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.

This continues to be one of the most seductive and luscious drsquo;Armailhacs I have ever tasted. It may be my favorite vintage of drsquo;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: 2007ndash;2020.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Exhibits blackberry, currant and licorice on the nose. Full and velvety, with plenty of good fruit. A balanced, fruity red. Best after 2012.
