2020 Château d'Armailhac Pauillac
Château d'Armailhac belongs to Château Mouton Rothschild and it is the same team that takes care of the vinification under the direction of Mr Philippe Dhalluin. The very high-quality terroir consists of 80% of a ridge rich in stone (just like the neighbors Ch. Mouton Rothschild and Ch. Pontet Canet). After all, the mother house does everything it can to keep the quality as high as possible. The wine has had a very nice constitution and very nice volume in recent years.
This beautiful 2020 Château d'Armailhac Pauillac (Grand Cru Classé) is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. In the glass, d'Armailhac has a deep garnet purple colour. The Very expressive nose has notes of ripe black fruit, cassis, blackberries and roasted coffee. After a warm, soft and almost creamy start, an immense middle taste follows with lots of fine crispy fruit that envelop the fine tannins. The whole is fine, sensual and balanced and supported by a dosed wood bearing. The finale, which is long and very tasty, has notes of ripe fruit, chocolate and cocoa. Highly recommended! A delicious red wine with great aging potential. Keeping this wine a little longer will certainly benefit it! According to James Suckling "It's full and beautiful"
