Chateau Angludet, 2014
This is absolutely perfection in wine. Balanced and poised, it is like Dorothy clicking her heels: you know what's coming next is life-affirming and utterly wonderful. The typical aromatic Margaux blend is not overly heavy in Cabernet Sauvignon here at 55%, but it still gives enough structure to the wine to be able to grow and develop for another decade at least.
Blackberry, vanilla, blueberry compote and integrated spice all seductively pull you into the glass and the palate never disappoints, with its soft lushness, ample body and charming texture.
Angludet was acquired by the Sichel family in 1961 (which was some special vintage to get!) and since then have worked tirelessly to maintain and improve the quality of its wines. They have succeeded and then some, bringing this Chateau up to the standard of its Cru Classé neighbours in leaps and bounds. Very poor quality soil, made of sand and large pebbles, assists the winemakers in this search for quality as the roots burrow deep into the grounds searching out nutrients for the vines. The wines are traditionally made and the presence of a second-wine means that the selection process for the Chateau wine is always extremely rigorous, yielding the very best that the land can give.
