92-93 JS / 90 WA / 90 JD / 90 JA / 90 DE

A tight, linear red with lots of currants, salt and cloves on the nose and palate. Really spicy. Medium-bodied with firm, polished tannins and a flavorful finish. A new wine from the owners of Chateau Angélus, from the area of Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux.-James Suckling

From south-facing holdings in the Castillon-Côtes-de-Bordeaux AOC that are declassified into generic Bordeaux, the 2020 Tempo d'Angélus exhibits aromas of sweet red berries and cherries, followed by a medium to full-bodied, pure and vibrant palate animated by lively acids and concluding with a chalky finish. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Coming from the Castillon region and 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2020 Tempo D'Angelus from the team at Angelus offers outstanding quality as well as the pure, balanced, vibrant style of the vintage. Ripe black raspberries, flowers, and lots of salty, mineral-like nuances define the aromatics, and this medium-bodied, elegant 2020 has ripe tannins and a great finish. It will drink well for 8-10 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Touch of reduction on first nose (this uses the Diam cork closure and is very much worked on the reductive side). Good energy, cool blue and red fruits, slightly austere but bright and cheerful with good tension, easy to recommend. 40% new oak, second vintage, from vines located in Castillon. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Strongly herbal on the nose which also shows soft black fruits. You can smell the limestone aspect, plus pencil lead, graphite, crayon and some green notes. Pure and clean, this has a lovely, bright and really quite marked acidity, vibrant and almost searing on the palate. Spiced and straight, a little bit of bite. Razor-sharp for the moment, a nice coolness to it. I love the straightness, very typical of its terroir. Focused and serious. Still structured, nicely built, a gourmand touch, tannins are integrated, providing support, but still quite a sleek frame in terms of drive from start to finish. Feels serious. - GH, Decanter
