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

This is an impressive Angludet, with less Merlot and more Petit Verdot than usual. The resulting wine offers a bouquet that is soft, ripe and alluring with notes of blackcurrant and fresh black cherries. The palate is succulent and plush with a sweet underbelly of ripe cassis and a smattering of liqourice, the tannins are subtle and there is an appealing freshness giving excellent balance. This is a charming wine that oozes style and finesse.
