1995 d'Armailhac, Pauillac
Gorgeous aromas of crushed currant, flowers and Indian spice. Full-bodied, with fine tannins. A little tight still. Give this time to show what it really has.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2007. (Web-2007)
Very dark crimson. Very fresh and aromatic - much more nose than the 1996 Armailhac. Racy and silky and really very appealing. Lots of flesh covers any dry tannin. Lots of punch and charm now. Drink 2005-2018.

The 1995 is possibly the finest d'Armailhac I have yet tasted. The blend was 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, and 32% Merlot. This deep ruby/purple-colored wine possesses low acidity, plenty of sweet tannin, and, in both its aromatics and flavors, gobs of ripe cassis fruit are nicely framed by the judicious use of toasty oak. Flavorful, round, generous, and hedonistic, this is a crowd-pleaser! (RP)
