    A generous and delicious Saint-Emilion.

    It was something winemakers had never seen in their memory: three months without water. With beneficial rains mid-September, and the remarkable Indian summer that followed, the Chateau Angelus team took a calm, leisurely approach to their harvest (lasting from the 4th to the 21st of October), allowing their Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon to reach their optimal maturity. The 2016 Carillon d'Angelus, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, is a wonderful expression of the exceptional character of this vintage.

    The coulour is dense and deep. A plenty of small black fruit on the 2016 Carillon of Angelus nose so refreshing. On the palate, the attack is sensual, voluptuous and smooth. The structure is refined and precise thanks to successful Cabernets Francs bringing elegance. The tasting ends is full of tension and fruits.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2016 Le Carillon d'Angélus is blended of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, aged 16 months in 50% new French oak. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it strides confidently out of the glass with pure, polished black cherries, fresh blackberries and black raspberry scents with nuances of unsmoked cigars, hoisin, black truffles and wet stones plus a waft of pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has great elegance and sophistication, with the lively red and black fruit flavors adeptly structured with soft, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing on a lingering earthy note.
