Château d'Angludet

This much-loved estate produces Cru Bourgeois Margaux at Cru Classé standards. Named after Betrand d’Angludet, a knight who lived on the site in 1150, the vineyard has likely been in action since the 17th century. Although it missed the classification in 1855 due to a division of the estate, for a long period it was considered a Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel. It fell into decline from the 1930s, due to neglect and harsh winter conditions before finally being bought by the late Peter Sichel in 1961. His tireless work replanting the vineyards, improving the winery and regaining the recognition of Angludet’s past paid dividends, and today his work is continued by his five sons and their children. The estate has 32 hectares of vines on sloping gravel soils, and neighbours Châteaux Giscours, Cantenac and du Tertre. Converting the estate to biodynamic farming methods is a further feather in the Sichel’s hat, as they continue to produce fine Margaux.
