Although Neal Martin (Vinous) has not yet released his scores for En Primeur 2022, the wine received 96-98 points from William Kelley (Wine Advocate).
James Suckling gave it a barrel range of 98-99 points, praising the ‘extremely fine tannins with length and beauty that show incredible depth’.
Today’s release is one of the most expensive vintages on the market. Currently, 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.
Chateau Angélus’s second label, Carillon d’Angélus 2022, has also been released at €90 per bottle ex-négociant.
