  • Winemaker Notes Owned by the Sichel family since 1961, Angludet is situated at the heart of the prestigious appellation of Margaux and surrounded by Cru Classé properties. It is the responsibility of Benjamin Sichel, whose constant quest for quality is reflected in his policy of drastically limiting the yield of each vine plant and finding the natural balance of the entire vineyard, in order to get the best expression of this exceptional terroir in every glass. Angludet's wines enjoy a worldwide reputation for their elegance, aromatic finesse and their exceptional ageing potential.
  • Tasting Notes The palate shows silky, crunchy extract accompanied by notes of cassis and blackberry with earthy aromas; it is enhanced by still youthful, but smooth, mouth-filling tannins. Complex and feminine.

  • Vineyard While it is true that the vines are young, the stock available today is of much better quality than previously. This makes for more “efficient” vine plants which are able to yield fruit more rapidly. This is why today more than ever, La Réserve d’Angludet offers the best quality for price in the entire Margaux appellation, offering dazzling aromatic expression and gentle extract, which is sustained yet delicate.
  • Vinification Fermentation is in temperature controlled vats and the wine is macerated for 20 to 30 days. Ageing in barrel (20% new each year) lasts for 6 to 12 months, depending on the vintage. During this time, it is racked every 3 to 4 months and fined with egg white before being bottled.
  • Viticulture Very porus soil. Mixture of gravel and medium sized pebbles with some sand.
