?Only the second release of this cuvée (it was first produced in 2016 and will be produced in 2019 as well) the 2018 Château Angelus Hommage A Elisabeth Bouchet is 100% Cabernet Franc coming from a single parcel of vines averaging between 60-80 years in age. It was vinified in stainless steel and the aging spanned 18 months in new French oak. It's another magical wine from this château that somehow manages to marry serious power and richness with a sense of purity and elegance as well as complexity that's something to behold. Deep purple-hued it offers a sensational array of blackcurrant and cassis fruits intermixed with truffle spring flowers and a subtle meaty baking spice character that develops with time in the glass. Full-bodied on the palate it's flawlessly balanced has ultra-fine tannins and an expansive seamless heavenly mouthfeel. Everything is in the right place and it has perfectly integrated oak along with a gorgeous finish. There are just 849 bottles produced with a few larger formats so I expect this to be just about impossible to find in the marketplace (nor will it be cheap) but it's as fine a Saint-Emilion as has ever been made. It needs a decade of cellaring and I suspect it will have 40-50 years of overall longevity.?
