    The 2009 d’Armailhac has a lovely bouquet with ample blackberry, boysenberry, graphite and light mint aromas - very Pauillac and very well focused. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannin, moderate acidity, good depth and very grippy. It is not the most complex Pauillac in this group but there is fine persistence with pure black cherry and hints of cassis towards the finish. Fine. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting.

    Château d'Armailhac

    Owned by the Baron Philippe de Rothschild empire, d’Armailhac has benefited from financial investment of its parent and the technological know-how of First Growth partner Mouton Rothschild. Situated to the north east of Pauillac on three plots: Plateau des Levantines et de L’Obelisque (near the Carruades croupe), Plateau de Petit Pibran and Le Croupe de Behere. There are currently 50 hectares of vines planted with 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Since 2005 the wines have been of excellent quality and the bar is continually being raised. For those who want First Growth wine-making at a fraction of the cost, you’d do well to look at Clerc Milon and d’Armailhac.
