1985 Angélus, St-Emilion

SKU #951478 Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark De Boüard’s first vintage, and already aged on the lees. Sweet and rather gorgeous and with some freshness. Kerpow! There is a bit of decay but also liquorice. Inner quote mark (11/2011)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very concentrated, with plum and cassis character and a hint of nuts. It's full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and loads of coffee and fruit on the finish. Better after 1996. Inner quote mark (10/1994)

K&L Notes

90 points Neal Martin for Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Farr Vintners’ vertical from ex-chateau magnum. The 1985 has declined since I tasted it five years ago, but it remains a very pleasant, fully mature Saint Emilion that needs to be consumed sooner rather than later. It has a Burgundian bouquet, a little diffuse with scents of field mushroom, light red berries and sous-bois. The palate displays fine definition but is beginning to run out of puff. There is a sight sharpness on the entry, chalky tannins with a smooth finish that lacks a little depth. Fine for the vintage. Tasted October 2011." (03/2012)
