Marks and reviews
The name Château Angélus comes from the winegrowers who used to ring the bells of three churches simultaneously in the heart of the famous medieval town of Saint-Émilion. This legendary property of the appellation was founded in 1782 and, for 8 generations, the de Boüard de Laforest family has overseen this exceptional heritage on Bordeaux’s Right Bank.
Château Angélus is a Saint-Emilion wine from an exceptional terroir whose vines, on average 38 years old, are planted on the southern slope of Saint-Emilion. This terroir extends over clay-limestone soils on the upper part and clay-sand-limestone soils on the hillside.
The unique black and gold bottle of this 2012 vintage celebrates both the important work undertaken on the estate and the accession of the estate to the rank of Premier Grand Cru Classé "A" - as well as the arrival of the eighth generation at the helm of the estate.
A particularly unstable spring came before a summer with perfect conditions.
Cabernet Franc (45%)
The nose is expressive, releasing intense fruity scents.
The palate harmoniously expresses the two grape varieties making up the blend. The structure conferred by the Cabernet Franc is ideally combined with the velvety touch and the elegance and precision of the Merlot.
This Saint-Émilion wine can be laid down until 2025-2045.
