External Reviews for Château d'Armailhac Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
(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.
Exhibits blackberry, currant and licorice on the nose. Full and velvety, with plenty of good fruit. A balanced, fruity red. Best after 2012.
(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.
Juicy red. Plenty of tobacco, berry and currant character in this. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a long finish. Best after 2008.
Medium ruby. Spicy, evolving aromas of red fruits, leather and mint. Sweet and lush, with a mellow combination of wood and fruit components complicated by animal and vanillin notes. A nicely textured, rather exuberant wine of modest depth, finishing with light but slightly green tannins. Should be excellent in three or four years.
Ruby-red. Cassis aroma lifted by flowers and sweet oak scents. Supple, sweet and full, with expressive flavors of currant, espresso and spicy oak; perhaps a bit less smoky than recent vintages. Unusually silky and suave for this wine, finishing with firm but pliant tannins. This should be approachable within three or four years.
Juicy fruit is the dominant character of this delicious, immediately accessible wine that is made by the Mouton Rothschild team. There are certainly wood layers, and huge tannins but the wonderful fresh fruit just cannot be subdued.
