Description

A precise Saint-Emilion Second Wine with a beautiful aromatic palette

The estate

Château Angélus is one of the prestigious Saint-Émilion Premier Grand Cru Classé A. This legendary estate was founded in 1782 and, for 8 generations, the de Boüard de Laforest family has carefully guarded its exceptional legacy. Carillon d'Angélus is the second wine of Château Angélus.

The vineyard

Carillon d'Angélus 2021 is a Saint-Emilion wine that stems from an 18-hectare vineyard whose plots are spread over clay, clay-sand-limestone and well-drained soils. The property is committed to the protection of its environment and is in the process of converting to organic farming. The vineyard boasts a High Environmental Value level 3 certificate.

The vintage

A mild, rainy winter preceded a period of frost during spring, followed by a particularly wet episode which led to a strong mildew pressure that affected the vineyard. The mild conditions from mid-August until the end of the harvest, along with the teams’ diligence, were ideal and helped to refine the ripeness levels and preserve the vineyard’s healthy condition. Despite low yields, the perfectly-ripe grapes showcase a balanced, fruity and fresh expression with smooth, fine tannins. This 2021 vintage has left its mark on the history of the estate, as for the first time in the history of Angélus the blend is composed of 60% Cabernet Franc.

Vinification and ageing

Vinification is carried out in inverted truncated stainless steel vats, with gravity-fed vatting and extraction. Pre-fermentation maceration precedes alcoholic fermentation followed by post-fermentation maceration lasting between 1 to 3 weeks. 50% of the wine is placed in barrels as soon as it is run off and following malolactic fermentation for the remaining 50%. Aged for 16 months in barrels, 60% of which are new and 40% in second-fill barrels.

The blend

Merlot (80%)

Cabernet Franc (20%)
