Chateau d’Armailhac 2001

87 points

Paulliac, Bordeaux, France. 12.5%

Dark colour. Quite big but with some green notes. Plenty of French oak, not in any way sweet though. Robust. Compared to the 2002 this wine is rustic, the fruit doesn’t sing, the whole structure is less pristine and fine. Good wine, but it really highlights to me how well they did in 2002.
