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.

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.
