Chateau d'Armailhac 2006

This 2006 confirms a very classic wine of good freshness with a solid and precise structure considering its good acidity. 2006 Chateau d'Armailhac exhibits a ruby-tinted deep red colour. On the nose, this Pauillac is powerful with a subtle mix of well-ripped red berries and a nice, perfectly blended woody note, carried by vanilla notes and lightly toasted bread. On the palate this 2006 5e cru classé Chateau d'Armailhac is carefully built. Its attack is frank and gives way to a good breadth. The wine evolves in finesse with a tasty sensation. The tannins, pleasant and silky, distinguish the flask. One can enjoy the return of the fruit, enhanced by delicate woody notes. This wine balance is worth the great vintages and encourages having other sips, with moderation.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London.The 2006 Château d'Armailhac has a feisty bouquet with tobacco and sage-infused red berry fruit that seem open for business, unlike some of the other 2006 Pauillac wines. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite supple tannin. There is good weight in the mouth with mint-infused blackberry fruit, fine structure with admirable precision on the finish. All it lacks is the persistence of some of its peers, yet it still constitutes a very fine Pauillac that I probably under-rated out of barrel. Tasted January 2016.
