With a history that reaches back seven hundred years, Château Angludet is one of Bordeaux’ most venerable estates. The first lord was Bertrand d’Angludet, in residence at the château back in the 1200s. Situated in the commune of Margaux, the vineyards were planted in the 1700s in impoverished gravelly soils (vines perform best when stressed a little by meagre soils) on a very slight slope. The prominent Sichel family bought Angludet in 1961, and have restored the wine and château to past magnificence. Always a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot grapes, fermented in concrete vats, (wonderful for texture-building and micro-oxygenation) then left to unwind in French oak casks for a year, gaining exotic spice and vanilla. The 2011 season was a very typical year of maritime weather, and many critics have called the ‘11 Angludet a sleeper of the vintage, meaning it’s one of the standouts, and I completely agree. It’s bullseye claret, with black currants and plums, bay leaf notes, medium body, silky tannins and surprising succulence. It shows off the elegance and refinement you expect from Margaux wines, and is in a beautiful state for drinking now. Pair with a simply prepared roast leg of lamb.
