Château Angludet 2015
Traditional vinification is carried out in cement vats. Vatting lasts for between 20 and 30 days, depending on the vintage and, after the malolactic fermentation, the wines go into barrel (one-third renewed every year) and remain there for 12 months. The final selection of which wines will go to make the final blend for Château Angludet is made in the following February or March. The process of selection is strict (as only the best wines can be included) and is done by a series of tastings. Once the final blend has been done, the wine is fined with egg whites and very lightly filtered before bottling. Drink 2023-2035.
Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot
Produced by Maison Sichel
Ever since it was set up as a buying office in Bordeaux in 1883, Maison Sichel has remained, first and foremost, a family business .
Since that time, seven generations of the Sichel family have succeeded one another at the company’s helm. Today the family own significant vineyards in Bordeaux, including Chateau Angludet and Chateau Palmer. The company has undergone dramatic transformation over the past 50 years, with the purchase of a winemaking facility, construction of a bottling plant, acquisition of two estates as well as a négociant vinificateur.
Beautiful, deeply coloured wine. The initially discreet bouquet opens gradually and quietly to offer a complete array of aromas ranging from notes of cassis, blackberry and spices to violet with a very elegant hint of oak. The hallmarks of the terroir are definitely present on the palate in the elegant, fine tannins, balanced flavours and fine texture. The wine is drinking beautifully with great ageing potential. Once again, this cru is shaking up the hierarchy of the Margaux grands crus.
