2006 d'Angludet, Margaux
Big, ripe fruit emerging from soft, dusty-textured tannins makes this a wine that is already pleasurable. Black fig and plum juice fruits roll comfortably around the mouth, balancing well, and maturing quickly.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A touch of damp earth, sweet plum, and black cherry fruit are present in this spicy, earthy, medium-bodied wine. It is up-front and best drunk over the next decade. It is not all fun and fruit, as some austere tannins are in the finish, but they are not overwhelming, nor are they out of balance.
This offers perfumed aromas of raspberry and flowers. Medium-bodied, with refined tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Delicate and very pretty. Best after 2012.
K&L's notes - At the property this was very good. It might be as good as 2005-maybe better. Sweet red berry aromas. Elegant cranberry flavors. Very impressive wine that should be a fine value! At UGC-black licorice nose and flavor. Some black cherry undertones on the palate-good depth. Fine plus. *1/2 Ralph Sands: Real nice, firm elegant red fruit, a little smoky. Good fruit and texture on the finish. Alex Brisoux: Rustic black fruit, licorice, dense, toast, nice structure, meaty. And on 01/23/09: really has fleshed out on the palate. Very sweet and zesty!
