Chateau d'Armailhac 2014
The 2014 D'Armailhac has a clean and fresh bouquet with plenty of fruit: blackberry and raspberry coulis, a touch of cedar coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine line of acidity and a tangible level of mineralité on the tensile finish. This is a sophisticated d'Armailhac, probably one that will be approachable after 4-5 years. Recommended, even if I do not regard it as the greatest d'Armailhac in recent years.
