2012 Angludet, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)
Bright and expressive, offering violet and just-crushed red currant fruit gliding along, with silky tannins. Lovely pebble and floral notes flash on the finish.
Some pretty berry and walnut character. Medium body with fine tannins and a silky finish. Balanced and pretty. May be better than 2011.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
* Super fresh! Sweet but firm red fruit with raspberry flavors continue throughout the middle of the wine. This is a wine in the classic style, and it will drink well young. A fine value! (Ralph Sands, K&L Bordeaux Expert)
