A young, very modern and sleek '89. Inky color. Wonderful aromas of spices, blackberries, cinnamon and vanilla. Full-bodied, with loads of silky tannins and a long, berry-cherry aftertaste.

(1-2003) A great Angelus and one of the two or three best vintages made under the talented young Hubert de Bouard, this wine still has a youthful, saturated ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of melted licorice intermixed with creme de cassis, tapenade, cedar, spice box, and vanilla. Very full-bodied, opulent, and rich, it is one of the 1989s that justifies the lofty reputation of this vintage. Extremely full-bodied, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for at least another 10-15 years.

Angelus

Château Angelus was promoted Premier Grand Cru Classé A of Saint-Emilion in 2012 (previously it was 1st Grand Cru Classé B since 1954). He shares the head of the Saint Emilion wine classification with AusoneCheval Blanc and Pavie. >> see our article


In 1909 Maurice de Boüard inherited the château then called Mazerat. It was not until 1924 that he acquired a nearby 3-hectare pen called L'Angelus. On this occasion, the name change takes place. The Château Angelus owes its success to Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, its director, who has raised its quality to the level of excellence.
Since 2018, the castle Angelus initiates its conversion to Bio which should be completed in 2023.


The vineyard of Château Angelus is located on the foot of coast, a steep hillside facing south. The clay-limestone soil rests on a calcareous base. The grape variety is composed of about 51% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. In some years as in 2003, the share of Cabernet Franc even exceeds that of Merlot! Mature wine 18 to 22 months in new barrels.


The greatest vintages of Château Angelus are 1988, 1989, 1990, 19931994
