A Pauillac with intense aromas and elegant flavors

Undoubtedly, 2016 can be compared to some of the greatest vintages of the 21st century. This can be seen based on the density and mouth-feel of Armailhac's 2016. Harvested in between September 27th and October 14th, Chateau Armailhac 2016 is the pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon (62%), Merlot (28%), Cabernet Franc (8%) and Petit Verdot (2%).

Chateau d'Armailhac 2016 displays depth and density. In the nose, within the complex aromas notes of black fruits that are thick and fresh present themselves. A second bouquet of lightly toasted notes, and blueberries develop. The palate is lively and dynamic with elegant tannins. The tannins leave behind a woody licorice flavor. The finish is long and tasty, with slight notes of chocolate.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 D'Armailhac opens with gregarious crème de cassis, blackberry pie and mulberries scents with hints of chocolate box, roses and charcoal with a waft of dried sage. Medium-bodied, the palate has a rock-solid frame of firm, grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and earthy.
