99 Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate (March 2019)

Blended of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet colored 2009 Angélus sings of blackberry preserves, warm black cherries, stewed plums and dried herbs with hints of Chinese five spice, fragrant earth, truffles and new leather. Full, rich, spicy and decadent in the mouth, it has a plush, velvety texture and well-knit freshness, finishing very long with tons of spicy layers.

96 Neal Martin, Vinous (March 2019)

The 2009 Angélus has a very refined bouquet with a mixture of red and black fruit, quite lavish in style with hints of crushed violet developing in the glass. You cannot help but be taken by the purity of this Angélus. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe and supple tannin, well judged acidity, beautifully balanced with supremely well integrated oak towards the finish.

This is a wonderful Angélus that should give another two or three decades of drinking pleasure. Tasted at BI Wines & Spirits' Ten Year On tasting.

To compare with the 2015, proprietor Hubert de Boüard opened a bottle of his 2009 Angelus and the similarities between the two vintages are obvious. It too is a massive, opulent, full-bodied effort that’s loaded with notions of blackberry liqueur, chocolate, roasted herbs and licorice, and it has a sexy, layered style that just begs to be drunk. This monster Saint-Emilion checks in just behind the otherworldly 2005 and is neck and neck with the 2015, both of which are young and need bottle age.
