Robert Parker in Wine Advocate: 'Its deep ruby color is accompanied by abundant aromas of black fruits, white chocolate, licorice and flowers. Medium-bodied, expressive, savory, pure and long with sweet tannins, it should drink well for 15 years or more.'

Château d'Armailhac 2016
As a result of this summer drought, although the berries were numerous, they remained small, bringing density and concentration of flavors
The beautiful temperatures of August and September allowed to reach a slow but excellent maturity, so that the harvest could begin the 26/09 with the Merlots and continued in perfect conditions until 14/10
In terms of fermentations, each plot, each variety was, as usual, vinified separately, to express its most striking characteristics
The wines now assembled present remarkable colors, intense aromas of fruit and spices, and a dense texture made of very rich and coated tannins
2016, by its density and its flesh, can thus be compared to the greatest vintages of the 21st century.

Reviews about Château d'Armailhac 2011
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.
