62% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc. Rich, fruitcake aromas. Plush and powerful. Tannins are rounded on the palate, drinkable but not quite ready. Impressive concentration and purity without being forceful (17.5).

Score: 17 - 18 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2018-2028

Potent nose with black plums, chocolate, espresso and mineral notes. Rich and ripe with lots of concentration here, beautiful texture with very well-made with lush black fruit experssion and purity and mocha on the finish. Long.

Score: 92 - 94 Albany Vintners

Sexy and elegant for the vintage. A blueberry, floral and citrus character on the nose and palate. Full body, with an impressive density for the vintage and a pretty, bright finish. Excellent length.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

The Grand Vin, which this year contains only the old vine Cabernet Franc (representing 38% of the blend) has a conservative bouquet, without the thrills and spills of the 2009 or 2010 and it seems rather straight-laced and linear. That is not necessarily a bad thing: this is nicely focused and controlled. The palate is medium-bodied with fine acidity, impressive tension and focus with a pleasing sense harmony towards the finish. Whilst it is not a flamboyant Angelus, this is a classy Saint Emilion for drinking over the next decade. Tasted April 2014.

Score: 90 - 92 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

A little more Merlot than usual (68%). Mainly old-vine Cabernet Franc. Crimson hue. Expressive dark fruit nose. Lighter bodied but harmonious. Long and structured all the same. (90+ Points)

[Add to shopping basket] Armailhac Pauillac £250 £250 - £330 - 16-17 89-92 87-88 88-90 90

59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. Pure black cassis fruit, light style on the palate. Slightly simple on the mid palate, though the spiciness is very charming on the finish. Correct balance, easy drinking, especially for Pauillac. (16.5)

Score: 16 - 17 JancisRobinson.com, Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com Maturity: 2015-2025

An intense direct nose. Attractive and juicy with bright crunchy black cherry and blackcurrant fruit and mocha and nicely judged toast on the finish. Good balance.

Score: 89 - 92 Albany Vintners

A pleasant, fruity wine with hints of hazelnut and currant character. Medium body, firm tannins and a clean finish that's a little light. 59% cabernet sauvignon, 28% merlot, 12% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot.

Score: 87 - 88 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

The d'Armailhac is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot cropped at a whopping (for the vintage) 40hl/ha. It has quite an open, powerful bouquet in keeping with the d'Armailhac style: blackberry, cedar and graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, grippy tannins, good depth with a touch of spice on the finish. Fine.

Score: 88 - 90 Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

Fine purple-red, fragrant nose, expressive and even exuberant, a Pauillac with charm and good tannins for the future.

Score: 90 Decanter, Decanter.com Maturity: 2018-2028

Lightly tangy in feel, with damson plum and star anise leading the way for black cherry and blackberry fruit. Offers well-integrated toast, with a juniper note threading everything together and a lingering spice note. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Tasted non-blind.

Score: 88 - 91 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The 2013 is very pretty and silky in the glass. Violets, plums, smoke, tobacco and graphite meld together effortlessly in a gracious, mid-weight wine that impresses for its length, energy and vibrancy. Overall, this is a solid showing for the year, although some slight elements of greenness lurk beneath the fruit. The blend is 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, harvested between October 1 and 14. Tasted twice.

Score: 86 - 89 Antonio Galloni, www.vinousmedia.com
