Hide the tasting notes

Incredible intensity of sea salt, sliced apple and dried pineapple character. Full and racy with beautiful acidity and a long, long finish. Lots of papaya, pears and pineapple. Racy.

Score: 95 - 96 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Fresh, with lemon granita, white peach and chamomile notes backed by a light twinge of tarragon. Bright, pure and refreshing, this wine has quietly improved under Dhalluin's watch. Tasted non-blind.

Score: 89 - 92 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Hide the tasting notes

Fragrant with vivid cranberry and cherry. Plump mouthfeel with well-integrated oak, finishing fresh.

Score: 90 - 92 Albany Vintners

Vibrant and fruity with currant, blueberry and spice character. Full yet tight with tension and brightness. Very velvety tannins. Sexy already.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Very bright crimson. Certainly straightforward and very directly fruity on the nose. Noticeable acidity on the palate. Very fresh red cherry flavours and not that dense. Good finish. 13.4%

Score: 16 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2019-2025

Bursts with violet, plum and raspberry fruit, lined with silky tannins and backed by a tantalizing iron hint. Features lovely brisk energy and gorgeous purity. Tasted non-blind.

50/50 M/CF in 2014 whereas 60/40 is more typical Vivid attractive nose of forest fruit and lilac. Ripe and dense with plum skins and chocolate. Concentrated and grippy with mineral grip all the way through and bone dry on the finish.

Score: 92 - 95 Albany Vintners

This is dense and compacted with pretty fruits, ultra fine tannins and a pure and intense finish. The excellent quality of the cabernet franc really shows here. Lightly salty with citrusy acidity. Chalky undertone. Half cabernet franc and half merlot. So about 10% more franc than normal.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Franc, picked 2-22 October. Very dark crimson. Not very expressive on the nose though there seems to be great density underneath. And then almost painful concentration. Verging towards Pavie, tar stew with lots of acidity. It may evolve into something lovely but for the moment it’s very hard work. Very dry end. Masses of effort has been put into this but it is not user-friendly at present.

Score: 16 - 17 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2025-2040

Features base notes of bittersweet ganache and smoldering tobacco, with dark plum, currant and fig fruit flavors. Despite the charcoal thread, this is lush and integrated, showing no aggressive edges at all. The tobacco accent chimes in at the end for added effect.

Score: 93 - 96 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Armailhac Pauillac Unreleased - - 90-92 93-94 17 90-93 -
Hide the tasting notes

Perfumed black fruit with spices and toast, then round and chocolatey; quite dense in fact with a little bitterness on the long finish.

Score: 90 - 92 Albany Vintners

Very minerally, silky and refined with a full body, firm tannins and currants, stones and citrus. Racy and fine. This has a little more merlot in the blend but is mostly cabernet sauvignon as always. One of the best Armailhacs in a long time.

Score: 93 - 94 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Mid crimson. Clean, sweet and mild on the nose, a little toasty and some polish. Correct and not too drying, with some green notes - very un-luscious. A little demanding and austere but with good energy and sleekness. The finish is impressively long. An interesting wine that is so low key that at first I almost overlooked it.

Score: 17 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2021-2032

Bright, juicy and engaging, with a racy damson plum and red currant core striped with singed cedar and vanilla and backed by a good twinge of iron. This is brisk and pleasantly taut. Textbook Pauillac. Tasted non-blind.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Hide the tasting notes

Deep colour with a classic nose of juicy blackberry fruit and cigar box continuing onto the palate. Soft black fruit, a hint of spice and a strictness to the structure making this a traditionally-styled claret.

Score: - Albany Vintners

A solid wine with tar, dark chocolate and berry character. Full and chewy. Impressive.

Score: 90 - 91 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Pretty dark purplish crimson. Broad, luscious nose. Energetic and well balanced even if only medium weight and medium ambition. Easy to like with attractive fairly open fruit, even if hardly complex or long term. Drying finish with grainy, sandy tannins.

Score: 16 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2018-2026
