Chateau Angludet 2012
Ready, but will keep

Blend: 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 12% Petit Verdot

While many of Their neighbours struggled, Ben Sichel has managed to produce a wine with the perfect balance of fruit, freshness and elegance. The tannins are firm but far from aggressive, meaning that this will be a wine that will repay maturation over the next five years or more. Ch. Angludet has been a favourite with Vintage'82 founder - always sensibly priced and reliable. This vintage will be no exception.

The promisingly sombre ruby hue of this wine is as intense as its distinguished and elegant bouquet with its black fruit aromas, subtly highlighted by spices and toasty, vanilla notes. The palate is no less charming – generous, ample and elegant, displaying crunchy fruit and underpinned by superb, perfectly smooth tannins that offer remarkable length. Still in its youth, it will attain its full expression after several years of ageing in the bottle.
