The estate The origins of Château d’Armailhac date back to 1750. The vineyard was then called "Mouton d'Armailhacq". A Fifth Classified Growth of 1855, Château d’Armailhac shines bright in the appellation of Pauillac. It was in 1931 that the young Baron Philippe de Rothschild became a minority shareholder in the Mouton d'Armailhacq estate. Eventually, the château came under the full ownership of Baron Philippe de Rothschild. It was in 1989 that Baroness Philippine de Rothschild decided to restore the estate to its original name: Château d’Armailhac.
The vineyard The Château d’Armailhac vineyard covers 70 hectares of vines north of the Pauillac appellation. The vines are planted in very stony gravel soils upon clay-limestone subsoils.
The vintage Following a mild winter and a cool spring, then heavy rainfall in June, summer brought with it rather high temperatures. Bits of precipitation prevented significant water stress on the vines. At Château d’Armailhac, the harvest began on September 19 and ended on October 9. The harvest was quite generous, both in terms of quantity and quality. The fruit displayed intense coloru, a high degree of alcohol and very beautiful tannins.
The blend Cabernet sauvignon (62%), merlot (27%), cabernet franc (9%), petit verdot (2%).
The tasting Tasted en primeur, the Château d'Armailhac 2019 displays a dark red coloru with garnet reflections. Intense and very aromatic, the bouquet delivers notes of black fruit, combined with peppery and spicy notes. On the palate, the wine develops gradually, following a straightforward and serious attack. This fine red wine from Pauillac thrills the palate with its creamy and satiny texture, along with its perfectly integrated tannins. The finish lingers long, revealing elegant floral and liquorice notes.
