Angelus 2021 released

As part of this year’s Bordeaux En Primeur campaign, Château Angélus 2021 has been released at £1560 per case of 6, just slightly up on the 2020 release of £1524. Volumes released onto the market of the 2021 wines are significantly down on the 2020, so this makes it an interesting investment play. 

Neal Martin (Vinous) scored the new vintage 93-95 points, noting that the 60% Cabernet Franc component in the blend was ‘the highest percentage ever’. He added it was more understated than previous vintages and ‘deserves 4-5 years in bottle to show its true potential’. 

The Wine Advocate’s William Kelley said it was a ‘brilliant wine’ with ‘unprecedented purity and finesse’. He scored it 94-96+. 

Jane Anson concurred with Martin’s assessment that it is ‘less exuberant’ than recent vintages but still ‘classy and with presence’. She scored it 95-points.
