Carillon d’Angélus was first released in the 1987 vintage. Over the years it has acquired its very own identity. Reflecting the high, rigorous standards of our teams, the wine is a variable blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon selected from different Saint-Emilion terroirs. The vinification and ageing techniques are adapted with precision to its particular style. It is highly appreciated for the purity of its fruit aromas, its velvety tannins and elegant finish. In 2009, Stéphanie de Boüard-Rivoal became member of Angélus’ supervisory board, thereby becoming directly involved in managing the estate. As a member of the eighth generation of the Boüard de Laforest family, she has committed to maintaining the level of excellence of the property’s wines and image worldwide and takes an active role in promoting Angélus. In 2011, she earned the internationally acclaimed Advanced Certificate from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust in London. This programme extended her knowledge of wine and introduced her more in detail to the other wine growing regions of the world. At the beginning of 2012, her father Hubert de Boüard de Laforest and her uncle Jean-Bernard Grenié asked her to join them and to manage Angélus. She therefore left Pictet and henceforward spends all her time in charge of her family’s business activities as Deputy General Manager of Angélus. In 2013, she carried out the acquisition of the Saint-Emilion restaurant Logis de la Cadène and established a new team there managed by the young talented chef Alexandre Baumard.
