This history of Château Angélus is a family history. The estate is located at less than a miles of the renown church tower of Saint-Emilion in the heart of a amphitheater. The owners of the estate have been the Boüard de Laforest family for 8 generations. In 1996 Château Angélus became Premier Cru Classé de Saint-Emilion and is now renown worldwide. Its recent promotion as Premier Grand Cru Classé “A”, the elite, will only confirm this fame. Today, personified by Stéphanie de Boüard-Rivoal, this new direction brought Ch. Angelus to the next level.

The vineyard is 42 Ha including 27 hectares of 1er “A” and composed of 50% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. The soils are clay-limestone and clay-sandy-limestone. In the vineyards such as in the cellar traditional practices are respected. Not only the progress of the techniques increases each year insuring a high quality wine each vintage.
