The En Primeur period is almost over, the opportunity for us to introduce Angélus new building: the Carillon d’Angélus and N°3 d’Angélus winery located at Saint-Magne-de-Castillon.
Technical, environmental and æsthetic considerations were given equal importance in the design of this new state-of-the-art winery, which has been equipped with the finest wine-making tools. The building is half-underground and features a green roof. The new facilities include a harvest reception area with a laser optical sorting line, a vinification room, a cellar for the malo-lactic fermentation and a barrel cellar.
The vinification cellar with its 18 inverted tronconic vats features a vat-filling system using hoists and a vat elevator, allowing 100% gravity-flow. Nearby, nitrogen-generating equipments provide permanent protection for the wines and control oxygen levels both during the vinification and the ageing process.
Thanks to these new tools, our teams were able to develop Carillon d'Angélus 2019 with renewed precision, expressing in an ever-purer way the quality of the terroirs it comes from.
CARILLON D’ANGÉLUS 2019 TASTING NOTES
Deep-coloured with aromas of ripe, fresh fruit on the nose enhanced by subtle oak notes. Already mellow on the palate, the wine reveals a good tannic structure underpinned by pleasant acidity, a key factor for good ageing potential.
Blend : 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc
