Château Angélus 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is aromatic, harmonious, racy, elegant, complex and offers power, delicacy, a beautiful grain as well as richness. It reveals notes of wild blackberry and ripe wild ripe cassis associated with small notes of Sichuan pepper, crushed strawberry, crushed raspberry, toasted, oaked as well as fine hints of coffee, spices, subtle hint of toasted bread (in the background), a imperceptible hint of cornflower/lily (in the background) and a very discreet hint of gray pepper. The palate is fresh, fruity, elegant, well-balanced, aery and offers density, tension, freshness as well as complexity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed blackberry, fleshy cassis and more slightly wild strawberry associated with small touches of blue flowers, fine touches of violet, lily, toasted almond, liquorice as well as discreet touches of sweet spices, fine hints of cushed almond and nuts. Tannins are fine, chewy and offer a beautiful grain. Good length and aromatic persistence.
