Designed by architect Eric Castagnotto, from Architecte DPLG, the new Carillon d’Angélus winery has been built in Saint Magne de Castillon, France, to produce Château Angélus wines. The estate’s former winery was considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which limited it architecturally and made the creation of the winery’s new concept a challenge, and the search for a site had to be extended into neighbouring areas. The challenge was to ensure a balance between the heritage of the site and innovation, where more efficient, modern and innovative equipment was installed. The 4,400-sqm building stands on a 3.30-hectare site, boasting a green roof that blends in with the local landscape. A reception area was created for the grapes, where the best ones are sorted; an area of vats for vinification, where the malolactic fermentation takes place was also created a space for maturation; and there will also be a place reserved for bottling and labelling equipment.
This winery was inspired by Fleur de Boüard, in Lalande de Pomerol. The winemaking area is made up of 18 inverted truncated cone-shaped vats, a hoist system and vat lifts, is 100% gravity fed. It also holds a nitrogen production plant that allows the permanent protection of the wines, as well as oxygen control during vinification and ageing. Photovoltaic panels enable the self-production of the electrical energy necessary for the operations of this structure. The building is BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) certified, which is the UK equivalent to France’s HQE (Haute Qualité Environnementale). The property thus attests to best practices in terms of biodiversity, phytosanitary strategy and fertilisation management.
With its sights set on evolution, Carillon d’Angélus has invested in R&D, from the vineyard to the winery, from winegrowing techniques to the invention of new methods. Tempo d’Angélus is the latest wine from the estate and is distributed through the exceptional wines import agency, GALLEON Fine Wines, its exclusive importer, which offers the vintage in magnum or jeroboam formats, through its online shop.
