Description
Vintage 2017 "L'ÉCLATANT" - The Brilliant. The wine is deep red in color, while on the nose it shows immediate charm with pure aromas full of fruit. On the palate, the tannins are tight but silky smooth, precise and in good balance with a fruity flesh and a great freshness that gives energy and delicious taste. 2017 at Angélus is both harmonious and bursting with fruit flavor.
 
After a very favorable start to the growing season with very early bud breakage, the vine cycle was delayed at the end of April by a frost that hit the Bordeaux region very hard. At Angelus, where nature was kind, this sad episode was largely spared. However, considerable selection work was done in the small area affected by the frost. The remainder of the season went wonderfully smoothly with excellent flowering followed by a very hot month of June which boosted the vines' energy levels and gave them the strength they needed to develop high quality grapes. A fairly cool but dry summer allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly, promoting the aromatic expression of fresh fruit. The end of the summer was a bit rainy; But when the grapes were already ripe, harvesting started on September 13!
