Tasting Notes

Jancis Robinson, April 2009, Score: 17
taster image
Deep purplish crimson. Fragrant, scented, complete - elderberries again. Very opulent but good freshness too and some very ripe tannins. Real zip on the finish. An admirably complete wine. Long. Perhaps a little less classical than some but very well sculpted.

Margaux

Plump, silky and seductive are the words often used to describe wines from Margaux. Because of their style, they tend to be user friendly and more approachable when young. This is in part due to its terroir which is comprised of the thinnest soil as well as the highest proportion of chunky gravel in all of the Médoc. It drains well but also is it more susceptible to vintage variation. Margaux wines tend to have the highest proportions of Merlot within the core of the Médoc further adding to their ample roundness and openness. Margaux is home to the largest number of classified growths including its namesake first growth, Château Margaux, as well as third growths, Palmer and d'Issan.

Château d'Angludet

Ch d'Angludet is located in the southwest corner of Margaux close to Giscours and du Tertre and wasfor many years the home of the late Peter Sichel (Bordeaux merchant extraordinaire). He invested heavily in the vineyards and his painstaking work enabled d'Angludet to surpass its more famous neighbours on many occasions.

Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Petit Verdot

Petit Verdot, which has many characteristics in common with Cabernet Sauvignon, is enjoying a resurgence among some quality conscious producers in Bordeaux. This combination is reasonably common throughout the Left Bank in Bordeaux, notably employed at Chateaux Lagrange, Palmer and Prieure Lichine.
