Tasting notes

The 2009 vintage was a triumphant return to form for Bordeaux. Chateau d’Armailhac capitalized on the amazing weather for their wine. On the nose expect to find some development in the forms of ripe blackcurrants, bilberry, cedar, tobacco and a hint of smokiness. The palate is still very fresh with a considerate amount of dark fruit, mocha and menthol notes. A long decant is necessary to make the most of this vintage.
