The 1989 Angélus is a vintage that I have tasted multiple times from various formats. It remains one of my favorite of that era. Still quite deep in color, it has a glorious, almost hubristic bouquet of layers of lush black cherries, cedar, sage and meat juice aromas as it moves assuredly into its secondary phase. The palate has always been very harmonious and smooth, the tannins finer than preceding vintages. There is lovely grip here, and black truffle and smoky notes appear on the finish. A quite marvelous Château Angélus. Tasted at the château. (Neal Martin, Vinous, September 2019)

One of my favorite Bordeaux producers that came from an owc purchased on futures. Still very youthful with many years ahead showing red & black fruits with cassis & plum, cedar, leather, pencil shavings, licorice, touch of vanilla & tobacco.
