The pure delicacy of an elegantly majestic Saint-Émilion

In the footsteps of Angélus’ first wine, Carillon d'Angélus has become a symbolic wine on the Right Bank in the Bordeaux region. First made as the 1987 vintage with its own unique personality, it faithfully represents the style that reflects the excellence of the iconic Château Angélus, a First Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion.

Following the Angélus philosophy, the Carillon d'Angélus 2017 has been developed with the utmost respect for its terroir through perfectly precise vinifications and ageing that are adapted to express each variety.

The blend pays tribute to the Right Bank’s black grape variety, so the Carillon d'Angélus 2017 expresses all the smoothness and opulence of Merlot (90%) with the elegance of Cabernet Franc (10%) that brings finesse to distinguish the wine.

With its beautiful dark colour, the Carillon d'Angélus 2017 instantly charms with its bewitching aromatic bouquet. The nose discovers ample and pure fresh fruit aromas. The palate starts with a sumptuous attack that reveals the magnitude of the vintage’s personality. The generous concentration extends to a powerful finish that ends in elegance and harmony.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Le Carillon d'Angélus is very deep purple-black in color and features a lovely core of crushed black cherries, blackberries and blueberries with touches of violets and cedar chest plus a waft of cinnamon stick. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and fresh with soft tannins and plenty of juicy fruit, finishing on a peppery note.
