Château Angélus 2017

The refinement and aromatic brightness of a Saint-Émilion Premier Grand Cru

The estate

The name Château Angélus comes from the winegrowers who used to ring the bells of three churches simultaneously in the heart of the famous medieval town of Saint-Émilion. This legendary property of the appellation was founded in 1782 and, for 8 generations, the de Boüard de Laforest family has overseen this exceptional heritage on Bordeaux’s Right Bank.

The vineyard

Château Angélus is a Saint-Emilion wine from an exceptional terroir whose vines are located on the southern slope of Saint-Emilion. This terroir extends over clay-limestone soils on the upper part and clay-sand-limestone soils on the hillside.

The vintage

Although the mild weather at the beginning of the year advanced a particularly early budburst, this was slowed down by a major frost at the end of April, which had a strong impact on the Bordeaux vineyards but little on the Angélus vineyards. An even flowering preceded a hot June. The dry conditions during the summer allowed a progressive and regular ripening until the harvest which started on September 13th!

Blend

Merlot (70%)
Cabernet franc (30%)

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, the deep purple-black colored 2017 Angélus is a little closed to begin, opening out beautifully to notes of baked plums, fresh blackberries and chocolate-covered cherries with hints of mocha, bay leaves, beef drippings and wood smoke plus a touch of roses. Medium to full-bodied with a great density of mid-palate fruit and firm, fine-grained tannins, it finishes long and earthy with a compelling lift.
