The vineyard of Château Angélus is situated in a natural amphitheatre overlooked by the three Saint-Emilion churches. In the middle of this special site, the sounds were amplified and the angelus bells could be heard ringing in the morning, at midday and in the evening. They cadenced the working day in the vineyards and villages, calling the men and women to stop their labours for a few minutes and pray. The great French impressionist painter, Jean-François Millet immortalized this moment of prayer in his magnificent work “The Angelus”, which is now on show in Paris’ Musée d’Orsay.
In the first-ever classification of Saint-Emilion wines in 1954, Château Angélus was a Grand Cru Classé. Already at the time, it benefitted from a solid reputation, which helped it survive the Bordeaux wine crisis of 1973 and take part in the oenological renewal of the 1980’s. Angélus is now helmed by Stéphanie de Boüard-Rivoal and, with her cousin Thierry Grenié de Boüard, represent the eighth generation of the Boüard de Laforest family.
