Château Angelus

Château Angelus, jewel of the Boüard de Laforest family, is very appreciated by lovers of great wines, particularly lovers of the Saint-Emilion appellation. With vines located at the foot of the slope, close to the Saint-Emilion bell tower, they benefit from a southern exposure and sandy clay-limestone soils.

In the 1980s, Château Angelus grew particularly quickly thanks to a change of breeding method recommended by Bordeaux oenologist Michel Rolland, specifically concerning wine ageing done in fresh new oak barrels and a more rigorous selection of batches for blending. With these improvements, the production results proved to be extraordinary and allowed Château Angelus to become a First Growth in 1985. The produced wines are fruity, intense, supple and full-bodied with an excellent ageing potential.
