CHATEAU ANGELUS, 2014

SAINT-EMILION GRAND CRU

“Wow. This is really decadent and fascinating with forest flowers, chocolate, tea and currants on the nose, which follows through to a firm and silky palate with lots of fruit and balance. Very long and beautiful. Citrusy undertones. Needs five or six years of bottle age to show it all.” - James Suckling

Histoire et 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.
