Tasting Note:

Produced from 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2019 d’Armailhac is fragrant and pleasing. Initially there is plenty of clove infused fruit, interspersed with savoury, mineral notes. Very Cabernet dominated: cassis, vanilla and spice. The palate is packed with juicy griotte and hints of chocolate. Not profound, but there’s an honesty and freshness that points towards a good future. The tannins are quite chalky and a touch rustic, but we expect élevage to smooth out any rough edges. This should be a good value Pauillac.
