Château Angludet

Owned by the Sichel family and managed since 1989 by Ben, the youngest of the Sichel brothers. This property is blessed with ideal conditions for producing splendidly consistent wines. The sandy and gravelly soil provides good natural drainage, which increases concentration in the fruit.

Tasting Notes

We detect a subtle change in style this vintage at Angludet, maybe driven by the introduction of amphoras in the winemaking process. The bouquet is fresh and aromatic whilst the palate possesses a delectable expression, subtlety and purity of fruit. Sweet and succulent, the crunchy cassis fruits are supported by a wonderful tannin structure, with a note of cedar wood on the finish.
