    The 2020 Le Carillon d’Angélus has a compact, tight bouquet that needs more coaxing than I anticipated, almost reluctantly offering brambly black fruit, blueberry, incense and light potpourri scents. The palate is well balanced with a lovely bead of acidity that slices through the pure blackberry and raspberry fruit. I cannot recall a Carillon as precise as this, particularly on the finish. Just a superb Deuxième Vin. Drink 2024 - 2038

    The 2020 Le Carillon d'Angélus is another very pretty, expressive wine from the de Boüard family. Bright floral notes open first, showing off the wine's aromatic presence. Surprisingly elegant for the year, the Carillon impresses with its refined personality. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit and cedar linger on the vibrant, persistent finish. Aging is 60% in new oak and 40% in stainless steel. Carillon continues to improve, some of that is likely attributable to a new cellar that was recently completed for this wine and the No. 3. Le Carillon is a blend taken from vineyards in three locations; Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, the Cheval Blanc/Figeac sector and around the château. The 2020 is aging in 60% new oak and 40% steel. Drink 2025 - 2040

    The nose, with its smoke, savory herbs, flowers, black plums, licorice and espresso gets you into the mood. But it is the palate, with its rich, pure, ripe fruits, espresso, spice-box and silky, sweet, fresh plums that steal the show. Long, plush and polished, with layers of chocolate-covered cherries that go on and on, clearly, this is a new level of quality for Carillon d' Angélus. Enjoy this while waiting for Chateau Angelus to mature. The wine blends 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.

    The 2020 Le Carillon D'Angélus bring things up a notch, offering wonderful purity of fruit as well as notes black cherries, cassis, graphite, and leafy herbs. Medium-bodied on the palate, it has wonderful tannins, nicely integrated acidity, and a clean, lengthy finish. It's a beautiful wine.

    With a stunningly designed, new facility in which to make Carillon and also No.3, the quality of these two wines has become even more heightened and in 2020 Carillon takes flamboyance to a new level. With smoky oak notes on the nose and obvious exoticism on the palate, this wine has a grand flavour and it shows a firm set of tannins, too. Drawing on fruit from three distinct soil types there is a layering of flavour here which I have not seen before in this wine. A controlled extraction has meant that alongside the deep, black fruit notes there is freshness and elegance, too.

Château Angélus

Owned by the de Bouard de Laforest family for years, it is only since the mid 1980s that this château has truly hit its potential. Hubert de Bouard, with the assistance of consulting oenologist, Michel Rolland, is making some of the finest wines in St Emilion. The château is particularly notable for producing excellent wines even in challenging vintages which for many is the true testament of quality.
