Château Angludet regularly make Bordeaux wines which compete with Cru Classe Margaux. The Sichel and Davy families’ friendship dates back to Peter Sichel’s purchase and renovation of the Chateau in 1961. Davy’s follows each new vintage release with interest and excitement.
The quality here continues to reach new levels. Not only is Angludet in the process of biodynamic certification, but also we see for the first time the results of the 12 month ageing process being carried out 50% in oak barrels (30% new), with the remaining 50% aged in amphora shaped clay pots. The resulting wine offers a beautifully refined, generous and elegant style combining purity and structure. The reduction in release price of 16% (which equates to an 11.5% reduction in UK pricing against last year’s release) is very welcome during these uncertain times and makes for a really good value for money wine at £138/6ib. As ever Ch. Angludet appears to be punching well above its weight.
Alluring damson and cassis fruit with a hint of raspberry, smoky bacon and a creamy vanilla undertone. Initially restrained, with a little encouragement it follows with blackberry, kirsch, graphite, sweet spice and gentle notes of summer hedgerow. A broad palate of lush, sweet, rich black fruit. The alcohol is generous but kept in check nicely by the lifted acidity. Ripe, dense and finely grained tannin, the wine finishes harmoniously with a lingering note of coffee bean and mocha, infused with liquorice. As ever Angludet rarely disappoints. Drink 2024-2036
