Château Angelus Premier Grand Cru Classé de Saint-Émilion 2009 Bordeaux Red Wine, $292.49-$453.99, 97 points, poured opaque ruby with a transition to a small band of sunburst orange/red toward the broad clear circumferential rim and leggy glass wall.
The bouquet of roses, coffee, blueberry and black fruit with sea breezes was astounding, and carried over onto the palate with mint, eucalyptus, licorice, and cola flavors.
Having a full satin-like body with good acidity and restrained powerful tannin which accelerated deep into the very long finish of gathering spice and some heat from the 14.5% alcohol.
A special occasion wine for my special guest tonight, and worth every memory and every penny!
