Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker, Jancis Robinson, and Suckling

The 2018 Angélus is blended of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc, aged mainly in oak barriques, 100% new, plus two new foudres. Deep garnet-purple in color, it struts flamboyantly out of the glass with stylish scents of black raspberries, boysenberries and Black Forest cake, plus nuances of rose oil, forest floor, dusty soil and cinnamon toast with a hint of cedar chest. The medium to full-bodied palate is carrying a little new oak at this youthful stage, framing the generous red and black fruits along with ripe, plush grape-skin tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and spicy. Give it 5-6 years in cellar for everything to marry, then drink it over the next 20+ years.

— Lisa Perrotti-Brown (31/03/2021)Robert Parker Wine Advocate Vintage 2018 - 97+ PARKER

More overtly blackcurrant-fruited than their Carillon, thanks to the Cabernet Franc element, no doubt. Dry and finely brushed in terms of texture with excellent integration and seamless connection between fruit, oak and leathery notes. Very youthful of course, and full of potential. Long, smoky length.

— Richard Hemming (09/03/2021)JancisRobinson.com Vintage 2018 - 17.5 JANCIS ROBINSON

The aromas are incredibly complex with dark berries, elderberries, bay leaves, cloves and tile, follow through to a full body with layers of creamy and lightly dusty tannins that deliver a lingering finish and great attention to detail. The flavors range from black fruit to earth and stones. It’s reserved and poised with great intensity and power, in a toned and formed mode. One for the cellar. Try after 2026.
