Tasting Notes

A sleeper of the vintage, this well-known, non-classified growth is a deep ruby/purple-colored effort revealing notions of roasted meats, black truffles, licorice, and loamy earth. Sweet tannin, a rich, chocolaty, black currant fruitiness, medium to full body, and terrific freshness and vibrancy provide a gorgeous early appeal. It will be even better in 3-4 years, and should last for 15 or more

Score: 90Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (176), April 2008

A sleeper of the vintage, d'Angludet's 2005 displays sweet cassis fruit intermixed with licorice, charcoal, truffles, and loamy, earthy notes. Supple tannin, explosive fruit richness, outstanding ripeness, freshness, purity, texture, and length suggest this beauty should be enjoyed during its first 15+ years of life

Score: 90/92Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (170), April 2007

Score: 90James Suckling, WineSpectator.com, February 2008

Tasted blind. Mid crimson. Something a bit agricultural on the nose. Quite dense with the Margaux perfume struggling to emerge. Lightly tarry end. A bit ungainly.
