TASTING NOTES

"This is a really together second wine of Angélus with a tight and focused center palate of blackberries and hints of chocolate and hazelnuts. Firm and very fine tannins and a long and persistent finish." JamesSuckling.com

Rating: 94-95


"A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Le Carillon d'Angélus comes bounding out of the glass with bold notes of crushed blackberries, black raspberries and wild blueberries plus hints of spice box, damp soil, smoked meats and fallen leaves plus a waft of menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating black and blue fruits with firm, rounded tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long and earthy." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

"The 2018 Le Carillon d'Angélus is laced with striking floral/savory aromatics and brisk saline notes that complement a core of bright red-toned fruit. Pliant and supple, with notable purity and class, the 2018 is gorgeous today and benefits from an extra touch of Franc that did not go into the Grand Vin. Carillon is a blend of fruit from three sources: 7 hectares around the château, 5 hectares closer to Cheval Blanc and 3 hectares in the Saint Christophe des Bardes sector. It is especially fine in 2018 and could very well turn out to be an overachiever." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Deepest crimson. Dark, ripe and finely perfumed cassis and just a touch of oak sweetness on the nose. Lively fruit supported by light, chalky tannins. Definitely slimmer on the palate than many wines in this vintage but thus with greater elegance and refreshment. Chewy tannins but not in the least tough. Needs time but I like the restraint here." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
