Chateau history goes back to 1273, at time of first lord of Angludet. The first records of a noble residence on the estate of Angludet (which means « angle of high land ») date back to 1150. Most probably, the first vines were planted at the beginning of 17th Century.
In 1932, Château Angludet was one of six châteaux to be promoted to the rank of Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel.
After Management for 20 years under Paul Six’s (an industrialist), chateau was sold to Mr Thomas and then in 1961 to the Sichel family. Today chateau Angludet is the seat of the Sichel Family.

TASTING COMMENTS (From the château)
Château Angludet is a fine, elegant wine. At each vintage, we seek to achieve the ideal balance between the fruit, the structure, the tannin and the freshness afforded by acidity to guarantee outstanding ageing potential. Angludet’s great aromatic finesse becomes apparent from the 3rd year after harvest and continues to develop for decades.
Beautiful, deep red with black tints. The nose is ripe and elegant, with fruit predominating.
With the 2008 vintage, Château d’Angludet changed its name to Château Angludet.
