The ever-popular Angludet is success again this year. Maybe not better than the excellent 2015, but who's complaining when there is this depth of fruit and presence. As it opens in the glass, you really start to see and enjoy the sheer quality on display. Cassis, coffee bean, beautiful richness to the fruit, and well held together by freshness and tannin.
The 2016 D`Angludet has a rather conservative bouquet that needed some encouragement from the glass. But it eventually reveals attractive blackberry, briary and subtle pressed flower aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with good body and fine density with this Margaux property`s consistent sense of approachability. It sounds banal, but there is something instantly likeable about this D`Angludet. It is not an extravagant Margaux, however there is enchanting purity and harmony. It`s just the charm that I am sure will be intact by the time of bottling. Drink with pleasure 8-10 years. 89-91 points Wine Advocate
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 12% Petit Verdot. Quite dark and brooding. Plush, with lots of stuffing and the bright, sweet ripeness has a background freshness and refined tannic structure that makes it even more appealing in this vintage.
