Château Angelus is one of the largest and most prestigious St-Emilion estates and was promoted to 1er grand cru classé status in the 1996 St-Emilion reclassification. The vineyard of Château Angélus is situated in a natural amphitheatre overlooked by the three Saint-Emilion churches, due west.
Angelus 57.8 acres vineyeard is owned and run by two cousins, Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, and Jean-Bernard Grenie. The wine is matured in 100% new oak for 18 months. Rich, concentrated and complex, Angelus needs at least five years of bottle age before it should be approached.
Starting in 2007, Chateau Angelus introduced a third wine, Number 3 d’Angelus. Production of the third wine is small with close to 800 cases per vintage.
