Château d’Angludet is located in Margaux and has been owned since 1961 by the Sichel family, who are also part owners of Château Palmer and a number of other estates. Angludet’s wines enjoy a worldwide reputation for their elegance, aromatic finesse and their exceptional ageing potential.
Aged in barrels for 12 months; the wine is unfiltered to keep its phenolic components intact. Deep and complex with great concentration of fruits.
A major sleeper of the vintage, as I thought from barrel several years ago, the 2010 is one of the best d'Angludets I have tasted. It should drink nicely for 15-20 years, but there is no reason to defer your gratification. It is a sexy, up-front, precociously styled d'Angludet with a deep purple color, loads of floral notes intermixed with licorice, blueberry, black raspberry and, of course, the classic creme de cassis. It is dense, ripe, soft, round and surprisingly accessible for a 2010. A beauty!- 90 pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
