Tasting notes

A dark and intense red, Château d’Armailhac 2009 reveals a rich, beautifully fresh nose that combines ripe red fruit aromas with delicate vanilla notes. On the palate, the attack is powerful and clean, bringing mature, well-rounded tannins that allow the body to develop with great finesse. An absolute masterpiece from a legendary vintage. Opulent, complex with inky fruits and streak of gorgeously rich oak. This wine is going to be an absolute showstopper, but patience is required before enjoying it at its best.
