Château d'Armailhac 2008

2008 will be remembered as a particularly unstable climate year., After a cool, wet spring (temperatures near 0 ° C 7 April), found in June a season long but the growth cycle of the vine is delayed. , July shows sunny and dry, but summer is continued by August subdued, increasing the requirement for monitoring in the vineyard., however the August rainfall, according to the average, do not cause excess water and groundwater levels at comparable levels to those achieved in recent years.,, the first half of September is still suffering a lack of sunshine, which portends a difficult vintage., Fortunately, an extraordinary Indian summer begins September 14 and continues until October 20, reversing completely the situation., the good weather before harvest drives up levels of alcohol and permett ent to obtain a very good phenolic ripeness., In order to achieve optimum ripening of the grapes and enjoying the beautiful weather, the harvest is delayed and takes place from October 2 to 15, to get the grapes in excellent health. He will have to be patient to reap the 2008 vintage, and particularly demand from vine to wine

Château d'Armailhac Baron Philippe de Rothschild 2008

The vineyard of Château d'Armailhac, an 1855 Classified Growth under the name Mouton d'Armailhacq, covers 70 hectares in the northern part of Pauillac. An extension of the Carruades de Mouton plateau, the Plateau des Levantines et de l'Obélisque, made up of light and very deep gravelly soil, is the preferred terroir of Cabernet grapes. The deep gravelly soil of the Plateau de Pibran rests on a clay-limestone base, giving the Château d'Armailhac wines their characteristic refinement and elegance. The light gravelly soil of the Croupe de Béhéré is up to three metres deep.

4/5

This wine has all the love and all possible techniques to make this wine a perfect wine, flawless. It is the result of a marriage between four grape varieties with predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
The 2011 vintage has a captivating dress. A sustained purple with dark black highlights.
The nose is open facing delicate notes of red fruits such as blackberry and cherry evolving towards grilled and roasted notes.
The palate offers a powerful and fruity attack. A wide mouth, dense with woody and spicy mid-palate. The tannins are fine and silky with good density. The finish is extremely long with woody notes.
A wine with great aging potential.
Drink or keep: 2014 - 2027
PAIRING: Tournedos Rossini
