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.
“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!” – 90pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, March 2013
