Le Carillon de l'Angelus 2015, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 750ml
Chateau Angelus is not far from the landmark of the clock tower in St Emilion, beside the famous pied de cote slope. Chateau Angelus is the result of the four generations of Bouard de Laforest's hard work. The history of the winery can be traced back to the beginning of the last century. After that, the Bouard de Laforest family slowly increased the area of the winery bit by bit, and then it has today's scale. The winery is currently managed by Hubert de Bouard de Laforest.
Chateau Angelus is one of the first-class wineries in the Saint-Emilion region. It covers an area of 58 acres. The upper soil is a clay-lime layer, and the sandy lime layer is located next to the hillside. It is mainly planted with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. In addition to using traditional methods to make wine, Chateau Angelus also continuously improves its winemaking techniques to achieve perfection in every harvest and brewing. Therefore, it enjoys a high evaluation among wine critics and wine customers. Chateau Angelus and Pavie were promoted to Grand A-level winery in the latest Saint-Emilion appraisal in 2012.
Composed of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 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.
