A cru Bourgeois that consistently delivers wines of Grand Cru classé quality, Château Angludet is a perennial Smart Buy that enjoys a deserved loyal following.

It was the very first sample of 2020 we tasted in the office, and what a way to start seductive and beautifully ripe yet with lifted aromatics, it really impressed and gave us great hope for the vintage, a very favourable first impression that was for the most part confirmed in subsequent tastings of 2020 cask samples from both sides of the river. In the Sichel family since 1961, it was Peter Sichels home for nigh on 4 decades, so he understandably lavished it with care and attention, and the result is a wine that always punches well above its weight and delivers a taste of quintessential Margaux at a very reasonable price point.

The note from our tasting room:
Always an expressive, typically floral style of Margaux, in 2020 Angludet is impressively forward, with a gorgeous fruit core blending cassis and blueberries in a velvet-lined texture, finishing with explosive notes of Asian spices. This is such a seductive yet elegant Angludet, one of the very best I have tasted and very much a success in this vintage.

Critic reviews:
"Deepest crimson with smudgy rim. Lively, fresh aroma with the fruit not the oak to the fore. (No info provided on the oak used, nor on the varietal make-up.) Cassis, blackberry and some red-plum sweetness, which comes through on the palate. Not particularly intense but harmonious, with finely layered dry tannins. Definitely one of the more approachable and digestible Margaux 2020s I have tasted. Hint of chocolate on the finish. (JH) 13.5% Drink 2026 2037"
16 points, Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2021

"Lots of blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors with licorice and tar. Medium-bodied with a solid core of fruit and a long, creamy finish. Best of the trilogy."
92/93 James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, April 2021

"The 2020 Château Angludet is brisk and precise on the nose of blackberry and bilberry fruit, touches of iodine and pressed flowers coming through with time; there’s wonderful focus and energy here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. A saline and marine-influenced Margaux, well balanced with a little grittiness toward the finish. Yet overall, this classically styled Angludet has commendable breeding and should give 20 years of drinking pleasure."
90-92, Neal Martin, www.vinous.com

"Deeply fruited bilberry and blackberry, you really get the autumnal hedgerow vibe - well ripened but still with juice. I like this a lot, has character and bite, although the finish is a little spiky. Drinking Window 2026 - 2040"
Jane Anson, Decanter
