The 2021 Angélus is a standout wine of the vintage. The team has named 2021 “the unexpected” – a vintage that surprised everyone with its quality after the tricky growing season. For the first time ever, the wine is 60% Cabernet Franc (the 2002 and 2003 vintages come closest, each having over 50%). This blend, extensive sorting, gentle extraction and the estate’s trademark attention to detail has produced a vibrant and pure wine – with 13.5% natural alcohol. Vibrantly purple in the glass, the 2021 Ch. Angélus is a gorgeous wine – aromas of spice and vanilla complementing fresh cherry and raspberry. It’s a wine of stunning purity and elegance. The tannins provide a chalky grip, while the acidity is zesty – almost orange-edged, building to a long, mineral, saline finish. Unfortunately yields are down by 40% (at 23hl/ha) due to mildew. Blend: 60% Cabernet Franc, 40% Merlot
