Le Carillon d’Angelus 2014 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

(70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet franc) The nose is aromatic, fine and powerful. It reveals notes of mocha and slight notes of blackeberry, crunchy cassis, crunchy red fruits (cherry, strawberry), spices and espresso associated with a discreet hint of coffee, discreet hints of dark chocolate as well as a very slight hint of Sichuan pepper (very discreet) and cornflower. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, slightly gourmand and offers a beautiful minerailty, a slight acid frame, a slight tension as well as freshness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh strawberry, raspberry/red berries associated with slight hints of cassis, slight notes of blueberry as well as a discreet hint of toasted oak and a very discreet hint of chocolate. Tannins are well-built. Good length and persistence. There are slight hints of cacao/tonka bean on the finish/persistence.
