[Barrel tasting] Very pure black currant fruits pour out of the glass with this wine. Yes, there are tannins, but the fruit is uplifting, fresh and very vibrant. Delicious, and likely to remain so.

[Barrel tasting] Aromas of blackberries and ripe fruit with hints of cigar box. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a rich and ripe finish. A balanced and rich wine. May be better than 2003 and 2000.

Located in the north of Pauillac, between Mouton and Pontet-Canet, this 123-acre estate is also part of G.F.A. Baronne Philippine de Rothschild. The aroma balances meaty fruit and mineral scents,; and while the pungent red fruit is always there, the tannins seem to increase their intensity with air. They cover the pure black cherry flavor like a powerful skin, deep and plush with an iron-knuckle punch. The tannins donandrsquo;t go away, but their inner velvet eventually wins out. This has improved significantly since the en primeur tastings and will continue to evolve for ten to 15 years in the bottle.

A big, sweet, soft wine, with attractive ripe blackberry fruits. Itandrsquo;s lively, smoky and licorice flavored, with delicious fresh acidity to finish.

Abundant tannin in addition to a deep ruby/purple hue, superb purity, and a lovely texture are found in this delicious Pauillac. One of the finest dandrsquo;Armailhacs I have ever tasted, it is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that achieved an amazing 13.3% natural alcohol. Aromas of black currants, creamy oak, and earth emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort. It should be drinkable in 4andndash;5 years, and will last for two decades or more.

This powerful, tannic, structured effort from Mouton-Rothschildandrsquo;s stable is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by an earthy nose dominated by black currants and toasty, smoky oak. Medium to full-bodied with relatively high tannin, decent acidity, and a fine finish, it should be at its best between 2014andndash;2030.

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.
