Chunky cherry and black currant fruit emerge from this medium-bodied, tasty, pure Pauillac. Although there is not a lot of depth, texture or length, what is there is pleasant. Drink it over the next 7-10 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

The 2011 Chateau d’Armailhac is a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Tasted on three occasions, it is has fine purity with black cherries and raspberry leaf, a less flamboyant d’Armailhac that usual at this early juncture. The palate is medium-bodied with a sappy, succulent entry that has fine tension. I appreciate the balance and substance of this d’Armailhac that shows impressive cohesion and a fine, chalky tannic frame towards the finish. This should turn out to be a respectable 2011. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. Dark velvety crimson. Cedary cassis and oak spice. Marked freshness, lightish on the palate, delicate, elegant and finishes fresh and lively. Finesse on the tannin front. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

From a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the wine opens with espresso and blackberry scents. Medium-bodied, fresh, charming and easy to like, the wine ends with fresh cassis. theWineCellarInsider.com

This full bodied and generous d'Armailhac is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon 57%, Merlot 28%, Cabernet Franc 13% and 2% Petit Verdot. The tannins while being plentiful and firm are velvety and plush in texture. The palate shows off an array of savoury flavours and blackberry fruits that are layered and fairly long. A balanced wine with complex flavours and minerality. Jeannie Cho Lee MW, AsianPalate.com

Closed on the nose but the extrovert palate is absolutely full of fruit. Good concentration and length. Good quality this year.
