Critic Notes

Fascinating that this second wine of L’Angelus is 90% merlot and is so tight and structured. Full-bodied, tight and layered with linear tannins and freshness. Focused and serious.

Score: 93-94/100James Suckling

The second wine of the estate is the 2017 Angélus Le Carillon d'Angélus, which is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc in 2017. This surprisingly deep, medium to full-bodied, rich second wine has rocking notes of blue fruits, violets, spring flowers and a hint of minerality. It’s a seriously good second wine in a vintage that was hard on second wines.

Score: 91-93/100Jeb Dunnuck

Inky crimson. Dark with fruit and graphite, ripe but pure and fresh. Sweet spice and chocolate on the palate from the oak but it doesn't dampen the very pure dark fruit. Peppery fresh finish. Dry, moreish and the juice seeps out on the finish. (JH)

Score: 16.5-17/20Jancis RobinsonDrinking Window: Drink 2025-2035

Composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Le Carillon d'Angelus is very deep purple-black in color and features a lovely core of crushed black cherries, blackberries and blueberries with touches of violets and cedar chest plus a waft of cinnamon stick. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and fresh with soft tannins and plenty of juicy fruit, finishing on a peppery note. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com
