Tasting Note:

Produced from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Of the entire Mouton stable, d'Armailhac was possibly the most coherent and successful wine we tasted. It is not wildly complex, but it is reassuringly honest and will no doubt be a very satisfying and appealing Claret in 6-10 years' time. Perfumed fruit, notes of crème de mûre and just a hint of Asian spice. The palate is brimming with crisp jammy fruit - this is not taut or particularly defined, but it is enjoyable and authentic. The tannins are a touch rustic, but overall this is a very pleasing wine.
