Editorial Reviews for D'Armailhac
A bit funky on the nose with bushy dried herbs, gravel, and dark fruit aromatics that are attractively fresh. Tight on entry, this classic Bordeaux, a bit of over ripeness lends its truffle note here but this has structure and rich fruit, if being slightly one dimensional in the mouth today. The backend shows more intensity with black fruit that shows some and mineral notes leading to a powerfully fruity, but not frooty finish. This is a bit short today but you can feel the substance and promise in the mouth. 91pts

Slightly slow to open on th nose, but some pretty spice and cedar incense hiding behind the red berry fruit - almost like a tropical brush fire. Nice dark, seductive deep red robe. Pleasant, soft tannins on entry with more red fruit (red currant) mid-palate. Medium finish. This is somewhat lighter stuff than expected, and very approachable now. A nice, smooth, good value Paulliac. Cellar 4 years - tops.
Chocolate and tobacco with depth and many layers. Very smooth.

External Reviews for D'Armailhac
Another sensational effort from Philippe Dhaluin, the administrator of Mouton Rothschild, this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot shows complex floral notes intermixed with forest floor, camphor, black currants and mulberries that all jump from the glass of this aromatic style of d’Armailhac. This wine possesses very good acidity, a surprisingly higher percentage of Merlot than usual, but the quality is impressive, and the good news is that there are 20,000 cases of this full-bodied beauty, which should age nicely for 15–20+ years.
Dense, juicy and inviting, with bouncy briar, blackberry, steeped black currant and melted black licorice notes framed by roasted apple wood and graphite notes. The finish courses along with good definition. Energetic and tempting, but the gripping, iron-laden finish will benefit from cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2030.
60% cabernet sauvignon, 23% merlot, 15% cabernet franc, 2% petit verdot. Harvest began on Sep 28 and ended Oct 13. Toasty mocha, coffee and dark black fruit dominate the nose and palate. This powerful, pure and integrated d'Armailhac is quite refined... John Sweeney. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 d'Armailhac 6000ml
\ Love the minty, floral and dark berry aromas to this young wine. Full-bodied, with supe fine and polished tannins. Long and racy. Wonderful texture. Perhaps the best d\'Armailhac ever. 60 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 24 percent Merlot, 14 percent Cabernet Franc and 2 percent Petit Verdot.\
