The bell on the Château Angélus label recalls the moments of contemplation of the eponymous prayer. She is the symbol of Castle Angelus. Even if it is touched up with gold and modernized behind its elegance, it expresses the values ​​of tradition and high standards, in the service of the reputation of Château Angélus.
