Château Angélus is located just half a mile from the Saint-Emilion bell tower, on the famous "pied de côte", facing due south. Its current consolidation and renovation is the culmination of a commitment made by seven generations of the Boöard de Laforest family. The property owes its name to a plot of vines from which the Angelus bell can be heard ringing at all three local churches: Mazerat Chapel, Saint-Martin de Mazerat church and Saint-Emilion church. Promoted to "Premier Grand Cru Classé" status, the estate is recognised throughout the world as one of the finest in Saint-Emilion.This success is due to many years of devotion by the same family. Respect for traditional practices in both vineyards and cellar is combined with constant technical progress, so that each vintage is brought to the very summit of perfection.
