Goedhuis, April 2012,
The first wine to be tasted in a flight 2011 Margaux’s and a lovely way to start. This is a balanced and harmonious wine, with a good rounded structure and appealing lively fresh finish.
Robert Parker, April 2012,
This sleeper of the vintage is a round, hedonistic flesh pot with lots of ripe black currant and black cherry fruit, decent acidity, sweet, velvety tannins and a plump, corpulent mouthfeel. Drink it over the next decade. Drink: 2012-2022.
James Suckling, April 2012,
A little reductive but some attractive fruit and ripe tannins underneath. Chewy too. Hard to tell completely but yummy.
Decanter, April 2012,
Good natural vineyard concentration of black berry fruit, good richness of flavour, a hint of leather and is robust yet elegant. Has a good future. Drink 2015-2025. (3 stars).
Jancis Robinson, April 2012,
Dark smudgy cherry crimson. Delicate fragrance, fresh red plum and cassis. Silky smooth already, good depth of fruit. Harmonious and fresh and fluid to the end. Well done in this vintage. Drink 2017-2026.
Wine Spectator, April 2012,
Offers an intriguing range of açaí berry, loganberry and blueberry fruit, with supple texture and a creamy milk chocolate hint on the finish.
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.
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.
