Quite tasty even if the Brett is at my upper threshold.

Seductive aromatics of black cherry and plum, touch of damp earth. Sweet fruit in the textured palate. Long, powerful finish. One of the wines of the day.

Lovely and accessible, the 1995 Angelus shows off its pedigree and high percentage of Cabernet Franc with only minimal decanting. A slightly woodsy bouquet of black currants, plums, cedar, forest underbrush, spiced orange pomander, dried lavender and incense. On the palate, poised supple tannins and a fine acid backbone underpin steeped blackberry, crème de cassis, bay leaf, dried herbs and delicate minerality. This legendary Saint-Émilion dances in the glass, and ends triumphantly, in a grand jeté.

Well balanced and expressive with the requisite components. Should be great in 10 years.
