Tasting Note:

Philippe Dhalluin and the Mouton Rothschild team have made a big strides at this fifth grown Pauillac. What once was a pretty unremarkable wine is now a serious and consistent contender. In 2016 d'Armailhac is all sap and flowers on the bouquet, with a concentrated core of bright, crunchy dense hedgerow fruit and cassis. The tannic structure is firm and hints at a long life ahead. 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.
