Tastings Notes: Delicacy and charm often seem to be the hallmarks of Angludet—positive virtues in a world full of alcoholic, powerful wines. This 2003 has perhaps more tannins than usual from small berries, but it retains the property's elegance.
About the Winery: Angludet ("Angle of High Land") date back to 1150, and the vineyard is thought likely to have existed in the 17th Century. In 1791, the estate was split four ways among heirs on the death of the then-owner, its scattered nature explaining the lack of a subsequent ranking in 1855. The estate was reconsolidated in 1891, though by 1960 there were just seven hectares (17 acres) of vineyard. Since 1961, the property has been the home of the Sichel family, who have restored the château and the reputation of its wine.
