Description

Chateau Angludet is one of the oldest properties in the Medoc and is owned by the Sichel family, 6th generation Bordeaux Negociants and part owners of Chateau Palmer.  The wines from Angludet come from vineyards which are all classified as Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel and are consistently excellent.  The superb 2010 comes hot on the heels of the terrific 2009 and although expressive and open now, it will continue to develop very nicely.


An astonishing mixture of power,complexity and elegance! Floral notes then emerge, accompanied by raspberry and cassis, and a hint of minerality supplied by its excellent terroir. On the palate, the attack is unwaveringly soft, smooth and focused. The power of this wine gradually invades the palate, but never aggressively. A densely woven structure of fine tannins makes this an opulent, soft and generous wine, yet always focused, and with fine length. One of the Château’s greatest vintages without a doubt!


(55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot)


A major sleeper of the vintage, as I thought from barrel several years ago, the 2010 is one of the best d’Angludets I have tasted. It should drink nicely for 15-20 years, but there is no reason to defer your gratification. It is a sexy, up-front, precociously styled d’Angludet with a deep purple color, loads of floral notes intermixed with licorice, blueberry, black raspberry and, of course, the classic creme de cassis. It is dense, ripe, soft, round and surprisingly accessible for a 2010. A beauty!
90 Robert Parker- Wine Advocate- Feb 2013


This has a pure loganberry and damson plum core, with lilac, warm pebble and lightly singed anise notes flittering through the background. Offers well-integrated structure through the finish, with subtle minerality echoing. Best from 2014 through 2026. 7,500 cases made.

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Cabernet/Shiraz from Hartenberg has a lovely vivid purple/red colour, with ripe berry fruits on the nose and hints of forest floor entwined with sweet spice. The palate reveals plenty of vibrant red fruit courtesy of the Cabernet Sauvignon alongside typical black pepper spice from the Shiraz.  There's plenty of juicy, crunchy fruit, soft gentle tannins and a velvety, elegant finish.

Gamay Noir Canaille.JPG

2021 Gamay ‘Canaille’, Domaine Roussely

Gamay

Vincent Roussely is the fourth generation of the family to make wines at this beautiful 8 hectare vineyard site in the heart of Chenonceaux on the Cher River. Since 2007 he has farmed his vineyards by hand machine and horse and as a result has seen the health of his vineyards and grapes improve immeasurably, which naturally has a direct influence on the wines he produces.The Cellar is underground, dug into a tuffeau tunnel underneath the vines, and have been used for vinification of wine for over 250 years. New inox fermentation tanks have been put in place located in carved out recesses in the soft stone. Ferments are spontaneous and naturally very slow. 100% Gamay, 50% of which is whole bunch ferment and 50% destemmed from the younger vineyards around the village of Ange, south of the Cher river. Natural ferments with malolactic fermentation taking  place in stainless steel and bottled the summer after harvest.  Delightfully approachable and a pure pleasure to drink, this is a true terroir wine with a sense of place and vitality which make it equally appealing to savour or simply drink.
