La Reserve d'Angludet is the second wine from Chateau Angludet and is one of the wines with the best quality to value ratios in Margaux. It is a dazzling aromatic expression of this exceptional terroir.
Home to the Sichel family since 1961, Château Angludet is one of the oldest properties in the Médoc, with a history which goes back to the 12th century. It is named after Bertrand d'Angludet, a knight and lord of the noble residence which stood on this site in 1150. There have been vines at Château Angludet for more than 250 years. Situated on a plateau of Garonne gravel, the vineyard overlooks the low terraces of the Gironde estuary. The gravely, sandy soil has good drainage, fostering concentration, finesse and elegance in the wines. Managed today by Benjamin Sichel, the vineyard of Château Angludet covers a surface area of 32 hectares, all within the AOC Margaux winegrowing area and planted with 55 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 35 percent Merlot and 10 percent Petit Verdot. The relatively large proportion of Petit Verdot demands hard work but imparts depth and richness to the wine.
The Double Guyot trained vines are grown in poor soils, with a large proportion of gravel, with medium sized pebbles and some sand.
Following a temperature controlled fermentation, the wine was macerated on the skins for 20 to 30 days. Ageing took place in oak, 20% of which was new for six to 12 months depending on the vintage. The wine was racked every three to four months and was fined with egg whites prior to bottling.
Réserve d'Angludet offers deliciously seductive aromas of sweet plums, ripe dark berry fruits and black cherries. The palate is rounded and supple with a smooth mouthfeel, balanced oak and a fine, elegant finish.
An elegant red which matches a Sunday roast with all the trimmings, or a rare steak followed by a platter of mature cheese.
