Château Angélus

Château Angélus

Chateau Angelus is one of the oldest in the St. Emilion. The de Bouard family has been in Bordeaux for more than 700 years. Hubert de Bouard, a student of the famous professor Emile Peynaud, says he does Bordeaux as he did in the 1950s, but with a modern touch. The vineyards of Chateau Angelus are less than a kilometer from the famous bell tower of St. Emilion, on a perfect southern slope. Cabernet Franc (48%) is grown in the lower part, where the soil is sandy and warmer, while Merlot (50%) is in the upper part rich in calcareous clay soils. Angelus wine is a little different from most in this appeal. It matures in 100% new oak for 18 months, and Cabernet Franc gives it incredible freshness and texture. Rich, concentrated and complex, Angelus needs at least five years in the bottle before opening it.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon

This is probably the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth - a natural crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. From its origins in Bordeaux, this vine has successfully spread to almost every wine growing country in the world. Cabernet Sauvignon wines always demonstrate a handful of common character traits: deep color, excellent tannic structure and aromas of black berries and spices.
