Château Angelus

The Château Angelus and its famous carillon overlooking the surrounding vineyards is an essential reference for the Rive droite de Bordeaux. 

The history of Château Angélus is intimately linked to its geographical location, as it was the only place around the village of Saint-Emilion where you could hear the sound of the angelus (L'Angélus in the singular, Christian prayer of the Western Catholic Church) from three surrounding churches: the Mazerat chapel, the church of Saint-Martin and the church of Saint-Emilion.

In 1782, Jean de Boüard de Laforest settled in Saint-Emilion, and his daughter Sophie settled on the Mazerat vineyard, owned by Charles Souffrain, whom she married in 1795. The de Boüard de Laforest family would thus remain at the head of Domaine, and it was Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, an oenologist by training, who would contribute to its great renown from 1985 onwards, by introducing innovative practices. His daughter Stéphanie joined the adventure in 2012, embodying the eighth generation. The passionate management of Château Angélus year after year is above all a family affair.

Description Château Angélus 2022.

This vintage isn’t just unprecedented, it’s extraordinary, in the most literal sense of the word. Called "the Majestic vintage", since its outstanding characteristics propel it into another domain, an unparalleled one. Perhaps never before in the history of the estate, have they come so close to the ideal of excellence that guides and inspires them. 

2022 is beyond all comparison. It imposes itself majestically.

The wine exhibits a lively, deep, dense, dark purple colour. The aromas were carefully preserved throughout the vinification process and display a vast array of fresh black fruits and an intensely floral side reminiscent of violets.

Smooth and juicy but also delicate and precise on the palate, the 2022 reveals the hallmark freshness and verticality of the Cabernet Franc.

The oak is already well-integrated, allowing crisp, flavoursome ripe fruit to come to the fore.

A long and spicy finish, underpinned by silky, tight-knit tannins. The wine’s flavours linger long in the mouth, seemingly never wanting to end.

This vintage is rich in salinity and complex and has great tension and freshness. It shows the immense capacity of the Angelus terroirs to adapt to climate adversity.
