Region - St Emillion, Bordeaux, France Stéphanie de Boüard- Rivoal took over the reins of Chateau Angelus from her father, becoming the third woman to helm the 96 acres of St Emillon first-growth estate. She is the 8th generation of the Boüard de Laforest family who has owned the property for 235 years. The 2018 vintage is a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc and aged in new oak barriques and two new foudres (large barrels) to lower the impact of wood. Satin-textured, the wine shows complex aromas of cassis fruit, sandalwood, tobacco leaf, sweet coffee notes and bay leaf. The tannins are refined and impart remarkable structure to the wine. Medium to full body, this vintage is defined by its elegance and structure in every sip. One for the cellars, to try in five years. $664, Wine Clique, www.wine-clique.com.com.sg
