This is a brilliant example of classic Claret, the blend being selected after extensive blind tasting by James Davy with Charles Sichel of Maison Sichel (owners of Chateau Angludet). A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, with rich, ripe redcurrant and blackcurrant fruits, a touch of cedar and spice – supple and well balanced.
The grapes are carefully selected and de-stemmed before fermentation and aging for 12 months in French oak barriques. 2012 produced a vintage with dark, succulent fruit, full-bodied and balanced by some vanilla and toast aromas from the élevage.
French still red wine from Bordeaux France, made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
With their 350 hectares of vines, Maison Sichel is a true winegrower, winemaker and éleveur. In its constant quest for improvement, Maison Sichel has adopted an original and holistic approach to the wine-making process. The story began in 1856 when Hermann Sichel set up a wine merchant business in Germany. The next step was to open a buying office in Bordeaux in 1883, and today Maison Sichel has remained a family business with the sixth generation in charge of the estate. View our selection.
