“I think Angélus was promoted more for its notoriety than the quality of its terroir. It’s at the bottom of the hill, that hasn’t and won’t ever change,” he said. “Hubert de Bouard did a great job with getting his wine into Casino Royale and was president of the St Emilion Syndicate for nine years – it’s all very political,” he said.
