Stéphanie de Boüard-Rivoal and her cousin Thierry Grenié-de Boüard represent the eighth generation of the Boüard de Laforest family, who manage Angélus. After Catherine Sophie de Boüard de Laforest in 1800 and Eugénie Chatenet and 1900, Stéphanie de Boüard-Rivoal is the third woman at the head of this domain, which she has seen grow. She is aware of the task entrusted to her in 2012 and of the responsibilities this entails. She represents the values that have guided her family throughout the history of this domain: integrity, work, humility and devotion to duty. Together with her cousin, she continues the work of their ancestors with the sole aim of defending the grandeur of Angélus and ensuring the perpetuation of this name, synonymous with excellence and timelessness.
The efforts of the passionate owner, Hubert de Boüard, to make the best wine in Bordeaux were rewarded in 2012 with the promotion of Ch Angelus to the super class A. Only four Saint-Emilions are allowed to carry this highest qualification, Cheval Blanc, Ausone , Pavie and Angelus.
The good ratio between lime and clay ensures an excellent water and mineral balance. The grape varieties are divided according to the soil type: merlots on the flanks (more clay) and cabernets francs on the sand-clay-limestone soils at the foot. The Angelus vineyard is located in a natural amphitheater on the south side and at the foot of Saint-Emilion, which increases the temperature in summer and accelerates the ripening of the grapes. The soil has natural drainage through the slope.
The style of this impressive wine is that of silk and velvet. Rich and delightfully concentrated. This cashmere texture full of spicy black forest fruit and truffle is so opulent that it takes your breath away according to the world's leading wine magazines. It needs no further explanation why this has become one of the most sought after wines in the world.
The 2019 Château Angélus 1st Grand Cru Classé Saint-Emilion is an extremely refined and honed Angelus with super fine tannins and sweet ripe fruit on the central palate. It's full, yet sleek and so polished. Silky smooth. Very subtle. Clear blue fruit, black fruit and seeds. Smooth and mineral. 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc.
