Chateau Angludet 2012
€ 32,67 (incl. Vat)
A winner from this estate that has produced another major sleeper of the vintage; while not a classified growth, the 2012 d’Angludet may turn out to be outstanding if it puts on more weight. A fruit-forward, sexy, lush effort, it exhibits an endearing roundness along with a dark ruby/plum/purple color, silky tannins, medium body and abundant blue and black fruit notes as well as an attractive floral component. It should drink well for a decade or more.
A bay leaf note pervades this version, while crushed plum and raspberry coulis notes form the core and linger through the pebble-tinged finish. Approachable now.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
