Reviews for 2010 d'Armailhac Bordeaux Blend

WS 95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2011
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. -J.M.

Filled with chocolate covered blackberries and sweet cassis this wine offers depth and purity of flavor. This is the second strong vintage in a row for this Pauillac.

Very strong and muscular d'Armailhac with mineral and currant character. Full linear and toned. Very racy and long. Plenty of finesse too. It's 55% Cabernet Sauvignon 29% Merlot 15% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 23% Merlot 15% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot delivering 13.85% alcohol with close 3.74 pH. The nose is a little muted at the moment despite rigorous coaxing quite Zen-like with crushed stone traces of blackberry leaf and cassis gaining momentum with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly abrasive tannins on the entry although they will soften. This is a relatively masculine d'Armailhac without the glycerine you often find at this stage. More masculine the Cabernet Sauvignon driving along to a stern but fresh finish. Good potential but it will require cellaring more than usual. Drink 2017-

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.

Toasty mocha coffee and dark black fruit dominate the nose and palate. This powerful pure and integrated d'Armailhac is quite refined at the same time. The fresh vibrant acidity makes this pleasant and approachable upon release and this will age gracefully through 2030.

Deep, dark color – very saturated! Lots of rich fruit aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant and cassis flood the nose along with mineral and bramble. Fresh and sweet-tart black fruit up front as classic tobacco and gravel... Deep, dark color – very saturated! Lots of rich fruit aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant and cassis flood the nose along with mineral and bramble. Fresh and sweet-tart black fruit up front as classic tobacco and gravel emerge on the palate to support. Fine tannic structure here, too. This is an aromatic and classic d’Armailhac that will become very elegant in 5-10 years. Drink now with a decant.
