Tasting notes

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.
