Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc
Tastings Notes: With warm, fragrant cherry characters, this is extremely attractive on the nose. The palate is expressive, with dark morello cherry and raspberry fruit and a subtle vanillin character from the use of oak. The tannins are ripe, fine-grained and well-integrated. Layered and charming, this wine gives an overriding impression of balance. Classic Margaux.
About the Winery: Home to the Sichel family since 1961, Château Angludet is one of the oldest properties in the Médoc, with a history that goes back to the twelfth century. It is named after Bertrand d’Angludet, a knight and lord of the noble residence which stood on this site in 1150. Since 1758, the vineyard of Château Angludet has retained a configuration down the centuries which is very close to the original, 93% of the current surface area having nurtured vines for more than 250 years – exceptional continuity for a vineyard.
