The Angélus style results
from the combination of bold decisions on vine varieties and an outstanding terroir. It is this unique character born of the south-facing Saint-Emilion slopes with its large proportion of Cabernet Franc that we are so pleased to meet over and over again as the vintages pass by. It is also a composition re-crafted every year in a continuous quest for excellence.
From the very beginning, the Château Angélus wine label has always featured a bell on a light background as a reminder of the devotion of the same name. Over the years the bell has become the emblem of the property and has been depicted in many different styles: baroque, schematic, streamlined and even in gold. Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion moves on, but style remains”. The adage applies to this bell, which is an everlasting symbol of an enduring family history that has a palpable identity with a real personality. Behind the elegance, values of loyalty to tradition, the adoption of modern practices and techniques and the rejection of complacency are upheld for the benefit of the estate’s reputation.
