As from the 1980s, an awareness developed. Growers acknowledged that terroir didn’t belong to man, he was simply its custodian. His duty was to pass it on intact to the future generations.
"After a mild, rainy winter and then spring frosts (which were mostly kept at bay), a very long, damp, rainy period put our teams under stress.
From 15th April to 28th August 2022, a Picasso exhibition will be held at the Cité du Vin. The Cité du Vin will be presenting works by the Spanish master, exploring the presence of wine in his multiform creations across four themes: between sky and land, the allure of le populaire, the intoxication of forms, and the wine of Gods. Angelus is thrilled to be a sponsor of this unique monograph and thus show its deep attachment to art.
A vigneron’s job is to farm the land in such a way that the highest quality of grapes can be produced.
Angelus was very pleased to host the 5th stage of the traditionnal vine-pruning competition organised by the "Salariés agricoles de Gironde" association celebrating its 60th anniversary.
“Since it has a unique definition, Carillon d’Angelus is no longer a simple Second Wine. It is now a great wine in its own right.
It was within this perspective that, before building new cellars for the vinification of its wine, we put in place a policy of acquiring vines grown on high quality terroirs, in order to take our Carillon d’Angelus to the highest possible levels of quality. In less than 10 years, the vineyard surface area devoted to Carillon d’Angelus has increased from 7 hectares (17 acres) to 18 hectares (44 acres).
Today, our spectacular new cellars, which are equipped with the latest, state-of-the-art technology, have helped to make our wines even greater”.

The ageing process is one of the key stages in winemaking. It begins just after the fermentation and helps refine the wine’s tannins and enables the aromas to become more distinct and stable. This is a crucial process for great wines, such as Angelus, which have the capacity to age in bottle over decades.
