Château d'Armailhac Pauillac 5ème Grand Cru Classé

Wine Details



Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Deliciously fruity, with chocolate notes and acidity. The wine has dense but soft tannins that merge seamlessly into the black fruits. It is ripe, sweet, densely juicy.

Winemaker's Notes

"Big, juicy wine. Intensely grapey. Gushing with fruit. Full-bodied and chewy. Smoky and gamy. Armailhac gets better and better."
