Château Angélus

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2006

Decanted 1 hour ( lots of sediment). It's a right bank Friday!! A bewitching dark purple. On the nose: blue fruit, floral, earth. Taste: blueberry, smoke, plum, pencil lead...smooth tannin with medium acidity and medium finish. Drink now or over next 10 years. One of the better 06 wines, a vintage I have surprisingly not been fond of. For LCG!! — 19 days ago

Château Cheval Blanc

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Delectable Wine
9.5

The 2014 Cheval Blanc does not convey the same sophistication and panache as the Angélus. This is more rugged and earthier, quite powerful with pencil lead and sous-bois aromas developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, plenty of blackberry laced with cedar, mint, fruitcake and white pepper notes. It finishes with some style and it feels very long on the finish. I just think that unlike Angélus this is going to need several years to really knit together. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. (Neal Martin, Vinous, March 2018) — a year ago
