Packed with dark tannins and spicy wood the wine is rich dark and very structured. It is powered as much by its tannins as its wood. R.V.

The 2011 Chateau d'Armailhac is a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon 28% Merlot 13% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Tasted on three occasions it is has fine purity with black cherries and raspberry leaf a less flamboyant d'Armailhac that usual at this early juncture. The palate is medium-bodied with a sappy succulent entry that has fine tension. I appreciate the balance and substance of this d'Armailhac that shows impressive cohesion and a fine chalky tannic frame towards the finish. This should turn out to be a respectable 2011. Tasted April 2012.

A strong effort from this property situated between Pontet-Canet and Mouton Rothschild d'Armailhac's blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon 28% Merlot and the rest mostly Cabernet Franc and a touch of Petit Verdot was harvested... A strong effort from this property situated between Pontet-Canet and Mouton Rothschild d'Armailhac's blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon 28% Merlot and the rest mostly Cabernet Franc and a touch of Petit Verdot was harvested between September 14-24. Its deep ruby color is accompanied by abundant aromas of black fruits white chocolate licorice and flowers. Medium-bodied expressive savory pure and long with sweet tannins it should drink well for 15+ years.

Subtle, vinous aromas of blackcurrant, sour red cherry, violet and minerals. Sweet and silky on entry, then tight in the middle, showing terrific purity and verve to the flavors of red fruits, sweet spices and flowers. Finishes sappy and lightly saline, with fine tannins and outstanding length. This terrific, perfumed wine is heavily marked by its cabernet franc presence.

Harvest began on September 12 and finished on September 28. Aged 16 months in 30% new oak. Deep ruby color the nose offers notes of perfectly ripe plum cassis and wet pavement. Opulent and rich with black cherry coffee and subtle oak flavors along with silky well-integrated tannins. Finishes long with a balanced acidity that few wines achieved this vintage. This showed very well. Enjoy 2017-2027.
