Critic Notes

Rich, ripe briary fruit, seductive Merlot rounds out the firmer Cabernet, good freshness and fine ripe tannins for a good future. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

Score: 17-/20Decanter

Exceptionally dark. Sweet liquorice notes – very pronounced! Smooth and polished with lots of tannin underneath. Some floral notes too. Cool, dry finish. Very interesting, well-mannered wine. Just a very slight lack of freshness but really that is nit-picking. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Score: 17-/20Jancis Robinson

A major sleeper of the vintage, as I thought from barrel several years ago, the 2010 is one of the best d’Angludets I have tasted. It should drink nicely for 15-20 years, but there is no reason to defer your gratification. It is a sexy, up-front, precociously styled d’Angludet with a deep purple color, loads of floral notes intermixed with licorice, blueberry, black raspberry and, of course, the classic creme de cassis. It is dense, ripe, soft, round and surprisingly accessible for a 2010. A beauty! Feb 2013, www.robertparker.com

Score: 90-/100Robert Parker

A reduced nose makes the sample hard to assess. Light, fine red fruit on the palate and with a nice silky finish.

Score: 16-/20FINE+RARE

The d’Angludet ’10 is a tad broody on the nose despite rigorous coaxing: blackberry, black pepper and a touch of sous-bois . Good intensity but lacking a bit of “joy” and a second sample was showing a little more over-ripeness (and SO2.) The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, thick, robust tannins, very tannic and masculine that leads to an earthy, slightly hard finish. This is a little introspective out of barrel but it has the substance to merit a potential higher mark in barrel. Wait and see. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Bragging Rights: 2014 Margaux
In terms of bragging rights our annual tasting at Margaux is very, very, hard to beat. This is the third February (and Bud Cuchet’s fourth) that I have visited Bordeaux and, in particular, visited Chateau Margaux for what is an eye-opening tasting of some of the component parts of the blend of the previous year’s vintage – in this case ...

Chateau Margaux - Ethereal Elegance and Grace
After profiling the three Pauillac first-growths, we turn our attention to the last of Médoc, the heavenly, ethereal Chateau Margaux.  Chateau Margaux – A Beautiful Chateau Home to Gorgeous Wines While all of the first-growths have helped shape the history of Bordeaux winemaking, none perhaps has left a legacy quite like that Chateau Margaux. Its stately pavilion is ...

Assessing the blend: 2011 Chateau Margaux
Me: “Paul, are you sure that sample is Merlot, it tastes a lot like Cabernet?” Paul Pontallier: “Yes absolutely it’s a Merlot, amazing eh?” Me: “Paul, are you really sure this isn’t a Cabernet?” Paul Pontallier: “Hmmm, no, not any more. Let me check…” It had started as a simple question in late Nov 2011 when I was at Ch ...
