Angelus

Background

One of the largest and most popular estates in St. Emilion, Chateau Angelus was promoted to premier grand cru status in 1996 after fantastic work by seven generations of the Bouard de Laforest family. The addition of Michel Rolland to the team in the 1980s however is what really turned the fortunes of this estate around. Stricter selection and fermentation in small oak casks added a complexity and intensity to the wines along with its trademark of early accessibility and supple fat fruitiness.

The wines are usually a blend of around 50% Merlot and 47% Cabernet Franc with Cabernet Sauvignon making up the rest of the mix. The annual production is around 6000-6500 cases.
