1985 Château d´Angludet
A fine, mature nose with all the scents that makes mature Bordeaux so good - autumn leaves, dried red and black currants, leather, fresh stables and old furniture.
The taste is cool and mature with silky tannins and fine red fruit. Medium bodied. Leather, cold coffee and an autum forest after rain. Very, very good.
I have had many fine bottles from this underrated estate. According to David Peppercorn "the property...missed classification only through its unhappy division" (in 1791). Peppercorn describes, among others, the 1985 as "suberb, with marvellously long flavours and great ´race´, classic Margaux".
