2010 Ch. d'Armailhac, Pauillac

Ch. d'Armailhac, Pauillac
This is an explosive raspberry flavour sensation! The complete opposite to the masculine Clerc Milon, it is soft, silky, elegant, curvy and oozing sex appeal; luscious! Probably the wine I'm looking forward to buying for myself the most this vintage. It’s their best to date. There is some amazing work going on around Mouton these days.
(60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot)

Ch. d'Armailhac, Pauillac
Beautifully concentrated black fruits, already has florality and spice, refreshingly elegant and classy, a wine with individuality, spice and (for Pauillac) charm.

Ch. d'Armailhac, Pauillac
Tasted 17 Feb: Very ripe and scented and strangely integrated! Sweet yet with real race and freshness. Tannins well covered. Tasted open 8 Apr: Healthy crimson. Sweet, creamy nose. Real lift and polish. Slightly green on the end. The tannins are almost entirely hidden! Mid weight. I hope to taste this blind later on today… (Score: 17 18-30)

Tasted blind 8 Apr: Very dark purple. Not much nose. Very luscious start to the palate and some lovely structure. Really appetising and very dry on the end. Pauillac gravelly flavours. Long. Well balanced. No brute but no coquette either. Great vivaciousness and balance. (Score: 17 18-30)

Ch. d'Armailhac, Pauillac
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.
(93+ Robert Parker- Wine Advocate- Feb 2013)

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, the 2010 achieved in excess of 14% natural alcohol. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with a pronounced nose of underbrush, cedarwood, licorice and black currants. This attractive, elegant, mid-weight Pauillac should be drinkable early in life and last for 15+ years.

Ch. d'Armailhac, Pauillac
This has a nice briary core, showing dark fig and plum flavors, with a backdrop of roasted sage and tobacco. Offers good muscle and heft, but also the rounded feel of the house style. Tasted non-blind.
