Marks and reviews
Château Angélus is one of Saint- Émilion’s prestigious Premier Grand Cru Classés "A." This legendary estate on Bordeaux’s Right Bank was founded in 1782 and, for eight generations, the Boüard de Laforest family has overseen this exceptional heritage.
Carillon d’Angélus, the estate’s Second Wine, is a Saint-Émilion wine that stems from an 18-hectare vineyard where the plots are spread over clay and clay-sand-limestone soils and draining soils.
2015 was a year of ideal conditions throughout the growing season. The spring saw an even flowering before rainy spells that advanced the best development of the vineyard. Despite particularly dry conditions in June and July, the veraison was perfect. August was mild and with scattered restorative rains, which helped along ideal development of the grapes. The alternation of sunny days and cool nights during September, with scattered rain, were ideal conditions to refine the ripeness.
