Raspberry mocha and coffee aromas perked up by pepper tobacco leaf and fresh herbs. Silky on entry then suave and refined in the middle palate with perfumed flavors of redcurrant leather and peppery herbs. Finishes subtle and persistent with fine-grained tannins. A very refined claret: this has turned out very well.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London.The 2006 Château d'Armailhac has a feisty bouquet with tobacco and sage-infused red berry fruit that seem open for business, unlike some of the other 2006 Pauillac wines. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite supple tannin. There is good weight in the mouth with mint-infused blackberry fruit, fine structure with admirable precision on the finish. All it lacks is the persistence of some of its peers, yet it still constitutes a very fine Pauillac that I probably under-rated out of barrel. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin

New oak is very present on the front of the nose with full ripe raspberry and lighter sage aromas pushing through. On the front palate the wine is very soft but builds on the mid-palate with nice structure and tannic strength. Higher toned acids on the mid and back palate bring in flavors of cherry and cranberry. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
