Château d'Angludet Réserve, Bordeaux, France 2016
Regular price £44.75
One of the best-loved and highest profile of Margaux’s crus bourgeois, Château Angludet was in a sorry state in 1961, when the Sichel family bought it and began extensive works to restore both château and vineyard to their original glory.
The thirty-two hectare vineyard averages twenty-five years old, and is well situated between classed growths Giscours and Brane-Cantenac. This second wine is the product of younger vines planted on newly developed rootstocks that suit the poor gravel/sand soil.
Château d'Angludet Réserve 2016
Deep, brilliant ruby red colour and a very intense nose of ripe fruit. On the palate, it shows all the finesse and elegance that typifies the wines of Margaux. Excellent structure thanks to the Petit Verdot, which adds depth and spicy notes on the mid-palate.
