La Réserve d’Angludet is the new name that we have given to the second wine from Château Angludet. While it is true that the vines are young, the stock available today is of much better quality than previously. This makes for more “efficient” vine plants which are able to yield fruit more rapidly. This is why today more than ever, La Réserve d’Angludet offers the best quality for price in the entire Margaux appellation, offering dazzling aromatic expression and gentle extract, which is sustained yet delicate.
La Réserve d'Angludet is the second wine of the Château d'Angludet. It comes from the same 34 Ha of vines that counts Angludet's vineyard. There are no main differences in the way the vines are cultivated and the vinification methods between Angludet and Reserve d'Angludet. The distinction between the wine which will make the Château Angludet and La Réserve d'Angludet is only done after the harvest. A series of thorough tasting carried out by Ben Sichel determines the final distinction
VINTAGE 2012 :
TASTING NOTES - A still youthful bouquet that opens gradually to offer up a rich palate of wild fruit, violets, blackberry, blackcurrant and plum. Beautifully well-bred palate, with smooth extract adding elegant plumpness to the moderate tannins and a hint of toastiness. Drunk in its youth, it will offer all the finesse and charm typical of this exceptional terroir.
AGEING - Drinking from 2015; a great match for a fine cut of grilled meat or a well-garnished cheese board, but whatever the case over any informal meal.
GRAPE VARIETIES - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
TERROIR - Very poor soil. Mixture of gravel and medium sized pebbles with some sand.
WINEMAKING/MATURING - Fermentation is in temperature controlled vats and the wine is macerated for 20 to 30 days. Ageing in barrel (20% new each year) lasts for 6 to 12 months, depending on the vintage. During this time, it is racked every 3 to 4 months and fined with egg white before being bottled.
