Exactly our cup of tea: classic old-school Bordeaux from an excellent vintage, aged to “English standards” (by which we mean, the French and Americans would think that this was tiring but we think it’s just reached full maturity).
We’ve already taken a case of this for home drinking so if you want some, do buy it before we finish the first case…
Chateaux Angludet is a family favourite at Nemo Wines as many of the (mostly dodgy) 70s vintages were picked by various members of the family. It’s also a favourite at home where we are currently alternating between the 1985 and the 1998, each very different in style, and each belying advice about not letting the wine age too much.
The chateaux hasn’t had an amazing reputation for a long time, at least in part because all of its vines were destroyed by frost in the 1950s but the owners of the estate (who also own Chateau Palmer) have invested heavily and the classic blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot makes for a very good classic claret for the price.
1985 was a very good vintage in Bordeaux
