Goedhuis, May 2020
Deep opaque colour, with a glorious profusion of cassis and blackcurrant aromas. A rich bold style, with sweet juicy dark fruit flavours. A broad mouth filling wine, with a very smooth Margaux tannic core and a touch of freshness. An impressive introduction to the 2019 vintage.
Neal Martin, June 2020,
The 2019 Angludet offers ripe black cherries and candied orange peel on the nose before more classic earthier scents join the fray. The aromatics are quite boisterous. The palate is sweet and fleshy, almost corpulent on the entry with a veneer of ripe kirsch and crushed strawberry. Modest depth, focused with a pleasant pure finish, this will be one of Margaux's more approachable wines and should give 15-20 years of drinking pleasure. Drink 2023 - 2038
Antonio Galloni, June 2020,
The 2019 Angludet is dark, jammy and four-square. It will be interesting to see if there is more here than this barrel sample suggests.
Decanter, June 2020,
Sweet damson and red cherry fruit, notable creaminess on the attack, with light grilled cedar notes. Not the most intense Margaux in 2019, but easily one of the more supple, inviting and easy to love. Clear Margaux signature with delicate violet flowers on the aromatics. Definitely one to look out for from the Sichel family. Drinking Window 2023 - 2036
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.
