New Angélus

The news out of Bordeaux today has not just been about international labels. Château Angélus is releasing a new wine as well. 

“Hommage à Elisabeth Bouchet” is a 100% Cabernet Franc from some of the oldest vines at the estate. The cuvée will only be made in “exceptional” years and will be another addition to the autumn release schedule. 

The 2016, 2018 and 2019 have so far been produced with the 2016 due to be released today. Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW rated it 100-points in The Wine Advocate, saying it was a “masterpiece”.
