Tasting Notes

Very sweet, ripe berry aromas with exotic spices. On the palate, bold, ripe plum flavours with dark fruit notes are balanced by firm tannins and a vivacious acidity. This is a full bodied, masculine wine with plenty of depth. It will need a few years to open up. Drink 2017 - 2028

Reviews & Scores

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.
