Made from a blend of 43% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Petit Verdot, the ageing of this wine has changed in recent years and is now half in amphoras, with 30% new oak and 20% used oak, for 12 months. The result is a deep ruby purple colour and evocative and seductive aromatics of blue fruit and bramble. The palate is smooth and silky, with soft and integrated tannins allowing the fruit to shine. There is freshness of acidity on the back end that lifts the palate to add some florality.

A dense, layered red with chocolate, hazelnut and redcurrants. It’s medium-to full-bodied. Chewy tannins at the end.

The 2019 Angludet offers ripe black cherries and candied orange peel on the nose before more classic earthier scents join the fray. The aromatics are quite boisterous. The palate is sweet and fleshy, almost corpulent on the entry with a veneer of ripe kirsch and crushed strawberry. Modest depth, focused with a pleasant pure finish, this will be one of Margaux's more approachable wines and should give 15-20 years of drinking pleasure. 2023 - 2038.

The 2019 Angludet is dark, jammy and four-square. It will be interesting to see if there is more here than this barrel sample suggests.

Sweet damson and red cherry fruit, notable creaminess on the attack, with light grilled cedar notes. Not the most intense Margaux in 2019, but easily one of the more supple, inviting and easy to love. Clear Margaux signature with delicate violet flowers on the aromatics. Definitely one to look out for from the Sichel family. Drinking Window 2023 - 2036
