffee. And there's an iron note too, as if this needed it. One of the most backward wines of the vintage. Best from 2017 through 2040. 8,750 cases made.

Stephen Tanzer

Good deep, bright ruby-red. Extravagantly rich aromas of black raspberry, blueberry, bitter chocolate and coconutty oak. Like liquid silk in the mouth, but with outstanding verve to the huge, palate-saturating flavors of blueberry, violet, espresso and minerals. This is almost too much of a good thing today in a Napa cult wine way, but the wine's molten, slowly building tannins and outstanding finishing power promise a long and glorious evolution in bottle.

The nose is impressively rich with an opulence and sexiness with earth, berry, spice and chocolate character. Black truffles! Full body, with seamless tannins and beautiful richness. It goes on for minutes. The layers of fruit and ripe tannins are phenomenal. This is the greatest Angelus ever for me. Try in 2018.

This just keeps on getting better and better. Over the years my score has been rising and it's easy to see why. Combining power, elegance, sensuous textures, mouth filling depth and cashmere tannins, this hits all the right pleasure buttons. The texture is surreal. It's interesting to note that while the wine reached 15.6% ABV, there is no touch of heat. When this wine hits its stride, I expect the wine could receive 100 Pts!

A longer, slower harvest than 2009, with cooler nights giving a resultantly fresher acidity. Highlighting the serious side of Angélus, at 10 years old you get to fully appreciate the tension, energy and purity that is such a signature of this vintage, and that is just jumping out of the glass. Olive paste, clove and cinnamon sit alongside powerful blackberry fruits. The alcohol comes through in the velvety texture, but there is not a trace of heat. No question about the confident tannins on the other hand, giving a path forward for a wine that just seems to keep on expanding in the mouth, finishing with pulses of salinity. Harvest September 28th to October 21st. Tasted in Shanghai November 2019 also, and equally showstopping. Drinking Window 2023 - 2050
