A dazzling effort, the 1998 boasts an opaque purple color in addition to an exceptional bouquet of smoke, licorice, plums, black raspberries, and blackberries. As the wine sits in the glass, coffee and chocolate also emerge. Full-bodied, flamboyant, well-delineated, and beautifully balanced as well as layered, with well-integrated tannin in the powerful, rich finish, this 1998 will be at its best between 2003-2020.

Among the largest of the Grand Crus of Saint Emilion, Angelus was for many years rather underrated. However, since Hubert de Bouard took control in the early 1980s, everything about the estate has improved - most importantly, the wine. Today Angelus has a justifiably fine reputation.
