At Château Angélus, in the heart of Saint-Émilion in France, the vine and the wine are a religion, a passion shared by the Boüard de Laforest family since 1782. Here is the story of the family, the land, and their exceptional wines. In 2012, Château Angélus was promoted to Premier Grand Cru classé “A,” today, the winery itself is being reinvented: A new château is being built using traditional artisan techniques, with a new bell tower made from the local limestone. With exceptional photographs of the vineyards, the winery, and the renovation and restoration of Château Angélus, this tale of great wine is brought to life.
