2015 is a blessed, dreamed year, from the spring to the collection the climatology has been favorable. Each stage took place in optimal conditions: a homogeneous flowering, then the necessary rainfall for the development of the plant before very dry June and July. The veraison goes on marvellously. The seeds start to ripen very early. The month of August with some opportune rains and mild temperatures allowed the vine to develop well and the grapes to ripen harmoniously. The beautiful days and cool nights of September accompanied by a few showers favoured the maturation of the tannins. The grapes are simply magnificent, a rare and sublime moment.
The perfect sanitary state of the vineyard and the superb climatic conditions at the beginning of autumn allowed us to harvest magnificent grapes for ... almost a month!
The Merlots of Angelus are harvested from September 22nd ripe, but not too much, crisp, on the fruit and with a lot of freshness.
The Cabernets Francs, nuggets of Angelus, also magnificent, are harvested from October 8th. Here, if they do not reign supreme, they represent almost half of the planted surface. They bring elegance, finesse and density with a silky side and will greatly contribute to sublimate this new vintage.
2015 is an excellent vintage for Angelus. Excellent by the subtle balance between power and refinement: intense aromas of ripe and crunchy fruits, a smooth and frank attack, tight and velvety tannins, great purity. We find here the charm of a solar vintage, with a touch of flamboyant classicism, baroque one might say, in harmony with the elegance and race brought by the freshness and tension of the persistent finish.
