Angelus

Premier Grand Cru Classé A (First Growth - Classed A) of Saint Emilion

The wines of Chateau Angelus

Chateau Angelus is located 35km East of Bordeaux, on the right bank of the Dordogne river. The chateau Angelus has been owned by Hubert de Boüard’s family for two centuries. Angelus has been ranked first growth – A (premier grand cru classé A) since 2012, and the estate’s vines grow over a 27 hectares vineyard (4 hectares were excluded from the first growth ranking in 2012 due to their not so top-range location). The vineyard has different types of soil: clay-limestone with traces of blue clay for the upper part, and clay-limestone but sandy on the hillside. The vineyard’s density is between 7,000 to 8,000 vine stocks/hectare.  The vines are generally a bit more than 30 years old, and sustainable viticulture is the preferred growing method for the whole estate. In the vineyard, three types of red grape varieties are to be found: 50% Merlot, 47% Cabernet-Franc, and 3% Cabernet-Sauvignon.

The Chateau Angelus used to only be ranked as a great classed growth (grand cru classé), but it has gained great recognition since the 1988 vintage, thanks to the advice of oenologist Michel Rolland. Since then, Hubert de Boüard has been consistently improving his wines while working on the land parcels of his vineyard. The goal to reach, one day, the first great classed growth - B ranking (Premier Grand Cru classé B) was achieved in 1996. The first great classed growth - A level (Premier grand cru classé A) finally became a reality in 2012, among the chateaux Cheval Blanc and Ausone (as well as chateau Pavie). The chateau produces 3 red Bordeaux wines: the first great wine of the Angélus is outstanding and of great colour. It is precise, refined, and appreciated for its crisp freshness. Besides, this wine has a great ageing capacity (8 to 25 years). The best vintages of Angélus are: 20152014201020092005200320001998199519901989. Angelus has even already got the exceptional tasting note mark of 100/100 for its 2005 vintage. The second wine called Carillon d’Angelus is very complete, and it tends to be more supple and its ageing capacity is lesser (5 to 10 years). Given the inflationary prices of the first wine, Carillon d'Angelus can be an attractive alternative for a much lower budget. This second wine partly comes from the land parcels excluded from the ranking as a first great classed growth (premier grand cru Classé). A third wine, simply named N ° 3 d'Angélus, is produced predominantly from Merlot (85 to 90%). This wine is made to give immediate pleasure as soon as it comes out of the tank and is characterized by its fruity tones and roundness. The quality level of Chateau Angelus is particularly high, and, as it should be, the price of its wines too.
