"91-93 points: A somewhat atypical Angelus given the high percentage of Cabernet Franc (47%, along with 50% merlot and 3% cabernet sauvignon), this 2002 displays great class as well as potential complexity. Its blue/purple color is accompanied by a big, elegant, sweet wine that combines finesse with power and authority. Because of the high amount of Cabernet Franc, it may turn out to be one of the most aromatically compelling Angelus offerings to date. There is also robust tannin apparent in the long medium to full-bodied finish. It is unquestionably one of St Emilion's most complete, concentrated, and provocative wines of 2002. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020." Best 2008-2020

91 points "Impressive dark color for the vintage, with lots of grapey vanilla and black licorice aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins. Wild finish. Tastes like cinnamon and cardamon. Well done." Best 2007-
