The St- Emilion estate of Chateau Angelus sits in a natural depression, surrounded by hills topped with three churches. The sound of the angelus bells at each of the churches is amplified by the geography of the location. Historically, these bells would call the laborers in the vineyards to prayer three times a day.
The estate which would become Chateau Angelus was founded in 1782 by Jean de Bouard de Laforest and has passed through eight generations of his family, currently commanded by Stephanie de Bouard-Rivoal. She, like her ancestors, is committed to the future of the estate, through excellence.
In the first classification of Saint Emilion in 1954, Chateau Angelus was named a Grand Cru Classe, but has since been promotated to the highest classification, Premier Grand Cru Classe A.
