Wine Advocate

Now benefiting from its own dedicated winery, the 2021 Le Carillon d'Angélus is no longer a "second wine" per se, but rather draws on some 25 hectares of dedicated vineyards, emphasizing Merlot from the cool terroirs of Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, complemented by holdings in the gravelly Figeac sector and on clay soils near Angélus itself—with anything that doesn't make the cut relegated to the No. 3 d'Angélus. Exhibiting aromas of raspberries, plums, warm spices and nicely integrated new oak, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and polished, with lively acids, refined tannins and a long, penetrating finish.

Neal Martin

The 2021 Le Carillon d'Angélus offers a mixture of red and black fruit on the nose, hints of cedar and clove, and even a touch of pain d'épices. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, a fine bead of acidity, good weight and freshness and a suave and very harmonious finish. I have remarked on the melioration of Carillon in the last two years, and this continues that trend.

Jancis Robinson

Pure and fleshy with a tension running through the wine. Going through its prise de bois so rather hard and dry on the finish. Awkward but fresh and long. Should improve with élevage. (JL) 13.5%

Antonio Galloni

The 2021 Le Carillon d'Angélus opens with a burst of red/purplish fruit, spice, rose petal, lavender, mocha and new oak. Palpable energy drives the balance. The aromatics are broad and quite expressive, but on the palate, the 2021 remains strict, as the oak needs time to fully integrate. Let's see how this turns out. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2022

Jane Anson

A huge step up from No 3, you find far more depth through the palate here, with subdued power, black pepper and clove spice, sculpted, fresh and juicy with raspberry purée and gooseberry fruits. More graphite than I find in a normal year with this wine, and on-the-edge gunsmoke reduction, partly I am sure from the vintage, and partly from the added precision of the new 4,500m2 cellar. 60% new oak with the rest in stainless steel, 16hl/h yield.
