Château d'Armailhac Pauillac 2016

Château d'Armailhac belongs to Château Mouton Rothschild and it's the same team that handles the winemaking led by Mr. Philippe Dhalluin. This fine Pauillac is a blend 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot 28%, 8% and 2%, Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot. In the glass d'Armailhac has a deep garnet-purple color. The very expressive nose has notes of ripe black fruit, cassis, blackberry and roasted coffee. After a warm, soft and almost creamy starter, followed by a huge middle flavor with many fine crisp fruit that surround the fine tannins. A delicious red wine with a great aging potential. What kept longer comes this wine certainly good! According to James Suckling "The Greatest ever"
James Suckling: 94-96 / 100 Parker: 93/100

Château d'Armailhac 2016

From the point of view of climatology, the year 2016 as we lived in Pauillac can be split in two stages: - first, an extremely wet winter and spring: the first four months of the year had already received more than half of the annual rainfall, with a notable record of at least 240mm in January; - then, an extremely dry summer and autumn, without significant rainfall, which will lead to a defecate water balance at the end of the year

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.

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
