About Chateau Angelus:

Saint Emilion Premier Cru Classe. 60% Cabernet Franc, 40% Merlot. Average age of vines is 25 years. 150 acres producing 12,000 cases. Among the largest of the Grand Crus of Saint Emilion, Angelus was for many years rather underrated. However, since Hubert de Bouard took control in the early 1980s, everything about the estate has improved - most importantly, the wine. Today Angelus has a justifiably fine reputation.
