Château Angludet Margaux 2011

Margaux, Haut-Médoc, Médoc, Bordeaux, FranceOwned by the Sichel family since 1961, Angludet is situated in the highly sought after real estate of Margaux, and neighbouring many Cru Classé properties. When the Sichel family purchased the property in 1961, they worked to unite and restore the estate to standards worthy of its neighbours. Traces of vines on the estate go back to the 12th Century, and wine has always made wines from the same plots. Vineyards are atop a deep gravel rise (40 feet elevated) plateau which keeps yields low and is the classic hallmark of this site. This vintage blends 55 percent cabernet sauvignon, 35 percent merlot, 10 percent petit verdot. Cement vinification for up to one month is followed by one year in barrel, before fining and light filtration. Acidity is so well integrated that it's unnoticeable, save for carrying that medicinal-ringed finish which lingers on. Drinking very well now, and will only appreciate with another five years in the cellar.Tasted: 29 October 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 74.00 private wine shops Producer: Chateau d'AngludetDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
