The 2014 vintage is a great success in the Bordeaux vineyard, marked first by a hot and dry spring, followed by a rather cool summer. But from the end of August, the good weather returns, as well as the confidence of the technical teams of the vineyard of Château Angélus. The different grape varieties will finish their maturation under an exceptional weather, especially in October.

Blend of the 2014 vintage: 50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet franc

The robe captivates the eye with a beautiful deep and intense red color, with orange reflections.

The nose is particularly expressive, marked by aromas of very ripe black fruits, menthol, flowers and spices, wrapped in a hint of delicate toasted wood.

Soft at the attack, it quickly reveals a lot of fullness and a fleshy matter quite exquisite. The tannins are fine, offering the sensation of a balanced power counterbalanced by a nice tension. It ends on a very tasty, long and persistent finish.

Food and wine pairing:

Château Angélus 2014 will pair well with herb-crusted roast beef, duck breast with pepper sauce or veal paupiettes with forest sauce. It can also be enjoyed with a shoulder of lamb confit or sliced venison with boletus.

For cheeses, prefer soft cheeses with a bloomy rind: Brie, Brillat-savarin, Chaource and coulommiers.

It will also taste very well on several desserts, notably a black forest, an opera cake or praline macaroons.

Ageing potential and tasting:

The tasting peak of Château Angélus 2014 is between 2030 and 2040, and successive tastings should be done to measure its evolution as well as its qualitative peak.

To be served at room temperature, taking care to put the bottle in the room the day before, to open it and to decant it 5 or 6 hours before the tasting.

The bottles will be kept in the cellar protected from the light, lying down, with an optimal hygrometric degree of 70%.

Château l'Angélus, called Château Angélus since the 1990 harvest, owes its name to the fact that, given its location, it was the only place around Saint-Emilion from where you could hear the angelus ringing from the surrounding churches the chapel of Mazerat, the church of Saint Martin and the church of Saint-Emilion.

It is from this three hectare vineyard that the whole of this vineyard was built by successive purchase, which today covers around 25 hectares.

The Château, classified Premier Grand Cru "A" since 2012, produces approximately 100 to

110,000 bottles with vines with an average age of 35 years. Soil and subsoil are clay-limestone.

Grape variety: Merlot Noir 50%; Cabernet franc 47% and Cabernet Sauvignon 3%

All the harvest is manual and the wine of each year ages entirely in new barrels for 18 to 22 months.
