It has been several years since I last tasted and rather lambasted the 1999 Chateau d’Armailhac. To be honest, I am still not convinced that this is a great vintage for the Chateau, certainly when in this instance, compared to the 2009. It has a fresh, rather herbaceous bouquet that does not quite deliver the requisite fruit to suit this style. The palate is medium-bodied with sharp and rather angular tannin. It is open and ready to drink, but does not really rank next to the best vintages of this estate. Tasted August 2016.
Drink Date: 2015 – 2019
