Chateau Angelus (formerly L'Angelus) is one of the most prestigious producers in the entire Saint-Emilion district – a name synonymous with crafting voluptuous wines.

As a testament to its quality, the 1996 vintage saw its elevation from Grand Cru to Premier Grand Cru (B) status (in the 1955 Saint-Emilion classification: a rare and highly commendable honour only bestowed upon a handful of estates that have made considerable progress since the classification's inception); and in 2012 it was further upgraded to the highest Saint-Emilion ranking of Premier Grand Cru (A) status.

“This is another magnificent wine…Subtle barbecue smoke, graphite, blackberry liqueur, licorice and chocolate jump from the glass, and the wine hits the palate with a thunderous cascade of sweet, velvety, full-bodied, concentrated black fruits, nice definition from the tannins and decent acidity. The wine has a majestic, multilayered finish that goes on for a minute.” Robert Parker
