Château d’Armailhac 2011 – Pauillac, Cru Classé

The nose is racy and offers minerality and a small fruitiness. This wine needs to be decanted. It reveals notes of blackcurrant, wild strawberry and small notes of very ripe small berries associated with fine touches of violet, cube pepper as well as discreet hints of mushroom, tobacco and an imperceptible hint of rose wood. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, gourmandize as well as an acidulous frame, a fine concentration and a small tension. On the mouth this wine expresses notes of raspberry, very ripe blackcurrant and small notes of violet associated with touches of racy minerality, wild strawberry as well as fine hints of toasted/caramelization, tobacco and graphite. Tannins are elegant, fine and straight. A beautiful persistence.
