TASTING NOTES
"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. Drinking Window 2024 - 2038."
Jane Anson - Decanter.com - April 2017

TASTING NOTES
The deep colour of this wine is the portent of its intensity. The nose is tantalisingly fruity and full of promise. The cassis and blackberry aromas make this a taut wine on the whole, but pervaded by a certain softness. The palate is rounded and creamy, with velvety tannins, ripe fruit and a refreshing touch of acidity that creates a balanced whole, as well as delicate spices which evolve on the palate and lend unique character to this vintage. The finish is long and light as air. The hot late-August weather helped concentrate the grapes after the springtime rains, imparting finesse and rare elegance.

AGEING
Will need about three years for its true depth and aromas to come to the fore, after which the typical expression of its “terroir” will go on developing for the next ten years.
