It's the biggest Saint-Emilion phenomenon of the last 10 years! Château Angélus shines at the very top of the Bordeaux hierarchy. In fact, the latest rankings are a testament to its status, placing it on the highest step of the ladder: 1er Grand Cru Classé A. 

Hubert de Boüard's hard work, commitment, and determination to make his cru shine at the very top are behind this enviable position. Far from stopping there, he has decided to convert the 42 hectares of the vineyard to organic farming. It's a constant quest for excellence in which bold grape varieties and exceptional terroir combine to create a legendary cru.

Angélus occupies a place of its own, ensuring unrivaled supremacy through a dense, full-bodied wine propelled by a large proportion of Cabernet Franc, a rarity in the appellation.
