The Bordeaux blend has been copied with considerable success in many other wine regions, the ultimate compliment. The Left Bank of the Gironde River boasts the great Chateaux of the Medoc and Graves, whilst on the Right Bank, Saint Emilion (arguably the most beautiful commune) and Pomerol. Bordeaux is synonymous with the finest quality, predominantly in red wines though great dry whites are made in the Pessac Leognan, and most wine lovers will strive to taste the sweet white wines of Chateau Yquem and its neighbouring Chateau in Sauternes and Barsac.
The 1999 vintage from the prestigious Cru Bourgeois property Chateau Angludet, is seductive and elegant.
A wonderful expression of Margaux terroir with that extra large format vivacity!
While most of the summer of 99 was quite damp, the sun came out in August, allowing optimum ripeness to be reached. The harvest brought in lots of good quality grapes, leading to a well balanced and elegant wine with lots of approachable character! The blend of the 1999 is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Every vintage of Chateau Mouton Rothschild car…
This is a lovely, mature St Emilion offering those desirable tertiary aromas and flavours (coffee, tobacco, nuts) balanced wonderfully with the Merlot's ripe and rich characteristics and a fresh acidity.
An absolute Bargain!
