Spreading out over the coast and the foot of the southern coast of the Saint-Emilion AOC, the vineyard of Château Angélus covers more than 40 hectares. The vineyard is spread out in a single block around this famous château, owned by the de Boüard de Laforest family. Jean de Boüard de Laforest, the King's bodyguard, arrived in Saint-Emilion towards the end of the 18th century. His daughter, Catherine Sophie de Boüard de Laforest, settled in the Mazerat vineyard owned by her husband Charles Souffrain. At the beginning of the 20th century, this estate was bequeathed to Maurice Boüard de Laforest who later enlarged it by adding an enclosure called "l'Angélus". Passed down from generation to generation, the vineyard grew even larger over the years to finally produce only under the name of Château Angélus.
In 1954, Château Angélus was classified as a Grand Cru in the first Saint-Émilion classification.
An exceptional terroir, the know-how and the imprint of man on this terroir: everything comes together to produce vintage wines, some of which were produced in mythical years (1899, 1953, 1985, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2005, 2012, 2014, 2018). From 1987 onwards, Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, at the head of the estate, and his cousin Jean-Hubert Grenié, considerably modernised this family business. Since 2012, the reins of the château have been entrusted to Stéphanie de Boüard-Rivoal, representing the eighth generation of the Boüard de Laforest family.
The Château has withdrawn its application for the 2022 Saint-Émilion classification. Despite this withdrawal, the estate continues its quest for excellence. The Boüard family continues to raise the profile of the appellation and of the great Bordeaux wines by producing timeless Fine Wines, reflecting their exceptional terroir and each vintage.
