The 2015 Le Carillon d'Angélus is a very pretty wine with plenty of savory and floral overtones from the Cabernets that are especially prominent in the blend. Dried cherry, tobacco, mint and crushed flowers give the wine its lifted, distinctively midweight personality. The Carillon is best described as a second wine from Angélus rather than the second wine of Angélus, as it really has little in common stylistically with the Grand Vin. Drink it over the next few years. (AG)
Composed of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 Le Carillon d'Angelus sports a medium to deep garnet-purple color and a very spicy nose of cloves, cinnamon and fenugreek over core of warm red fruits and freshly crushed blackberries plus wafts of rose hips and fragrant earth. Medium to full-bodied, very fresh and delicate in the mouth, it offers soft tannins with a savory, slightly chewy finish. (LPB)
This wine comes from part of the Angélus estate that is not classified, as well as wines that are not considered right for Château Angélus. The result is an accessible, ripe wine packed with red fruits, soft tannins and attractive, juicy acidity. (RV)
Brambly and spicy mixed berry fruits as well as vanillin and lighter chocolate aromas lead into a palate with soft, supple fleshy appeal and an impressively fresh finish. Try from 2020.
