Elegance worthy of the greatest vintages.

With 98 points from both Decanter and The Wine Spectator as well, there is clearly Transatlantic appeal.  The wine is pretty sensational and has achieved impressive balance for the vintage.  Michel Rolland (who consults at Angelus) told me “there are more peaks in 2018 than in 2016”, and Angelus is clearly one of those especially at this keen release price of £1524 / 6 IB which is 16% down on 2016 and 9% down on 2017. 

"Despite the very hot summer, the acidities were maintained right to the end, giving the first wines tasted a sapidity, balance, freshness and elegance worthy of the greatest vintages." Angelus, 2018

"This shows beautifully sensibility of generous fruit and soft and velvety tannins with an undertone of chocolate and cedar. Full-bodied, pure and supple with a direct delivery of vibrant fruit and real terroir expression. Savory at the end with hazelnut and crunchy-seed flavors. Reality check here. Incredible fruit quality." 99-100/100, James Suckling

"This is rich and complex from the very first nose, showing dense brambled fruit with real precision of expression. After a few minutes the aromatics explode, leaping out of the glass and giving an extra level of enjoyment to the wine. In the mouth, lovely vibrant tannins grip without any sense of urgency, joined by curls of woodsmoke and salt taffy through the finish. It's gorgeous and will make you smile with its mouthwatering finish." 98/100 Jane Anson, Decanter
