Château D’Armailhac 2010 – Pauillac, Cru Classé

The nose is fresh, powerful, elegant, racy and offers a beautiful fine/very finely tight grain, a flowery side and complexity. It reveals notes of Boysen berry, violet and small notes of wild cassis associated with touches of Sichuan pepper, peony, lily, fresh nutmeg as well as hints of racy minerality, clove, fine hints of fresh tobacco and an imperceptible hint of fresh truffle. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy/mineral frame, a good definition, gourmandize as well as a certain tension, a racy minerality, precision, a beautiful very tight finesse of the grain, a fine flowery side, fullness, a fine spheric side and a small fat. On the palate this wine expresses notes of pulpy cassis, violet, lilyand small notes of Boysen berry associated with touches of small quite ripe red berries, cherry, peony as well as fine hints of dry tobacco, Sichuan pepper, rose, clove, very discreet hints of underwood and a subtle hint of mocha. An imperceptible almost iodine hint (brings sapidity) on the finish/persistence. Tannins are elegant and finely firm.
