1996 Château d'Armailhac
|Varietal:||Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, & Cabernet Franc & Petite Verdot|
The wine still has a rather deep red colour and a bouquet which opens on wild berry fruit, blackcurrant and black cherry mingled with a subtle suggestion of mint. Full-bodied, it has a fine tannic structure, dense and rich, firm but not aggressive, combined with blackcurrant, vanilla, toast and a hint of smoke. Seductively complex, this is a very fine vintage.
