    The complexity and precision of a fine wine from Saint-Emilion

    The estate
    The Premier Cru Classe Chateau Angelus takes its name from the three church bells of the town of Saint-Emilion whose tolling has always been audible from the estate’s vineyards. This legendary property was founded in 1782 and, for 8 generations, the family de Boüard de Laforest has carefully guarded its exceptional legacy.

    The vineyard
    The Chateau Angelus vineyard is located in the heart of Saint-Émilion. The vines are planted in clay-sand-limestone soils.

    The vintage
    The 2019 vintage, described as flamboyant, will be remember for a precipitation level favorable for the vines. The clay-limestone soils allowed the vines to withstand a hot, dry and sunny summer thanks to the accumulation of water during the spring and its redistribution in later months. During this second year of conversion to organic farming, the use of copper in the vineyard was below standard. The harvest started under fantastic sanitary conditions on September 18.

    The blend
    Merlot (60%), cabernet franc (40%)

    The tasting
    The Chateau Angelus 2019 displays an intense and bright, almost purplish color in the glass. The exquisite aromatic purity and vibrant notes of black fruit and wild cherry form the cornerstone of this 2019 vintage. The woody notes are perfectly integrated. On the palate, the attack is smooth and the silky tannins roll out, coating the mouth beautifully. Thanks to the high quality of the Cabernet Franc, the finish is quite spicy and minty with a fresh tension. Revealing the authentic nature of the Chateau Angelus terroir, this elegant 2019 vintage is polished and precise.
