Château Angélus - Saint-Emilion
Château Angélus was so named because the bells (Angelus) of three surrounding churches (Mazerat, Saint-Martin de Mazerat et Saint-Emilion) could be heard ringing in unison from its vineyards.
Owned by the de Boüard de la Forest family from the 1700s, the estate has been unrelenting in its pursuit of excellence ever since.
First classified Grand Cru classé in 1954 and elevated to Premier Grand Cru Classé B in 1996 under the passionate management of Hubert de Boüard, it was awarded the highest classification, Premier Grand Gru Classe A in 2012, joining the elite châteaux Cheval Blanc and Ausone.
Hubert de Boüard is passionate in his goal to make "wines that give pleasure” that are elegant with soft tannins. Angelus has its own unique style: a wine that audaciously expresses the high proportion of Cabernet Franc in its vineyard and sings of its exceptional terroir, lying in a circle on the south-facing foothills of Saint-Emilion.
