Château d’Armailhac 2003 Paulliac
Origin: Paulliac, Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux, France
Blend: cabernet sauvignon (60%), merlot (40%),
Producer's Notes: The wine has an attractive, forthright red colour and a refined, fruity nose on which cherry aromas mingle with violet and tobacco.
Round on the palate, with plenty of body and heft, it wraps its already silky tannins around a host of succulent flavours (red fruit, caramel, liquorice, menthol, roast coffee) to make a richly aromatic whole.
The finish bursts with fruit, rounding off a complete, refined and well-structured wine that is both vigorous and seductive, embodying all the allure of a very fine d’Armailhac.
