Chateau d'Armailhac Pauillac Rotwein 2000
"This continues to be one of the most seductive and luscious d'Armailhacs I have ever tasted. It may be my favorite vintage of d'Armailhac. Opaque purple-colored, this blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Merlot has surprisingly good acidity with the high Merlot content and high tannin, but an expressive, opulent mid-texture and loads of charcoal-infused, cedary, black currant fruit intermixed with spice box, dried herbs, and espresso notes. The wine is full-bodied, sweet, and expansive. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020." 91 pts, Robert Parker (Wine Advocate - Apr 2003)

Opens with a slight Bretty character encompassing herbal notes and spice covering dark, rich blackberry and cassis and finishing with a turn back to cedar. A very complex nose, that continues in the mouth with more black fruit and dried herbs falling off to mouth coating tannins.

Seductive and luscious, the 2000 is a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Merlot. It boasts a saturated purple color along with smoky, licorice-infused, cedary, black currant-scented aromas with plenty of toasty oak. Dense, opulent, seamless, and medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin, it has loads of volume, depth, and power. Anticipated maturity: 2003ndash;2016.
An exotic, spicy, gorgeously rich blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Merlot, the 2000 exhibits a dense garnet/plum/purple color in addition to a big, smoky nose of espresso, nuts, Asian spices, black plums, currants, and leather. Superbly concentrated, with sweet tannin, and a thick, juicy texture, it must be the best drsquo;Armailhac ever made. Anticipated maturity: 2005ndash;2020.

Loads of fruit in this wine, with concentrated tobacco, cherry and cedar. full in body, with big, velvety tannins and a long, succulent aftertaste. Best after 2002.
Made in an attractive, more muscular style, the 1994 displays a dark ruby/purple color, spicy, meaty, curranty aromas with a touch of cedar and earth, moderate tannin, and good flesh and structure. It may develop into an upper eighty point wine if the tannin melts away without any loss of fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2010.
Juicy red. Plenty of tobacco, berry and currant character in this. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a long finish. Best after 2008. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Armailhac, D 750ml
This fifth-growth, part of the Château Mouton-Rothschild stable of properties, is classic Pauillac, full in body, with big, velvety tannins. It last graced our Top 100 at No. 31 in 1992 with the 1989 vintage.
