Written Notes

Deep colour. Intense blackcurrant graphite aromas with savoury mocha oak notes. Concentrated dark cherry, cassis flavours, beautiful ultra-fine grainy textures and underlying mocha espresso oak. Finishes slinky and long. A very glossy buoyant wine with vigour and complexity. Tasted at the Union de Grand Crus. This is punching well above it weight when it comes to price quality ratio. On eof my picks of the vintage. Tasted at the Union des Grand Crus and Chateau Mouton Rothschild. 97 points

  • 97p

Dark purple red with violet hue. Elegant nose with fragrant fruit, blackberries and blackcurrants, hints of cedar wood and vanilla. On the palate well structured with mature tannins, freshness and fine acidity, complex flavour and excellent length. 93 

  • 93p

Ruby. Fruity, blackberries, spices, anise, detailed, blueberries, intense nose, seductive. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins. Fruity, juicy, ripe, red and dark berries, exotic, ripe, dark berries and spices, stunning effort from Armailhac this vintage, with a Mouton profile. So if Mouton is out of your league, look no further. 93-95
