Le Carillon de L'Angelus 2020
Carillon d’Angélus was first released in the 1987 vintage. Over the years it has acquired its very own identity. Reflecting the high, rigorous standards of our teams, the wine is a variable blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon selected from different Saint-Emilion terroirs. The vinification and ageing techniques are adapted with precision to its particular style.
A superb wine that is so good, it is difficult to believe it is a second wine! Here, you find a lush, opulent, silky wine loaded with black cherries, licorice, plums, espresso, flowers and a touch of chocolate. The fruits are sweet, fresh, and vibrant, providing a finish that is energetic, as well as luscious. You can enjoy this on release, or let it age for additional nuances while waiting for its big sister to age and develop. Drink from 2023-2037.
