Château d'Angludet

The estate is located in the municipality of Cantenac Margaux in the Médoc (Bordeaux). In the Bordeaux Classification according to the old system, which is no longer valid, it was last classified as "Cru Bourgeois Supérieur" in 2003. The name goes back to Marquis Bertrand d'Angludet, who had great possessions here in the 12th century. The first vineyards were created at the beginning of the 17th century. In 1791, the estate was divided into four parts by inheritance, so that it was not taken into account in the Bordeaux classification in 1855, which would most likely have been the case. After several changes of ownership, the property was taken over by Peter in 1961 sickle accepted. After the founder died in 1998, his son Benjamin took over the management of the family home. The castle was completely renovated in 2002 and 2003. The vineyards cover 32 hectares and are planted with the varieties Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (35%) and Petit Verdot (10%). The long-lived red wine is aged for 12 months in 20% new barriques. The second wine is called "La Ferme d'Angludet". A "Clairet d'Angludet" is also created.
