Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Château d'Armailhac, 5ème Cru Classé, Pauillac, 2019

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.

Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Deep ruby in colour, smoked oak on the nose, giving power and tannic frame without sacrificing the salinity and florality that is so present in Armailhac. Cassis, loganberry, cigar box, muscular tannins, cocoa bean, ash, a wine full of savour and character. 56% 1st wine. 50% new oak, and extended time in barrel for ageing, up to 18 months. Jean-Paul Voelert technical director.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

A blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2019 d'Armailhac is deep garnet-purple colored. It prances out with showy scents of crushed black and red cherries, mulberries, and cassis, plus hints of roses and violets crushed together. Medium-bodied, elegant, and with a quiet intensity, it has very soft, polished tannins and a perfumed finish.

Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2019 d'Armailhac is very perfumed, quite floral on the nose, touches of mint and cassis pinning this down as a Pauillac. The palate is medium-bodied with a slight bitterness on the entry. The tannins are rougher than its peers, yet balanced with a fresh saline, rather sinewy finish. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual 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.
