Licorice, espresso, flowers, cocoa, herbs, and currants already express their essence on the nose and medium-bodied, fresh, crisp palate. The cherry, and currant finish displays a nice touch of chocolate, touched by oak, and savory herbs in the finish. Already approachable, this will probably be at its best in its youth. Drink from 2026-2038. 88-90 Pts

Medium-bodied, light, bright and fresh, I like strong floral notes, though the wine is on the light side. Soft, forward and medium-bodied, the palate displays crips and crunchy, sweet and tart, savory red cherries with ease. Already approachable, this will probably be at its best in its youth. Drink from 2025-2037.

Medium-bodied, elegant, floral, spicy and fresh, with a vibrant core of currants, cedar, forest leaf and creamy cherries. There is lift, supple-textures and ample, sweet, red fruits that linger starting in the mid-palate and continuing all the way to the finish. Drink from 2024-2040.

Cherries, raspberries and flowers are there for the taking in the perfume. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, soft, refined, clean, juicy, spicy and sweet, with a line of earthy black cherries that starts off in the mid-palate and keeps right on going. 89-91 Pts

Floral and fruity, the wine focuses you quickly on its bright, vibrant red fruits. The wine is medium-bodied, with a core of red currants, red plums, and strawberries. The fruit is clean and pure, but on the lighter, crisp side of the style range. Elegant and soft on the palate, the wine is refined in the finish. Drink from 2024-2034.

Medium-bodied, soft, round, and forward, there is a slight, chocolatey edge to the red plums at the core of this wine, that adds roundness to the vibrancy in the red fruits. Drink from 2022-2034.

Medium-bodied with firm tannins, this wine opens with notes of blackberry, cassis and cherry pipe tobacco. You’ll also find that same sensation on the palate, when the cherry tobacco reappears with a pinch of herbs.

Medium-bodied, elegant, soft, earthy and fresh, with a real sweetness and refinement to the red fruits, with additional earth and floral notes adding complexity here, give this a few years in the cellar and it should be ready to go. This is probably the best wine ever produced at Chateau d'Angludet.

This is surely a contender for the best vintage of Chateau d'Angludet. The fruit is fresh, polished, soft and ripe. Medium-bodied with sweet cassis, tobacco, cherry and herbal character, this wine is quite nice and well-priced. 89 - 91 Pts

Opening with ripe black raspberries and earthy tones, there is a softness to the tannins one does not normally find in this wine. The finish ends with soft, fresh, spicy, floral, black and red fruits. From a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot, this is the best vintage of d'Angludet I've tasted yet.

Medium bodied with red and black fruits, earth and herbs along with a touch of green in finish; the wine is in some ways similar to a classic Bordeaux from the 70’s with its style of tannins.

Dominated by red fruits, strawberry, cassis and cranberry, the wine also offers earthy tones. Medium bodied, lean and foursquare, the wine is on the austere side of the style range.

Plush, not intense, but rich, nice structure and good palate presence. This should drink well young.

Light in color, with very little of its red fruit remaining, the wine is better on its earthy, forest and cherry tobacco nose, than on its light, bright, tart, red berry palate.

Fully mature, the secondary characteristics of tobacco, earth, cedar and cherries are easy to find. Medium/full bodied and firm in a classic manner, there is some rusticity in the tannins. The freshness in the mature fruit however, was appealing. The bottle was popped and poured.
