92pts James Suckling

Brambly and spicy mixed berry fruits as well as vanillin and lighter chocolate aromas lead into a palate with soft, supple fleshy appeal and an impressively fresh finish. Try from 2020.

92pts Wine Enthusiast

This wine comes from part of the Angélus estate that is not classified, as well as wines that are not considered right for Château Angélus. The result is an accessible, ripe wine packed with red fruits, soft tannins and attractive, juicy acidity.

90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Composed of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the Le Carillon d'Angelus sports a medium to deep garnet-purple color and a very spicy nose of cloves, cinnamon and fenugreek over core of warm red fruits and freshly crushed blackberries plus wafts of rose hips and fragrant earth. Medium to full-bodied, very fresh and delicate in the mouth, it offers soft tannins with a savory, slightly chewy finish.

Winery Notes

The vineyard of Chateau Angélus is situated in a natural amphitheatre overlooked by the three Saint-Emilion churches. In the middle of this special site, the sounds were amplified and the angelus bells could be heard ringing in the morning, at midday and in the evening. They cadenced the working day in the vineyards and villages, calling the men and women to stop their labours for a few minutes and pray.

Less than a kilometre from the famous Saint-Emilion bell tower, situated on the much-vaunted south-facing “foot of the hill”, Angélus has been the life work of eight generations of the Boüard de Laforest family.
