Another sensational effort from Philippe Dhaluin, the administrator of Mouton Rothschild, this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot shows complex floral notes intermixed with forest floor, camphor, black currants and mulberries that all jump from the glass of this aromatic style of d’Armailhac. This wine possesses very good acidity, a surprisingly higher percentage of Merlot than usual, but the quality is impressive, and the good news is that there are 20,000 cases of this full-bodied beauty, which should age nicely for 15-20+ years.

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, delivering 13.85% alcohol with close 3.74 pH. The nose is a little muted at the moment despite rigorous coaxing, quite Zen-like with crushed stone, traces of blackberry leaf and cassis, gaining momentum with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly abrasive tannins on the entry although they will soften. This is a relatively masculine d’Armailhac without the glycerine you often find at this stage. More masculine, the Cabernet Sauvignon driving along to a stern but fresh finish. Good potential, but it will require cellaring more than usual. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

Very strong and muscular d’Armailhac with mineral and currant character. Full, linear and toned. Very racy and long. Plenty of finesse too. It’s 55 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 29 percent Merlot, 15 percent Cabernet Franc, and 1 Petit Verdot. jamessuckling.com

This has a nice briary core, showing dark fig and plum flavors, with a backdrop of roasted sage and tobacco. Offers good muscle and heft, but also the rounded feel of the house style. Tasted non-blind. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Tasted 17 Feb: Very ripe and scented and strangely integrated! Sweet yet with real race and freshness. Tannins well covered. Tasted open 8 Apr: Healthy crimson. Sweet, creamy nose. Real lift and polish. Slightly green on the end. The tannins are almost entirely hidden! Mid weight. I hope to taste this blind later on today… (Score: 17) Tasted blind 8 Apr: Very dark purple. Not much nose. Very luscious start to the palate and some lovely structure. Really appetising and very dry on the end. Pauillac gravelly flavours. Long. Well balanced. No brute but no coquette either. Great vivaciousness and balance. (Score: 17) jancisrobinson.com

Beautifully concentrated black fruits, already has florality and spice, refreshingly elegant and classy, a wine with individuality, spice and (for Pauillac) charm. Drink 2017-28. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

d?Armailhac 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot produced a wine that opens with cedar, 5 spice, gravel and cassis scents. Filled with chocolate covered blackberries and sweet cassis, this wine offers depth and purity of flavor. This is the second strong vintage in a row for this Pauillac. winecellarinsider.com

The deep purple 2010 d'Armailhac is a wine of great finesse, with an amazingly expressive bouquet of spices, cocoa, and roasted meat, all echoed in the layers of flavour that linger for a long time on the palate. According to the wine director of Mouton-Rothschild who guides the winemaking for this estate, this is the best d?Armailhac they have ever made. This is a very good value Bordeaux from 2010! asianpalate.com

Very dark fruit on the nose and very structured on the palate. This is a very serious d'Armailhac and certainly the best ever.
