But it is the palate, with its rich, pure, ripe fruits, espresso, spice-box and silky, sweet, fresh plums that steal the show. Long, plush and polished, with layers of chocolate-covered cherries that go on and on, clearly, this is a new level of quality for Carillon d' Angélus. Enjoy this while waiting for Chateau Angelus to mature. The wine blends 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.

(JS 94-95 points) This is very fine and racy with refined tannins that are long and really precise. It’s medium-bodied with a lovely, creamy texture. Really long and bright.

The palate is well balanced with a lovely bead of acidity that slices through the pure blackberry and raspberry fruit. I cannot recall a Carillon as precise as this, particularly on the finish. Just a superb Deuxième Vin. -- Neal Martin

Medium-bodied on the palate, it has wonderful tannins, nicely integrated acidity, and a clean, lengthy finish. It's a beautiful wine.

This is a fairly different blend than you would find in Carillon a few years ago, when there was more Cabernet Franc. Now, with new plots, you can expect it to be more Merlot-focused going forward, setting it clearly apart from the main estate wine. Yields around 40hl/ha. 3.5pH, 60% new oak.

The medium-bodied palate has lovely freshness and an approachable, soft texture framing the crunchy black fruits, finishing long and savory.
