The 30 hectares of vines at Château Angludet are planted in one piece, on a gravel ridge in AOC Margaux, surrounded by forest, meadows and crossed by a stream. A particularly protected natural site conducive to the cultivation of vines and the production of fine wines.
The Sichel family attach great importance to preserving what was built in the past to protect this timeless place.
Angludet is a heritage, a haven of peace and a home.
On a daily basis, the flora and fauna change with the seasons: the colors of spring and the awakening vines, the first leaves, the first clusters.
But also the flowers around the property, between the rows which evolve on the plant cover. The swallows who come back every year, their cozy nests installed in the stables with the horses. Bees who work very hard to make their queen happy.
Like the members of the family, each animal, each flower, each plant will have a direct role or not on the vine. An ecosystem aimed at producing a living wine in a healthy environment.
Out of the village of Margaux-Cantenac, Angludet benefits from a protected and privileged location.
Soil, in combination with the environment and the weather, is one of the three elements that make up what is commonly referred to as terroir.
The ridges have been shaped by erosion and formed by deposits of alluvium and gravel. These are the famous Garonne graves, carried from the Pyrenees in the Quaternary by the river.
They are made up of gravel and pebbles, coated in a sandy matrix, resting on tertiary layers of limestone. Nowhere in Médoc is the terroir more stony, more gravelly than in Margaux, offering permeable and well-drained soils, an asset for the vines, which allows a good water supply in dry periods.
The deep gravel rump on which the vine is planted gives the wines the finesse, elegance, structure and complexity that we seek each year. Three grape varieties are complementary and create a unique blend.
Three grape varieties, three inseparable friends. Château Angludet allows a particular and unique expression thanks to its atypical grape varieties.
A majority of Cabernet Sauvignon blends with the sweetness of Merlot, Petit Verdot represents an important part that allows a connection, a link between the three grape varieties, specific to Angludet wines.
Cabernet Sauvignon gives the structure, elegance and richness specific to long-aging wines while ensuring their complexity during aging.
Merlot, an early grape variety that announces the “start of the harvest” brings roundness and charm.
Le Petit Verdot, made from the oldest vines on the estate, emphasizes the complexity, finesse and character of Angludet wines.
