Angelus Fine Wine Dinner
The Boüard family, the proprietors of Château Angelus, date from 1544 in Saint Emilion. Located on lower hillsides, with a southerly exposure, their 67-acre vineyard, composed of sandstone, limestone and clay, is planted with 47% Cabernet Franc, 50% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. Hubert de Boüard, the man responsible for single-handedly elevating the quality to Premiers Grands Crus Classé A, saw his efforts beginning to pay dividends from the late 1980’s. Since then, there has been a remarkable succession of great wines.
Radical viticulture such as crop-thinning, shoot-positioning and the immensely labor-intensive manual destemming are employed. Both a second and third wine are made, as the selection process for Angelus is severe. In 2012 this resulted in Angelus being upgraded, along with Pavie, to Premier Grand Cru Classé A, joining Cheval Blanc and Ausone as one of only four estates in St.-Emilion to receive this accolade. It is now regarded as one of the finest estates in all of Bordeaux.
