On the other hand, the opaque purple-colored 2013 Angelus, a brilliant blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc harvested between September 9 and October 3 (only 60% of the production was utilized), possesses good acidity as well as pure blueberry, mulberry and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of licorice, Christmas fruitcake, underbrush and forest floor. With medium body and more texture than is found in most 2013s, it should drink well for 8-10 years. This vineyard is meticulously manicured and the wine is brilliantly made by Hubert de Bouard.

 

90-92 Neal Martin

The Grand Vin, which this year contains only the old vine Cabernet Franc (representing 38% of the blend) has a conservative bouquet, without the thrills and spills of the 2009 or 2010 and it seems rather straight-laced and linear. That is not necessarily a bad thing: this is nicely focused and controlled. The palate is medium-bodied with fine acidity, impressive tension and focus with a pleasing sense harmony towards the finish. Whilst it is not a flamboyant Angelus, this is a classy Saint Emilion for drinking over the next decade. Tasted April 2014.
