The estate is located to the west of the municipality of Saint-Émilion, in the area of the same name, on the famous "Pied de Côte" (at the foot of the hill) site. In 1924, Maurice de Boüard de Laforest bought the three-hectare vineyard Clos de l'Angélus. From this one can hear the Angelus ringing (traditional morning ringing) from the three churches in the area simultaneously; these are the chapel of Mazerat, the church of St Martin of Mazerat and the church of Saint- Émilion. The de Boüard family has a history of more than 700 years in Bordeaux. The new owner included the neighbouring Château Mazerat, which had already been in the family since 1850, and other estates. After the Second World War (1939-1945), the estate was given its present name. It was one of the first clients of the oenologist Michel Rolland (*1947).
