Tasting Notes

    Robert Parker, April 2008,

    A sleeper of the vintage, this well-known, non-classified growth is a deep ruby/purple-colored effort revealing notions of roasted meats, black truffles, licorice, and loamy earth. Sweet tannin, a rich, chocolaty, black currant fruitiness, medium to full body, and terrific freshness and vibrancy provide a gorgeous early appeal. It will be even better in 3-4 years, and should last for 15 or more.

    A sleeper of the vintage, d'Angludet's 2005 displays sweet cassis fruit intermixed with licorice,charcoal, truffles, and loamy, earthy notes. Supple tannin, explosive fruit richness, outstanding ripeness, freshness, purity, texture, and length suggest this beauty should be enjoyed during its first 15+ years of life. Drink 2007-2022

    I dont believe I have ever tasted a better dAngludet than this 2005. It reveals an inky/black/purple hue as well as an explosive bouquet of road tar, blackberries, cassis, underbrush, and forest floor characteristics. Medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin, copious glycerin, and a heady finish, it is a sumptuous, atypically forward 2005 to consume during its first 12-15 years of life. Drink 2006-2021.

    Blackish maroon. Quite zesty, almost a hint of citrus, on the nose. Cool, supple, very sweet at first and then just a little dead on the finish. Very pinched tannins - over extracted? Good on the front palate but unnecessarily inky. This one demands cellaring. Drink 2016-21. 16 Points.

    Lots of crushed blackberries and currants. Pure fruit. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Very pretty.

Producer

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.

Region

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.
