Chateau d'Angludet 2001, Margaux CBE

December 22, 2017

Medium ruby; tight garnet rim. Perfumy and classy 'spa' nose, with the 'rancio' of blackberry, plum fruit, smoke and wood. Red fruits on the palate. Finishes nicely: medium length, dry finish with balanced fruit and wood; the right alcohol;  tamed, dense tannins; slowly evolving with discreet charm. This claret has the structure of a classified growth at a great price(thanks to the scores from Robert Parker et al. and from James Suckling).

 

 

Good vintage for this Cru level like Margaux. Needs 40mins full decanting.  Neighbouring vineyards are prestigious: Giscours, Brane-Cantenac, Kirwan. On pebbly stones on which no grass growth is possible. One of our first bottle of fine claret 30 years back.
