1989 Château D’ANGLUDET. Margaux

Bin:  800

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

Margaux is perhaps the most famous but in fact the least consistent of the revered communes of the Haut-Médoc, north of Bordeaux. D’Angludet is a 32 hectare estate with classic gravel-sand soils, next door to Giscours and Du Tertre

Grape variety:

55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot; one year in oak (one third new)

Producer:

Dating back to the 12th century, the estate only acquired its international reputation after being bought and expanded by Peter Sichel in the early 1960s

Vintage:

A great year of long-lived wines

Maturity potential:

2005-2015, at its peak now

Old Bridge rating:

A certain sturdiness, but a relative bargain for a mature claret in a top vintage (when compared to prices for young wines now being released)

Press review:

“A good colour. The nose has an elegant bouquet, although there is also a sooty note suggestive of tannins. With time the nose opens out, to develop considerable fragrance. This is a big and aggressive wine when it comes to the palate. Lots of tannin, supporting some rich, blackcurrant fruit. Low acidity. Finishes with a coating of tannin. Needs another three to five years at least. From a Bordeaux 1989 tasting. 17+/20 (May 2000)” – www.thewinedoctor.com
