Tasting Notes

The second wine of Château Angelus, the 2019 Le Carillon D'Angelus is Merlot-dominated yet includes 10% Cabernet Franc. It's a more backward, serious wine compared to the fleshy, upfront N3 and offers a deep purple hue as well as impressive crème de cassis, crushed stone, chocolate, graphite, and violet aromas and flavors. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully textured, with the vintage's supple, sweet tannins, this brilliant second wine will compete with most châteaux grand vin.

Composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 Le Carillon d'Angélus is aging in French oak barrels, 60% new. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it springs from the glass with floral notes of lavender and red roses with a baking spice undercurrent and a core of redcurrant jelly, blackberry pie, black raspberries and cracked black pepper. Medium-bodied, the palate is wonderfully elegant and refreshing with loads of mineral-laced black fruit layers and a firm, fine-grained frame, finishing with great energy and bags of perfume.

The 2019 Le Carillon d'Angélus is broad, ample and enveloping. There is plenty of fruit richness, but a good bit of tannin, too. Far from an easygoing second wine, the Carillon is going to need a few years to come together. Inky dark fruit, spice, menthol and licorice build into a finish endowed with real weight and gravitas. Le Carillon is a blend taken from vineyards in three locations; Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, the Cheval Blanc/Figeac sector and around the château. It is a serious medium-range offering from Angélus.
