The 2020 is easily the best Carillon d’Angélus to date. The wine is beautifully balanced with fine-textured, fully resolved tannins and an impressive concentration of fruit – chocolate-coated redcurrants and blackberries. While it doesn’t have the freshness from the Cabernet Franc of Angélus (the blend being 90% Merlot here), it still remains mouth-watering. There’s a good volume of very juicy fruit on the palate, with an excellent textural finesse. Aged in 60% new oak and 40% one-year-old oak, it’s a great result.
