Château Angelus 2021 - 1st Great Cru Class A
Less than one kilometer from the famous bell tower of Saint-Emilion, on the famous south-facing "pied de côte", Angelus is the work of a passion written for eight generations by the de Boüard de Laforest family.
Planted on the clay-limestone hillside south of Saint-Emilion, the vineyard dedicated to great wine has 27 hectares, currently undergoing organic conversion. It gives smooth wines with silky tannins, which play the fruit card in all its richness, and toasted. The wine is aged for 22 months, mainly in new barrels, the rest in 30 hl barrels.
Second wine "Le Carillon d'Angélus" is planted on 17 hectares mainly planted with Merlot.
