Château Angludet (d')

AOC Margaux Red

Owned by the Sichel family since 1961, Angludet is situated at the heart of the prestigious appellation of Margaux and surrounded by Cru Classé properties. It is the responsibility of Benjamin Sichel, whose constant quest for quality is reflected in his policy of drastically limiting the yield of each vine plant and finding the natural balance of the entire vineyard, in order to get the best expression of this exceptional terroir in every glass. Angludet's wines enjoy a worldwide reputation for their elegance, aromatic finesse and their exceptional ageing potential.

    TASTING NOTES

    The winemaker's work matched the nobility of the terroir and weather conditions were exceptionally favourable, resulting in a wine which is outstanding in every way. The colour is deep red with garnet tints, while the bouquet is a subtle marriage of ripe cassis and more spicy notes with cedar and liquorice. The velvety front of palate heightens to reveal fine structure, with noble, elegant tannins. Everything about this wine denotes it as a superbly crafted wine in a classic vintage. A wine to lay down for at least 5 to 6 years.

    TASTING NOTES

    Young in colour, a deep red with crimson tints and a deep purple sheen. The equally harmonious bouquet is a marriage of black fruits (cassis, raspberry, cherry) and spices with more roasted notes of cocoa and mocha resulting from finely controlled ageing; empyreumatic flavours are the underlying influence here. The finesse and elegance found on the front of palate give way to a smooth, generously rounded texture underpinned by mouth-filling tannins; these grow rounder right through to the finish while retaining their velvety feel. This is a high-class, seductively elegant Margaux which begs to be left at least until the next decade to be able to offer up its full potential.

    TASTING NOTES

    The quality of this outstanding terroir once again shows through in this vintage. The sumptuous, crimson-tinted hue inspires confidence from the start. Accompanying the generous bouquet, a mixture of blackcurrant, blackberry, spices and liquorice notes, is harmonious, classy oak which blends beautifully into the whole without dominating. The balance on the palate, between velvety tannins, creamy extract and remarkable freshness, is perfect, while the floral, soft and fresh finish rounds out the tasting in style. A wine with breeding and all the elegance of a first-class Margaux.

    AGEING

    To drink from 2011, but will be at its peak after more then 10 years ageing in the bottle.
