($30-$39) Full ruby-red. Aromas of blackcurrant, smoke and roasted, nutty oak. Concentrated and sweet but in the process of shutting down. Impressively dark, primary flavors of cassis, violet and bitter chocolate supported by sound acids. A rich but slightly medicinal wine that is no doubt better than it's showing today.

This continues to be one of the most seductive and luscious d'Armailhacs I have ever tasted. It may be my favorite vintage of d'Armailhac. Opaque purple-colored, this blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Merlot has surprisingly good acidity with the high Merlot content and high tannin, but an expressive, opulent mid-texture and loads of charcoal-infused, cedary, black currant fruit intermixed with spice box, dried herbs, and espresso notes. The wine is full-bodied, sweet, and expansive.

Juicy red. Plenty of tobacco, berry and currant character in this. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a long finish. 15,415 cases made.

About This Producer


This chateau has undergone so many name changes within the last few decades that it's amazing it knows who it is. Nevertheless, the wines from this chateau, one of three Pauillac estates owned by the late Baron Philippe de Rothschild (the others are Mouton-Rothschild and Clerc-Milon) provide steady, classic examples of Pauillac power and purity. The blend at this estate, from 50+ hectares of vines, favors Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and so produces a less muscular Bordeaux.
