DECANTER: "The colour is just beginning to soften around the edges at six years old, although primary raspberry and red cherry fruit are still very much in play on the palate. This is open and inviting, with tobacco, anis, black pepper spice, and eucalyptus notes on the finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2036"
JAMES SUCKLING: "Brambly and spicy mixed berry fruits as well as vanillin and lighter chocolate aromas lead into a palate with soft, supple fleshy appeal and an impressively fresh finish. Try from 2020."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Medium-bodied, finesse styled, dark black cherry, smoke, licorice and chocolate-filled wine that is ready for currently, soft, lush drinking today."
THE WINEADVOCATE: "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."
WINE ENTHUSIAST: "This wine comes from part of the Angélus estate that is not classified, as well as wines that are not considered right for Château Angélus. The result is an accessible, ripe wine packed with red fruits, soft tannins and attractive, juicy acidity. The wine will be ready to drink from 2024."
