In September 2012, Château Angélus joined the very closed club of First Classified “A” growth. The Saint-Emilion classification confirms the already existing status of Angélus as part of the elite of the appellation. At Château Angélus, vines and wines are like a religion. Less than a kilometer away from Saint-Emilion’s famous church tower, lies Angélus, the fruit of a passion which has inhabited the de Boüard de Laforest family for eight generations.
CHÂTEAU ANGELUS

At the end of the 18th century in 1782, Catherine, known as Sophie de Boüard de Laforest, married Souffrain de Lavergne and came to live in Saint-Emilion. At the beginning of the 20th century, Maurice de Boüard settled at the property. Jacques and Christian, his two sons, ran the estate until 1985, date at which Hubert de Boüard de Laforest came to take over the management and was joined in 1987 by Jean-Bernard Grenié. Standing at a distance of less than one kilometre from Saint-Emilion’s legendary steeple, at the well-known “foot of the hill”, Château Angélus is the work of passion that has been inscribed in history for the past eight generations by the de Boüard de Laforest family.
In 1954, Château Angélus received its classification Great Classified Growth. The estate already enjoyed a well-established reputation which was to help it withstand the Bordeaux Wine crisis of 1970 and get to grips with the process of updating technology during the 1980s. At this point, drawing upon the past of this marvellous estate but looking unhesitatingly towards the future, Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, an oenologist and graduate of Bordeaux University, wished to introduce and carry out an ambitious, innovative policy for producing wines of excellence. Since then, this constant reconsideration of methods and techniques, always for the benefit of the terroir or typical characteristics of the Château’s wines, has enabled this estate to be ranked amongst Saint-Emilion’s finest, to have been given the distinguished rank of First Great Classified Growth in 1996 and promoted to First Great Classified Growth “A” in September 2012, thus joining Châteaux Ausone and Cheval Blanc.

The terroir is exceptional, with a total of 34 hectares of vines, situated on the famous côtes of Saint-Emilion with clay and limestone soils, typical of the region. The soil and topography, associated with its southern exposure, enable rapid ripening, and thus optimal grape maturity. The average age of the vines is 37 years.
Rootstocks have been carefully chosen for their suitability, and the different grape varieties planted on soils where they are best adapted. In order to preserve the identity of the great wines of Saint-Emilion's South-facing slopes, the de Boüard de Laforest family is keeping a high proportion of Cabernet Franc in their wine.

The style of Angélus is a marriage of a bold grape with an exceptional terroir. A deep wine with unmistakable notes of grilled oak, coffee and black fruit.

"The highest standards propel us towards ever higher levels of excellence, which is the reason why our label inspires both confidence and excitement" - Hubert de Boüard de Laforest.
