CHATEAU ANGELUS, 1992

SAINT-EMILION GRAND CRU

1992 est un bon millésime avec un été chaud et sec mais quelques pluies ont perturbé la maturité des baies. Le château Angelus 1992 est un vin souple et fin avec des arômes de fruits noirs, de réglisse et de cèdre. Les tanins sont doux, et la finale harmonieuse.

History and anecdotes

For eight generations, the Château has belonged to the de Broüard de Laforest family. The Angélus vineyard is located within a natural amphitheatre, which is dominated by the three churches of Saint-Emilion. In the heart of the special site, the sound is amplified and we formerly could hear the Angelus bells ring in the morning, at midday and in the evening. In 2012, the Château was classified “A” as Premier Grand Cru in the Saint-Emilion classification. Nowadays, Stéphanie de Boüard - Rivoal manages the estate.
