Chateau Tour Bayard L'Angelot Montagne-Saint-Emilion 2010
The 2010 ‘L’Angelot’ is a Malbec dominant blend, vinified in new barrel and aged in barrique; full-bodied and dark fruited, with gritty tannins and notes of oak spice. Organic methods and natural composts are used, bringing purity and terroir-reflection into the wine.
The Chateau Tour Bayard has only been in the family since 1956, but the Nicoletti-Richards have already demonstrated great skill in bringing out the best in the land. Current owners Fanny Nicoletti-Richard and Bruno Richard inherited the estate from Fanny’s parents, who purchased the domaine, but several generations of the family had already worked as vignerons at other estates in the region, so the Nicolettis were masters of their trade by the time they arrived at the chateau.
