Owned 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 the standards of its contemporaries. Worn leather, fading smoke, dusty gravels pervade this blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot. Quite structural bones frame the medium-bodied, voluminous red. Alluring anise, red currant, red plum, smoked raspberry and cherry, all savoury-tinged and tainted with smoke. Acidity is so well integrated that it's unnoticeable, save for carrying that medicinal-ringed finish which lingers on. Cement vinification for up to 1 month is followed by 1 year in barrel, before fining and light filtration. Drinking very well now, and will only appreciate with another 5 years in the cellar.
