Goedhuis, April 2013,
A delicious example of Margaux, from this, the appellation’s most consistent Cru Bourgeois. The clean and bright berry-fruits carry through into the palate, a superbly balanced wine in a very easy drinking style.
Neal Martin, May 2013,
Tasted from a barrel sample at en primeur. A blend of 12% Petit Verdot, 40% Merlot 40% and 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, the d’Angludet has a light bouquet of macerated red cherries and fresh strawberry. The palate is a little metallic on the entry and it never really musters the energy or fruit intensity that I am really seeking at this early stage. Tasted April 2013.
Robert Parker, April 2013,
A winner from this estate that has produced another major sleeper of the vintage; while not a classified growth, the 2012 d’Angludet may turn out to be outstanding if it puts on more weight. A fruit-forward, sexy, lush effort, it exhibits an endearing roundness along with a dark ruby/plum/purple color, silky tannins, medium body and abundant blue and black fruit notes as well as an attractive floral component. It should drink well for a decade or more. Drink 2013 - 2023
James Suckling, April 2013,
Some pretty berry and walnut character. Medium body with fine tannins and a silky finish. Balanced and pretty. May be better than 2011.
Jancis Robinson, April 2013,
Dark crimson. Low-key nose with a suggestion of overripeness. Very sweet and a bit simplistic. Dry finish. Drink 2019-2028
Wine Spectator, April 2013,
Bright and expressive, offering violet and just-crushed red currant fruit gliding along, with silky tannins. Lovely pebble and floral notes flash on the finish. —J.M.
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.
