Pauillac Special Reserve 2015, A.C. Pauillac£32.95 More info & buy The vintage balances the intensity of Cabernet sauvignon and juiciness of merlot quite brilliantly. The nose starts with spicy red fruit, then after a few minutes in the the glass layers spicy oak, cassis and vanilla emerge. All the aromas follow on from the nose to palate with charming bright fruit, ripe and approachable tannins and a spicy finish. The purity and poise, characters typical of the 2015 vintage, are evident on the nose and palate. Typical of the vintage and very 'Lafite' in style!
Château d’Armailhac 2008, Grand Cru Classe Pauillac£69.50 More info & buy Château d’Armailhac 2008 offers elegance with nicely weighed acidity and fine tannins. The nose requires an hour in the decanter to awaken, after this brief decanting period there's aromas of blackberry, charcoal, toast, peppercorns and earthy notes. There's lot of classic Pauillac character on show all built around a delicate almost feminine frame. This vintage is drinking well now, and will cellar for another decade or so.
