  • The wine has been released at £3,048 per 12×75 (£850 x6) SEP.

  • The new vintage has been scored 98-99 by James Suckling, who said it was “refined” and “sophisticated”.

Château Angélus 2020 has been released En Primeur at €260 per bottle ex-négociant, up 13% on the 2019’s opening price of €230. It is being offered by the international trade for £3,048 per 12×75, up 7% on the 2019 release of £2,844 per case.

The wine has garnered some strong scores from critics so far, with a 98-99-point rating from James Suckling, an 18 from JancisRobinson.com and a 97 from Jane Anson at Decanter who called it a, “sleek, poised, and confidently-constructed Angélus”.

Fair Value

At its current price, however, by our fair value methodology it will need a strong score from benchmark critic Neal Martin, at least a 97, to look well-positioned.

At present there are several back vintages that would appear to offer at least comparable if not better value, for example the 2015 and 2019 vintages which Martin rated 97, with current Market Prices of £2,500 and £2,816 per dozen respectively.

The 96-point 2014 and 2016, likewise, have Market Prices of £2,320 and £2,800 per 12.
