Chateau Angelus 1988
€ 422,29 (in Vat)
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
The 1988 is a rich, almost lusty St.-Emilion, with a full-throttle bouquet of licorice, spicy new oak, cassis, olives, and minerals. Full-bodied, deep, and concentrated, it offers excellent extract, and a long, heady, moderately tannic finish. For the vintage, it is surprisingly ripe and sweet.
Winespectator / James Suckling (94)
I have always loved this wine. It's just so flashy and showy, with everything up front. Incredibly rich and fruity, with chocolate and spice undertones. Full-bodied and extremely well concentrated, with big, velvety tannins and a long aftertaste of fruit and chocolaty vanilla.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 19/20 points.
