Despite a year full of contrasts in the middle of the vegetative cycle and a fresher, barely sunny and drier August than usual, the highly expected Indian summer - exceptional and long - allowed a harvest in perfect conditions. Indeed, it gave the time to pick the grapes at an optimum ripeness, on the model of a magnificent Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot blend. This 2014 Armailhac is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. This wine offers a dense and intense colour. This Pauillac gives off, with refinement, aromas of wild blueberry and cherry liqueur, completed by liquorice and spicy notes. It shows a nice balance on the palate; the tannins are structured and blended in a full-body and unctuousness, and combine candied fruit expressions. The finish reveals a promising wine, associated to an initial fruit which gives the wine a very good length. 

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Château dArmailhac 2014 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot (slightly more Merlot than usual.) It will be matured in around one-third new oak. The opulence and richness is immediately apparent on the nose with hints of black olive infusing the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly grainy tannin, quite dense black fruit with a spicy attack towards the saline finish. It feels a little abrasive at the moment but the rough edges should be rounded by the time.
