A Fruity and Dense Grand Cru from Saint-Emilion

Nicknamed "The Phoenix," the 2018 vintage marks an exceptional year in the history of Chateau Angelus, an emblematic Premier Grand Cru Classe A of Saint-Emilion, located on the Right Bank of Bordeaux.

The vegetative cycle of the vine was quite distressed in the beginning, a source of great concern for the vine growers, until mid-July. The climatic conditions that followed and continued until the date of the harvest allowed the grapes to ripen fully, while maintaining a nice acidity and developing velvety tannins.

2018 was also the first vintage in the organic conversion cycle that the property is currently undergoing.

The Carillon d’Angelus 2018 of Chateau Angelus is made from a blend of Merlot (65%) and Cabernet Franc (35%).

Through its unique identity, the Carillon d'Angelus 2018 expresses all of the characteristics typical of its exceptional terroir of origin. First, this wine reveals a deep color. The bouquet seduces the nose with its intense aromatic expression, resplendent with bright, fresh fruit and developing notes of wild berries and cherries. The palate already displays a superb texture and density, structured by palate-coating tannins, stretching into a very persistent finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Le Carillon d'Angélus comes bounding out of the glass with bold notes of crushed blackberries, black raspberries and wild blueberries plus hints of spice box, damp soil, smoked meats and fallen leaves plus a waft of menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating black and blue fruits with firm, rounded tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long and earthy.
