Chateau Angelus - Saint Emilion Grand Cru - red - 1982 - 750 ml
WHAT THE WINEMAKERS ARE SAYING
The great Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe A is expressed at its best with 1982 vintage. The nose is on tobacco aroma, with touch of autumn forest, silky and delicate mouth to finish the great experience.
In the last thirty years, Hubert de Boüard de Laforest has constantly challenged practices and techniques for the benefit of his land and the unique characteristics of the wines grown on it, enabling Château Angélus to be recognised as one of the foremost properties in its appellation area. This recognition has been documented in one classification after another, the last of which awarded Château Angélus the status of Premier Grand Cru Classé "A".
The vineyard at Angélus grows in a natural amphitheatre on a south-facing slope of Saint-Emilion and at its foot, where the summer temperatures are concentrated and where growth starts earlier. The soil is naturally drained by the slope. A good distribution of limestone and clay 8- to 20% proportion provides a regular supply of water and minerals. The vines’ rootstocks are ideally suited to this terroir and the vine varieties are distributed according to the soil types: Merlot on the hill, where there is more clay and Cabernet Franc on the sandy clay-limestone soils at the foot of the hill.
