La Reserve D' Angludet, Margaux, Bordeaux, France, 2016

Grapes: A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot from 32ha of average 25 year old vines. Very poor soil. Mixture of gravel and medium sized pebbles with some sand.

The second wine of Chateau Angludet, the 2016 vintage in Margaux was exceptional for quality.

The wine comes from the same vines that make up Angludet's vineyard. There are no main differences in the way the vines are cultivated and the vinification methods between Angludet and Reserve d'Angludet. The distinction between the two wines is only done after the harvest. A series of thorough tastings carried out by Ben Sichel determines the final distinction.

Fermentation is in temperature controlled concrete 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.

The result of a legendary year, this wine is the expression of its exceptional terroir – elegant and charming! Deeply coloured, still deep purple at rim, with a richly layered bouquet that marries jammy fruit – blackcurrant and blackberry – with the toasty, vanilla notes of the barrel. The dense, warming palate is refined throughout, with an elegant tannic structure resulting from its distinguished terroir, as well as from a perfectly controlled winemaking process. 

Ready for drinking from 2019; a great match for a fine cut of grilled meat or a well-garnished cheese board.
