2011 Angludet, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)
This shows a light prune and dried-fruit character with spices such as cardamom. Full body, integrated tannins and a crisp finish. Needs three years to come together: better in 2017.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Another sleeper of the vintage from Angludet, the 2011 exhibits a dark ruby/purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of licorice, spring flowers, black currants and cherries. With medium body, silky tannins, surprising stuffing and succulence, this seductive, lush, well-endowed Angludet can be enjoyed over the next decade. (RP)
Dark smudgy cherry crimson. Delicate fragrance, fresh red plum and cassis. Silky smooth already, good depth of fruit. Harmonious and fresh and fluid to the end. Well done...
This wine is firm in tannins and rather austere in style. There’s an attractive black-currant flavor, but structure dominates the fruit. It is meant for medium-term aging.
Offers lively anise and bay leaf notes, mixed with steeped plum, braised fig and blackberry coulis flavors. Lively despite the dark profile, with briary structure adding lift on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2022.
