Tasting Notes and Scores

91-93

Wine Advocate

Reminiscent of a modern-day version of this estate's delicious 1999, the 2021 d'Armailhac is a terrific wine bursting with aromas of wild berries, cherries, exotic spices and rose petals. Medium to full-bodied, supple and seamless, it's fleshy and enveloping, with melting tannins and an ample core of sweet, succulent fruit. This is a pleasure-bent wine that will offer a broad drinking window.
William Kelley, April 2022

Antonio Galloni

The 2021 d'Armailhac is elegant and lithe in feel. Bright floral and savory notes lend freshness throughout a core of red berry fruit. In this tasting, Armailhac comes across as a bit vegetal, with slightly angular contours that hopefully will resolve with élevage. This is the first vintage made in the château's new cellar. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2022

Matthew Jukes

With new winemaker directrice Lucie Lauilhé at the helm of a new facility, this wine marks the first chapter in d’Armailhac’s next thriller. Small tweaks were made in 2021, with the same percentage of oak used but more sensitive toasting levels employed, and this relaxation in spiciness balances nicely with quieter fruit and a more sensual wine overall. This is a silky, not velvety, wine, and the Cabernet Franc adds lovely perfume as well as crisp acidity to the finish. It is clear that this is a thoughtful creation, and with lovely length and a palate that is, according to Estates Manager Jean-Emmanuel Danjoy, growing every day, this is an impressive wine for d’Armailhac.
