An important reference of the prestigious Pauillac appellation, on the left bank of Bordeaux, the Grand Cru Classé Château d’Armailhac has achieved another beautiful vintage, the 2018.
Despite a difficult first 6 months of the year 2018, a beautiful summer with record sunshine and high temperatures made it possible for the grapes to reach the ideal stage of ripeness in time for harvest. The small berries were endowed with an exceptional richness in sugars and tannins. The harvest began with Merlot on September 12 and ended on October 3 with Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot.
Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (5%), the Château d'Armailhac 2018 displays a deep colour with shimmering garnet red reflections. The rich aromatic bouquet reveals notes of ripe fruit, while swirling the glass reveals spicy notes and dark chocolate. From the onset, the powerful palate highlights the structure of the vintage, with tannins of great elegance. The wine develops nicely in the mouth, offering fresh menthol and liquorice notes, as well as some roasted flavours. The finish is long and harmonious, leaving behind a pleasant smooth texture. A great vintage from Château d'Armailhac.
