Chateau d'Armailhac Pauillac 2008
Wine EnthusiastThis is very black currant in character, with crisp fresh fruits to go with the bright acidity. There are tannins certainly, lightened by the fruity character of the wine.
Wine SpectatorWarm tobacco, mulled plum and dark fig notes move through this medium-weight offering, with rounded edges, but good bass notes of loam and iron keep it honest on the finish. Drink now through 2016.
Wine AdvocateA dense plum/purple color is followed by a supple, evolved, medium-bodied wine revealing an elegant bouquet of red and black currants, charcoal, toast and earth. Enjoy this impressive 2008 over the next 12-15 years.
