Chateau d'Armailhac Pauillac 2018
Part of the Mouton Rothschild family collection, Chateau d'Armailhac was named after the first owners of the estate, Dominique d'Armailhacq. The vineyard covers 70 hectares in the northern part of Pauillac, an extension of the Carruades de Mouton plateau. The soil of Pauillac is made up of deep gravelly soil and clay-limestone base.
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 D’Armailhac (a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot) hits the ground running with wonderfully open-knit, flamboyant scents of Morello cherries, black raspberries, blackcurrant jelly and rose oil, leading to an undercurrent of cinnamon toast, aniseed and mossy tree bark. The medium to full-bodied palate is charged with energy and expressiveness, delivering red and black berry layers with loads of spicy sparks, framed by plush tannins, finishing long and fragrant."
