Tasting Notes

From Chateau DArmailhac: “The colour is dark and intense, almost black. The nose opens on fruit aromas, especially black cherry, followed by toasted, roasted notes. The wine is immediately full and powerful on the attack, with well-rounded tannins and fruit flavours that develop notes of vanilla, roasted coffee and toasted nuts. The long finish is sustained by slightly toasted, oaky flavours. A powerful Château d’Armailhac of considerable refinement.”
