Chateau d'Armailhac Pauillac Rotwein 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

"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.

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.

To reiterate, this may be the best d'Armailhac ever produced. The 1995 blend was 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, and 32% Merlot. This deep ruby/purple-colored wine possesses low acidity, plenty of sweet tannin, and, in both its aromatics and flavors, gobs of ripe cassis fruit are nicely framed by the judicious use of toasty oak. Flavorful, round, generous, and hedonistic, this is a crowd pleaser! Anticipates maturity: Now-2012.

This wine is just as successful as the seductive 1995... saturated ruby color is followed by sweet, roasted herb, and black currant aromas with lush toasty oak notes. A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc, this medium-weight, elegant yet richly fruity wine possesses enough tannin to last two decades, but it will be one 1996 Médoc that will be drinkable at an early age. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018.

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.

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
