On the other hand, the opaque purple-colored 2013 Angelus, a brilliant blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc harvested between September 9 and October 3 (only 60% of the production was utilized), possesses good acidity as well as pure blueberry, mulberry and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of licorice, Christmas fruitcake, underbrush and forest floor. With medium body and more texture than is found in most 2013s, it should drink well for 8-10 years. This vineyard is meticulously manicured and the wine is brilliantly made by Hubert de Bouard.
90-93 points – Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #214, Aug 2014)
Dark and loamy-edged, with a generous feel to the layers of warm fig paste, blackberry coulis and plum sauce, quickly followed by smoldering tobacco and bittersweet cocoa notes. The tarry spine imparts a muscular feel overall. Shows more power than purity, but pulls it off. Best from 2018 through 2025. 6,667 cases made.

Sexy and elegant for the vintage. A blueberry, floral and citrus character on the nose and palate. Full body with an impressive density for the vintage and a pretty, bright finish. Excellent length.

Opaque dark ruby. Complex aromas of blueberry, mocha, underbrush and aromatic herbs. Sweet, fleshy, clean flavors of dark berries and chocolate-covered plums are complicated by oaky and peppery nuances at the back. This is a successful Angelus for the year--one that is less extracted than some recent monsters and benefited in overall balance because of it.
