Chateau Angelus 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This bright ruby coloured wine shows some light brown reflexes. Dominated by black fruit aromas such as blackberries with soft hints of resin, this wine is very soft on the palate, with a rising, balanced acidity. With velvety tannins and discreet notes of toasted wood, this wine is tight and precise.

Château Angélus is located just half a mile from the Saint-Emilion bell tower, on the famous ôpied de côteö, facing due south. Its current consolidation and renovation is the culmination of a commitment made by seven generations of the Boüard de Laforest family. The property owes its name to a plot of vines from which the Angelus bell can be heard ringing at all three local churches: Mazerat Chapel, Saint-Martin de Mazerat church and Saint-Emilion church. Promoted to ôPremier Grand Cru Classéö status, the estate is recognised throughout the world as one of the finest in Saint-Emilion.This success is due to many years of devotion by the same family. Respect for traditional practices in both vineyards and cellar is combined with constant technical progress, so that each vintage is brought to the very summit of perfection.
