2015 d'Armailhac, Pauillac

SKU #1372762 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Berries and smoke with some wet-earth and leather undertones. Medium to full body, round and velvety tannins and a juicy and delicious finish. Like the walnut and coffee undertone. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 d'Armailhac is a very sexy wine. Pliant, open-knit and delicious, the 2015 is super-classy. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, blood orange and floral notes are seamlessly woven together in a surprisingly finessed wine for this property. Gracious and racy to the core, d'Armailhac is quite attractive. Based on what I have tasted over the last few years, quality appears to be on the rise, and that is always great to see. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2015 D'Armailhac displays a medium to deep garnet-purple color and exuberant notions of exotic spices and potpourri over a core of black and red cherry preserves plus wild blueberries and a waft of tar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals mouth-filling, juicy black berry flavors with approachable, grainy tannins and wonderful freshness on the finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is firm, almost classically Pauillac in its black currants and acidity. The tannins are present behind the bright fruit and crisp texture. This wine has a dry core that will need to soften. Drink from 2025. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A singed vanilla and alder frame keeps a medium-weight core of plum and black currant fruit coiled up while tobacco and violet details fill in. A pretty, fine-edged chalky spine holds the finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This starts slow, then gets into its stride. There is more sand in the terroir at Armailhac than Mouton, which is why its tannins are so fine, and why it often seems so refined even when young. This has a good level of freshness and juicy red fruits, but it's a touch austere. It softens in the glass, and after a few minutes the fruit turns more brambly and attractive. This should be approachable within six to eight years. 35% new oak, because the aim is for earlier drinking than the other wines in the stable. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Particularly bright crimson. Savoury, lively nose. Drier and lighter than most but racy and satisfying in the new style. Good freshness and breadth. Really very polished. 17.5/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2016)
