2015 Saint-Emilion, Second Wine from Chateau Angelus, Bordeaux.
In 1987, Chateau Angelus created its Second Wine: the Carillon d'Angelus. This Second Wine represents 20% of the property production. This 2015 Saint-Emilion is 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wine displays a bright ruby colour. The nose offers a lovely bouquet of fresh red berries. The 2015 Carillon d'Angelus reveals a well-structured attack and mid-palate with rather tight and lush tannins. The good finish is seductive.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
