This is very tannic yet polished and firm with currants, bark, and stones. Full-bodied and muscular and linear. Love the length. Beautiful. Try in 2020.

(WS90–93 points) Bright, juicy and engaging, with a racy damson plum and red currant core striped with singed cedar and vanilla and backed by a good twinge of iron. This is brisk and pleasantly taut.

This is brisk and pleasantly taut. Textbook Pauillac. Tasted non-blind. — J.M.

As a result, this wine has delicious fruitiness and a crisp edge to go with the background of tannins.

The 2014 d’Armailhac has an open, expressive, engaging bouquet with cedar and pencil-lead infused black fruit. Compared to its peers it feels more austere but that does not detract from its precision and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, well judged acidity, clean and precise with a compelling edginess towards the mineral-driven finish. Bon vin! Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. -- Neal Martin

(WA88-90 points) The Château d’Armailhac 2014 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot (slightly more Merlot than usual.) It will be matured in around one-third new oak. The opulence and richness is immediately apparent on the nose with hints of black olive infusing the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly grainy tannin, quite dense black fruit with a spicy attack towards the saline finish. It feels a little abrasive at the moment but the rough edges should be rounded by the time. - Neal Martin
