We are very pleased to announce the start of the highly anticipated 2020 Bordeaux En-Primeur campaign, one which promises to be as exciting as it is different in our new post-brexit, mid-covid world.
Not having had the chance to travel to Bordeaux to taste we are very reliant on several key factors namely; pedigree, reputation, consistency and critics and the critics seem to like it.
JAMES SUCKLING 94-95 points
"This is very fine and racy with refined tannins that are long and really precise. It’s medium-bodied with a lovely, creamy texture. Really long and bright."
JANCIS ROBINSON 16.5 points
"Drink: 2026 - 2036 - 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc. Includes the unclassified parcels of Angélus as well as those in St-Christophe-des-Bardes and in proximity to Figeac. Vinified in the new cellar in St-Magne-de-Castillon. Cask sample.
Suave and concentrated with very fine tannins providing a textural plus and impressive length on the finish. Aromatically subdued, the oak (prise de bois) dominating at present. But serious and precise with a tannic frame for ageing."

Tasted by Jane Anson(at Primeur week tastings in Bordeaux, 01 May 2021)
"Rich, seductive and powerful with fleshy Merlot fruit, intense with a kick of spice. This is a fairly different blend than you would find in Carillon a few years ago, when there was more Cabernet Franc. Now, with new plots, you can expect it to be more Merlot-focused going forward, setting it clearly apart from the main estate wine. Yields around 40hl/ha. 3.5pH, 60% new oak. Drinking Window 2023 - 2038."
