2020 Le Carillon de l'Angélus  (St. Émilion) 95

The nose, with its smoke, savory herbs, flowers, black plums, licorice and espresso gets you into the mood. But it is the palate, with its rich, pure, ripe fruits, espresso, spice-box and silky, sweet, fresh plums that steal the show. Long, plush and polished, with layers of chocolate-covered cherries that go on and on, clearly, this is a new level of quality for Carillon d' Angélus. Enjoy this while waiting for Chateau Angelus to mature. The wine blends 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. 94-96 Pts
