Lobenberg: Die Assemblage in 2019: 60 Prozent Merlot und 40 Prozent Cabernet Franc. Der Alkoholgehalt liegt zwischen 14 und 14,5 Volumenprozent. Sehr schöne weiche, elegante Merlot-Nase. Viel Schwarzkirsche, Mango an der Seite. Frisch und trotzdem sehr geschmeidig. Elegantes Tanningerüst. In der Nase sehr fein. Auch im Mund total polierte Tannine. Nichts Grobes, nichts Grünes, alles fein und schick. Eine wahnsinnige Frische in wirklich hoher Reife. Der Wein hat eine ähnlich hohe Reife wie ich das zuvor bei L´Evangile hatte. Also schwarze Kirsche mit samtig-seidigen Tannine und einer großen Üppigkeit. Und dann kommt die Säure, dann kommt die Frische. Zitronengras mit Orangenzesten, viel Salz und Mineralität. Sehr gelungener Angelus. Vielleich ist es sogar ein ganz großer Angelus. Jedenfalls ist die Intensität beeindruckend, die Reife und die Weichheit aber auch. Niemals fett, eher fein, ja poliert und sehr lang. Schicker schwarzfruchtiger, schlanker und in der Mitte durchaus fleischiger und kraftvoller Angelus. Viele sprechen vom Best Ever. Ich weiß es nicht, ich fand 2018 auch grandios. Ich finde 2019 wunderbar. Und er hat diesen Kick mehr an Frische. Ein toller Wein allemal! 99-100/100

Parker über: Chateau Angelus 1er Gr.Cr.Cl. A

-- Parker: Composed of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 Angélus was harvested from the 13th of September until the 4th of October. Deep garnet-purple colored, it sashays out of the glass with gregarious scents of Morello cherries, lilacs, chocolate box and potpourri with a core of Black Forest cake, blueberry crumble, fragrant soil and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the intensity on the palate builds from delicate, beguiling nuances with ethereal weight to a full-on fireworks display of flavor sparks, framed by fantastic freshness and very finely pixilated tannins, finishing long, layered and invigorating. 97-99/100

Suckling über: Chateau Angelus 1er Gr.Cr.Cl. A

-- Suckling: Redcurrants, sweet tobacco and flowers with some sandalwood. Very perfumed and floral. So pure. Full-bodied, yet so refined and layered, with a soft, compact palate and a crushed-velvet mouth-feel. Poised fruit at the end, together with fresh, rare wood and a light chocolate undertone to the aftertaste. This is open, yet there’s so much in reserve. 60% merlot and 40% cabernet franc. Leave it in the cellar for at least eight years. Try after 2029. 98/100

Decanter über: Chateau Angelus 1er Gr.Cr.Cl. A

-- Decanter: Beautifully expressive nose, really so welcoming with hints of sweet red cherries, raspberries, milk chocolate and touches of perfume too - soft but really defined. On the palate there is such charming grip from the tannins and flavour that just takes hold straight away but not in an overly dominating way. It's smooth but precise, driven from start to finish. Softly chewy tannins coat the tongue with black fruit and some creaminess alongside excellent acidity that gives a mouthwateringly fresh and cooling aspect underneath the ripe red and black fruit flavours. This has real life and energy, bright with clear complexity and layers of fruit, oak and terroir that comes across as a spicy but also wet stone, mineral undertone. Seriously good. You almost want to drink this now and just capture all the elements going on but they'll continue to soften and integrate over time and also let the beautiful Cabernet Franc elements integrate and come more into play over time. A success in 2019. Drinking window: 2028-2050. 98/100

Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateau Angelus 1er Gr.Cr.Cl. A

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Based on a final blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 Château Angélus is knockout stuff, and while I'm not sure it matches the perfect 2018, it's not far off. Gorgeous notes of redcurrants, blueberries, sandalwood, dried flowers, vanilla, and forest floor are just some of its nuances, and it hits the palate with medium to full body, a perfectly balanced, seamless mouthfeel, beautifully ripe tannins, and a great, great finish. It doesn't have the sheer weight or richness of, say, the 1998, 2000, 2005, or even the 2009, but it doesn't lack for intensity or power, and it’s just a beautiful example of modern-day Saint-Emilion. It's already approachable (this was best on day two) yet will keep for another 30+ years. 98/100

Wine Cellar Insider über: Chateau Angelus 1er Gr.Cr.Cl. A

-- Wine Cellar Insider: Deep, almost opaque ruby in color, the wine loads you up with flowers, licorice, smoke, wet earth, spice, vanilla along with red with black fruits on the nose. Classically styled,( in a good way,) the wine is precise, focused, energetic and pure. Silk with structure are what you notice on the palate along with multiple layers of perfectly ripe, concentrated plums, cherries and blackberries that linger and expand. The wine was made from blending 60% Merlot with 40% Cabernet Franc reaching 14.5 Alcohol with a pH of 3.65. The wine is aging in 100% new, French oak, however, 40% of the Cabernet Franc is aged in foudres, allowing the oak to have almost finished integrating into the wine. The harvest took place September 21-October 9. 97-99/100

Gerstl über: Chateau Angelus 1er Gr.Cr.Cl. A

-- Gerstl: Der Duft ist klassisch Angélus, schwarzbeerig, konzentriert, reich, gewaltig intensiv und wunderbar aus der Tiefe kommend, da sind 1000 Raffinessen, die sich zu einem Duft von einzigartiger Schönheit verbinden, ein Traum. Wow, Angélus wird immer eleganter, da sind schon fast burgundische Feinheiten in diesem monumentalen Kraftpaket. DieTannine sind von exzellenter Qualität, da ist vibrierende Sinnlichkeit, der Wein schwebt förmlich davon, füllt aber den Gaumen mit himmlischen Aromen, das ist ein echtes Wunderwerk. 20/20

Weingut über: Chateau Angelus 1er Gr.Cr.Cl. A

-- Weingut: 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 enve- loping tannins are cashmere-like in texture. The finish, thanks to the homogenously high quality of the Cabernet Franc, 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 is a wine that will go down as one of the great Angélus vintages.
