Château d’Armailhac 2000 Paulliac
Origin: Paulliac, Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux, France
Blend: cabernet sauvignon (50%), merlot (36%), cabernet franc (12%), petit verdot (2%)
Producer's Notes: A deep and intense colour with a slightly brickish hue.
Initially discreet, the nose opens up to reveal a variety of red fruit and humus aromas together with some subtle biscuity, toasty notes.
Well-structured on the palate, its expressive tannins are mingled with a host of red fruit and spice flavours.
The long and flavoursome finish plays more on refinement than power.
