Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 92

Good bright ruby-red. Complex, perfumed aromas of blueberry, boysenberry, smoke, mocha, spices and cedar. Sweet and plush in the mouth, with an enticing floral element and a whiff of orange peel lifting the blueberry, coffee, camphor and spice flavors. Fine-grained, concentrated, minerally Pauillac with suave, fully buffered tannins and excellent length and lingering perfume. And no shortage of acidity here.

Another sensational effort from Philippe Dhaluin, the administrator of Mouton Rothschild, this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot shows complex floral notes intermixed with forest floor, camphor, black currants and mulberries that all jump from the glass of this aromatic style of d'Armailhac. This wine possesses very good acidity, a surprisingly higher percentage of Merlot than usual, but the quality is impressive, and the good news is that there are 20,000 cases of this full-bodied beauty, which should age nicely for 15-20+ years.

Medium bodied for a Pauillac. Decent flavors but still a bit tannic. The tannins may soften with age but the body will never be there.

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.
