Le Carillon d’Angélus 2021
Grand Cru Classé
€ 110.11/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate – 90-92+/100
Now benefiting from its own dedicated winery, the 2021 Le Carillon d’Angélus is no longer a “second wine” per se, but rather draws on some 25 hectares of dedicated vineyards, emphasizing Merlot from the cool terroirs of Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, complemented by holdings in the gravelly Figeac sector and on clay soils near Angélus itself—with anything that doesn’t make the cut relegated to the No. 3 d’Angélus. Exhibiting aromas of raspberries, plums, warm spices and nicely integrated new oak, it’s medium to full-bodied, supple and polished, with lively acids, refined tannins and a long, penetrating finish.
Vinous – Neil Martin – 91-93/100
The 2021 Le Carillon d’Angélus offers a mixture of red and black fruit on
the nose, hints of cedar and clove, and even a touch of pain d’épices. The
palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, a fine bead of acidity, good
weight and freshness and a suave and very harmonious finish. I have
remarked on the melioration of Carillon in the last two years, and this
continues that trend.
