A brilliant, intense, almost dark purple colour. The cornerstone on which this vintage is built is its great aromatic purity. Black fruit and wild cherry notes come bursting to the fore, while the oak is already completely integrated. The attack on the palate is suave, while the smooth, round and enveloping tannins are cashmere-like in texture. Thanks to the homogeneously high quality of the Cabernet Franc, the finish displays notes of spice and menthol, together with lovely freshness and tension. This wine is the mirror-image of the Angélus terroir: chiselled and precise. It also offers immediate tasting appeal, which complements well the wine’s elegant style. This wine will go down as one of the great Angélus vintages.
