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.
Clad in a beautiful ruby red with deep purple tints, this 2016 offers an intense, fresh bouquet with a hint of spice, red fruits and cherry. Mouth filling, chewy tannins on the palate, which lingers to a balanced, superbly unctuous finish. Certainly a great success in this great vintage.
