2015 Saint Emilion

Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Saint Emilion & Satellites
Village Saint Emilion

Very slinky and cool, a good weight combined with a fine dry but flowing texture. Grown-up dark fruit expression, really this is very classy. Fruit remains fresh on the finish too. Rating: 91-92 L&S (Apr 2016)

In an excellent vintage for the Château’s Grand Vin, it’s no surprise that the second wine at Angélus is delicious too. The high percentage of Cabernet Franc gives the wine perfume and lift, complementing its polished tannins and fresh, well balanced finish. Drinking range: 2020 - 2028 Rating: 94 Tim Atkin MW, 2016)

50% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep and purple-tasting somehow. Just a little bit bitter on the end. Drinking range: 2024 - 2033 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - 2016)

The 2015 Le Carillon d'Angelus is a blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a perfumed, marine-tinged bouquet, the lifted cassis fruit tinged with seaweed. The palate is medium-bodied with silky tannin, very well-judged acidity and very harmonious. It is not a Carillon of enormous depth and therefore, it will drink 2-3 years after bottling, but it does have class and would probably show up many other Saint Emilion grand crus.

The 2015 Le Carillon d'Angélus is endowed with tremendous fruit intensity and power, especially for a second wine. A generous dose of Cabernet Franc adds aromatic lift throughout, but the Carillon remains voluptuous, intense and ready to provide plenty of near-term pleasure. The blend is 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Rating: 90-92 Antonio Galloni, 2016)

The second wine of Angélus, which also carries a lot of Cabernet Franc in this vintage, at 40%, the balance being 50% Merlot and 10% cabernet Sauvignon. This has a very pure style on the nose, which is fresh and quite pointed, pure and precise rather than plump or plush, fresh and bright. The palate is similarly precisely defined, fresh and cool, with a dry, defined, firm tannic backbone, wrapped around that pencil-drawn, sharply poised Merlot fruit. The Cabernet Franc doesn't make a great contribution to the character of the wine, despite making up a significant percentage of the blend, but the overall structure of the wine still feels very correct, with a chalky edge to the ripe tannins. Overall this is fresh, cool, savoury and taut, with lots of structure. I see fine potential here. Rating: 16-17/20 Chris Kissack, 2016)

A racy second wine with blackberry, blueberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. 50% merlot, 40% cabernet franc and 10% cabernet sauvignon. Rating: 92-93 James Suckling, 2016)
