Tasting Notes

Aromas of dark berry compote, marmalade and undergrowth introduce the 2021 D'Angludet, a medium-bodied, soft and fleshy red that will offer straightforward near-term drinking. Drink Date: 2024 - 2035

William Kelley, Wine Advocate, February 2024

The 2021 Château d'Angludet contains less Merlot and more Petit Verdot due to the three-week frost. Daisy Sichel told me that it was aged in 50% amphora this year. It has a relatively light yet well-defined bouquet featuring strawberry and red cherry scents. The palate delivers fine tannins framing the red fruit, quite Burgundian in texture, and hints of graphite, leading to a nicely poised finish. Curiously, the Petit Verdot is quite disguised given the amount used.

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2021 Angludet tumbles out with notes of red and black plums, fried herbs, and graphite plus a hint of black olives. Light to medium-bodied, the palate is soft and well-crafted, with delicate red berry flavors and an earthy finish.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, The Wine Independent, May 2022

A sterling name in the Margaux appellation, often offering outstanding value in muliple vintages. They have leaned into the vintage charater not trying to fight against it, and what you get as a result is savoury juic red and black fruits, with waves of Margaux-signature florality. 26hl/h yield after frost. 50% amphora, 50% oak barrels.

53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 23% Petit Verdot. Cask sample.
Mid crimson. Rather alluring ripe nose. Very soft and round. Not a long-distance runner but a true Margaux-style wine for early drinking. There’s even a hint of an ethereal quality about this. GV?
Drink 2025 – 2034

The 2021 D'Angludet exhibits aromas of cherries, cassis, licorice and loamy soil, followed by a medium-bodied, supple and lively palate that's seamless and charming, even if it isn't the most characterful wine this Margaux estate has ever produced.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate (260), April 2022

53% Cabernet Sauvignon with a whopping 22% Petit Verdot (the highest ever) and 23% Merlot (the lowest ever). Not tasted En Primeur.
