Now picture me drinking from the same Chateau on last Friday night. Yes, we (my wine friends and me) had a vertical wine tasting on Chateau Angelus. A vertical wine tasting involves wines from different vintages but all the wines will come from the same winery. If the winery produces more than one type of wine you would select a single wine from that winery and taste multiple vintages of that wine. Thus that night, we had 8 different vintages of Angelus (1989,1990,1991,1994,1995,1996,1998&2000). Honestly, this is my first time doing a vertical wine tasting and I was rather excited about drinking from the same chateau as James Bond just like how I started my Smirnoff liking.
The Angélus vineyard, which totals 23.4 hectares, is situated on the famous côtes of St Emilion with the clay and limestone typical terroir typical of the region. Saint-Émilion is one of the principal red wine areas of
The older wines were decantered for a few hours.
We had good food, good wine, good company and the last thing to have was of course CIGARS! Mr.W is always our cigar supplier. He must be the one person that I know uses the most ziplock bags. He likes to store his cigars in these ziplock bags. We puffed the night away with a Habana cigar each.
