Reviews:

"This juicy red sports dark plum, fig and boysenberry fruit backed by an equally strong wave of bramble and sweet tobacco notes. The cast-iron spine pins down the finish, so give this a little time to integrate fully. Best from 2023 through 2038." -Rated 93, Wine Spectator

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 D'Armailhac opens with gregarious crème de cassis, blackberry pie and mulberries scents with hints of chocolate box, roses and charcoal with a waft of dried sage. Medium-bodied, the palate has a rock-solid frame of firm, grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and earthy." -Rated 93, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"This is a ripe wine, full of black fruits with attractive tannins. It has depth but the wine is more about fruitiness and relatively quick development. Drink this already delicious, lightly spicy wine from 2022." -Rated 90, Wine Enthusiast

"There's fairly high acidity on the attack here, and yet it's well balanced by a body that's richer and deeper than in many years of Armailhac. You can definitely feel the texture and the powerful depth of brambly fruit, and there are also some of the signature lilting floral notes, given extra charge through graphite, liquorice, cassis, and that pulsating acidity. Great quality. 2% Petit Verdot completes the blend. Drinking Window 2024 – 2038." -Rated 93, Decanter

"The 2016 d'Armailhac is surprisingly dense and powerful, almost shockingly so. A burst of sweet red cherry, tobacco, smoke, earth and grilled herbs gives the wine a smoky, savory dimension that is quite attractive and nicely complements the intense fruit. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2016 is massively tannic, even if that is not always evident because of the wine's raciness and pure fruit density. The Cabernet Sauvignon is especially dominant today. D'Armailhac often develops into a fairly rustic Pauillac, so it will be interesting to see what happens here. Tasted three times." -Rated 91, Vinous

"This is a really driven d’Armailhac showing blackcurrants and fruit tea with hints of bark on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, very firm and structured with a long and powerful finish. Direct and linear. Try after 2023." -Rated 95, James Suckling
