 A reflection of the Margaux appellation, this is an airy wine with gentle aromas of fresh fruit and spice supported by supple tannins. A true pleasure!

Château Angludet’s history goes back centuries, having been mentioned in 12th-century records, long before it was bestowed the rank of Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel in 1932. After the punishing winter in 1956, the number of hectares under cultivation plummeted from 55 to a mere seven. Everything thus had to be rebuilt when the Sichel family arrived in 1961. Under the latter’s guidance, the estate has been given a second life, reclaiming its place among the elite of the appellation. Benjamin Sichel, the sixth generation of the family to work in the wine business, is currently in charge of the estate.

tasting notes

A tantalising deep ruby hue with dark purple tints! The nose bespeaks youth and combines fresh fruit, blackcurrant and redcurrant, with notes of mild spice. The palate is just as beguiling, nicely but not overly structured and perfectly balanced with extract imparting the texture, depth and elegance typical of any great Margaux! Just the right amount of noble, perfectly smooth tannin underpins a plump palate which is both aromatic and fresh. An outstanding achievement in a difficult, much disparaged vintage.

Drink now or keep until 2025.
