Chateau d'Armailhac 2005
92 points- International Wine Cellar:
"Deep red-ruby. Currant, blueberry, leather, graphite and nutty oak on the nose. Silky-sweet and large-scaled for this wine, with perfectly integrated acidity and a deep minerality leavening the wine's volume. This boasts terrific volume and finishes with sweet tannins and excellent racy length. Getting better and better in barrel. Range: 90-92"
92 points- Wine & Spirits:
"Located in the north of Pauillac, between Mouton and Pontet-Canet, this 123-acre estate is also part of G.F.A. Baronne Philippine de Rothschild. The aroma balances meaty fruit and mineral scents, and while the pungent red fruit is always there, the tannins seem to increase their intensity with air. They cover the pure black cherry flavor like a powerful skin, deep and plush with an iron-knuckle punch. The tannins don't go away, but their inner velvet eventually wins out. This has improved significantly since the en primeur tastings and will continue to evolve for ten to 15 years in the bottle."
90 points- Wine Spectator:
"Exhibits blackberry, currant and licorice on the nose. Full and velvety, with plenty of good fruit. A balanced, fruity red. Best after 2012."
90 points- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate :
"This powerful, tannic, structured effort from Mouton-Rothschild's stable is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by an earthy nose dominated by black currants and toasty, smoky oak. Medium to full-bodied with relatively high tannin, decent acidity, and a fine finish, it should be at its best between 2014-2030."
