The Château d'Armailhac is among the most famous Domaines of the Pauillac appellation. Having belonged to the d'Armailhacq family since the eighteenth century, it will obtain the title of Fifth Grand Cru Classé during the famous classification of the wines of the Medoc for the Paris World Fair.
It was acquired by Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1933, who then named it "Mouton-Baron-Philippe". Then in 1975, when his daughter Baroness Philippine took over its management, it became "Mouton-Baronne-Philippe". Finally, she decided to restore its identity by permanently naming it Château d'Armailhac in 1991.
Located on gravel and clay-limestone soils, its vineyard covers 76 hectares of vines, of which 55% are Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. The wines are aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 50% of which are new.
The Château d'Armailhac is a wine that combines power and refinement, complexity and elegance, with a beautiful aromatic expression typical of Pauillac.
Description Château d'Armailhac 2015.
A great Pauillac from a very beautiful and mythical year which reveals itself to be splendid as time goes by.
The robe is imperial purple.
On the nose as well as on the palate: exotic fruits and spices, small red fruits such as black cherry, blackberry or blackcurrant with a fine touch of liquorice. Very nice harmony between the tannins and the fragrances of red berries.
A sure value to be kept in the cellar, bottle lying down protected from light and noise with a hygrometry of about 70%.
To decant many hours before serving to let it express its olfactory and gustatory richness.
