Winemaker Notes
Château Angélus 1988 has an exceptional aging time, you can of course drink it now but also let it age in the cellar until 2030. In the year 1988, winter and spring were wet, but the spring was particularly dry, thus promoting the concentration of tannins and color. The films of the grounds are then very thick. The wines are of a deep color, combining race and finesse with a sublime tannic structure very precise.

Rated 94 Points Wine Spectator
Incredibly rich and fruity, with chocolate and spice undertones. Full-bodied and extremely well concentrated, with big, velvety tannins and a long aftertaste of fruit and chocolaty vanilla.

Rated 91 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.
...full-throttle bouquet of licorice, spicy new oak, cassis, olives, and minerals. Full-bodied, deep, and concentrated, it offers excellent extract, and a long, heady, moderately tannic finish.
