Opportunities in Angélus back vintages
As discussed in our analysis, the 2022 release was one of the most expensive vintages on the market. Only the 2000, 2005 and 2012 vintages are more expensive.
As such, buyers looking for value have plenty of alternatives. For example, the 2015, 2016 and 2019 vintages, which received 97 points from Neal Martin, all come at a significantly lower price than the 2022 release.
Comparing best value
All the wines have risen in price over the past three years. Of them, the 2019 vintage has risen the most, up 22.2% since July 2020.
Neal Martin (Vinous) awarded the 2019 Angélus 97 points and described it as ‘taut and crisp,’ with a ‘wonderful tension and minéralité on the finish.’
