CARILLON D'ANGELUS, 2018

SAINT-EMILION GRAND CRU

“2018 Le Carillon d'Angélus comes bounding out of the glass with bold notes of crushed blackberries, black raspberries and wild blueberries [...] 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.” - Wine Advocate

Histoire et anecdotes

Carillon d’Angélus is Château Angélus' second wine, first released with the 1987 vintage.

For eight generations, the Château has belonged to the de Broüard de Laforest family. The Angélus vineyard is located within a natural amphitheatre, which is dominated by the three churches of Saint-Emilion. In the heart of the special site, the sound is amplified and we formerly could hear the Angelus bells ring in the morning, at midday and in the evening. In 2012, the Château was classified “A” as Premier Grand Cru in the Saint-Emilion classification. Nowadays, Stéphanie de Boüard - Rivoal manages the estate.
