This 2009 Chateau d'Armailhac displays a dark, intense red colour. This sunny vintage gave generosity to this wine; it then reveals a rich nose of good aromatic freshness. This vintage combines well-ripened red berry aromas and delicate vanilla notes. On the palate, this Pauillac shows a powerful and straight attack, on a full mid-palate around well-ripened, blended tannins of perfectly regular texture. The evolution is delicate. The 2009 Chateau d'Armailhac is a fleshy wine, enhanced by lightly grilled woody notes, and unveils a persistent finish. The property here signed one of its greatest vintages. It is expected to let the wine age in the bottle for a few decades, in order to develop the most remarkable expression specific to this Pauillac terroir. This 5th classified growth has an exceptional ageing potential. 

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2009 Château d'Armailhac has a lovely nose, the Cabernet Sauvignon component more expressive compared to my previous encounter, graphite infusing the generous black fruit that is in keeping with the style. The palate is medium-bodied with touches of cherry liqueur and spice on the entry, the Merlot in the driving seat with good acidity and a lively, spicy finish with tobacco, hickory and black pepper on the aftertaste. It is a delicious d'Armailhac that is just about ready to rock 'n roll. Tasted August 2016.
