The Château Angludet estate covers a total of 81 hectares, 32 of which are planted with vines.
Today, the vines, - which are 25 years old on average and planted at a density of 6,666 to 7,300 vines per hectare, consist of a balanced mix of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 13% Petit Verdot.
Continuous wine-growing activity
Vines were probably first grown at Angludet at the beginning of the 17th century. The Angludet vineyard is shown on Cassini's map of 1758 with a configuration very close to that of the present day - the kind of out standing continuity despite the ups and downs of history which you find only among the very best terroirs.
Cabernet Sauvignon provides the structure and back bone typical of wines without standing ageing qualities and helps to retain complexity during the ageing process. Merlot affords roundness and charm, while the Petit Verdot, which comes from the estate's oldest parcel of vines, adds complexity, finesse and character. These three grape varieties are the hallmark of the greatest Margaux wines.
