This wine is just as successful as the seductive 1995hellip; 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 Meacute;doc that will be drinkable at an early age. Anticipated maturity: 2004ndash;2018.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90-93Abundant 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 d'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 4-5 years, and will last for two decades or more.

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.

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.

(60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc & 1% Petit Verdot) Dense blackberry color with thick purple rim. The aroma is ripe, focused and reserved, while the palate is fresh, clean and positive with excellent balance. The finish is particularly attractive and is marked by sweet, ripe fruit. One of the very best values of 2005 in the Medoc. Robert Parker 90+, Wine Spectator 90.

This fifth-growth, part of the Chacirc;teau 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.
