2019 chateau d'armailhac 5eme cru classe, pauillac
Why We're Buying
Château d'Armailhac has undergone four name changes since its inception in 1750. One thing that hasn't changed? The quality of its wine. The chateau uses a blend of four different grapes to produce a nuanced, early drinking Bordeaux.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This year the blend is 62%Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, harvested from the 19th of September to the 9th of October. The 2019 D'Armailhac sports a medium to deep garnet-purple color and notes of warm plums, stewed cherries, mulberries and blackcurrant pastilles with touches of aniseed, wild thyme and chocolate box. The medium-bodied palate has a firm frame of fine-grained tannins and bold freshness supporting the expressive black and blue fruits, finishing with a provocative herbal lift. Barrel Sample: 91-93
