Critic Notes

No. 2 in Top 10 Great Value 2016 Bordeaux. Beautifully perfumed Angludet with a light touch, gentle extraction and a lightness on the palate despite the firm tannins and good concentration of flavors. Layers of violets and red berry fruits explode on the palate and the freshness comes through in the lifted character of the flavors. The finish is fairly long and persistent.

The ever-popular Angludet is success again this year. Maybe not better than the excellent 2015, but who's complaining when there is this depth of fruit and presence. As it opens in the glass, you really start to see and enjoy the sheer quality on display. Cassis, coffee bean, beautiful richness to the fruit, and well held together by freshness and tannin.

Dark crimson. Some sweetness and slightly simple fruity aromas. Some silky quality and the merest hint of less-than-perfectly-ripe fruit. Pretty and unforced but not top drawer. A bit stringy on the end. Apr 2017, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2025-2040

The 2016 D'Angludet has a rather conservative bouquet that needed some encouragement from the glass. But it eventually reveals attractive blackberry, briary and subtle pressed flower aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with good body and fine density with this Margaux property's consistent sense of approachability. It sounds banal, but there is something instantly likeable about this D'Angludet. It is not an extravagant Margaux, however there is enchanting purity and harmony. It's just the charm that I am sure will be intact by the time of bottling. Drink with pleasure 8-10 years. Apr 2017, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2020-2032

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 ...
