Château d'Armailhac Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

$72

Acquired by Baron Philippe in 1933 and previously known as Mouton d'Armailhacq, the chateau was subsequently called Mouton Baron Philippe then Mouton Baronne Philippe before part of its original identity was restored in 1989, when it was renamed Chateau d'Armailhac. A dark and intense red, the Chateau D'Armailhac 2009 reveals a rich, beaytifuly fresh nose that combines ripe red fruit aromas with delicate roasted and vanilla notes. On the palate, the attack is powerful and clean bringing mature, well- rounded tannins that allow the body to develop with great finesse. Full bodied, the wine is distinguished by touches of slightly roasted oak and reveals an elegant, lingering finish.

Sipping Fine Wine Delectable Pro

Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe red fruit and complex spice from this 4 grape Left Bank blend. Classified as a Fifth Growth in 1855, the palate shows concentrated fruit flavors of black cherry and red plums with tobacco, bitter cacao and smoky oak. a powerhouse blend with smooth fine tannins, well balanced. Long finish ending with fruit, oak and earthy notes. Very well done!

Decanted 90 minutes prior. Nose of black currant, graphite and tobacco leaves. The palate is medium bodied with a nice rich texture and rounded silky tannins, good fun bottle without being great, still has a lot of time ahead of it. Nez de cassis, graphite et feuille de tabac. Bouche avec une belle texture riche et des tannins assez enveloppées, c’est bon mais sans grande émotion et cela va tenir la route très longtemps encore. 90-91

At a very good stage of maturity: balanced, harmonic and with the perfect degree of acidity (according to my personal taste of course).
