Description

Characteristics and tasting tips for Château d’Armailhac 2023

Tasting

Colour
Dark and of an intense red hue, the colour is adorned with subtle purple reflections.

Nose
As it breathes, the nose reveals floral, fruity (black cherry) and confectionery fragrances.

Palate
Seductive in its finesse and precision, the palate combines fine tannins with delicious spicy, peppery and fruity aromas.

A great fresh and balanced Pauillac red wine

The estate

Grand Cru Classé in 1855, Château d’Armailhac takes its name from the d’Armailhacq family who became owners in 1660. Its history is marked by pioneers of modern viticulture such as Armand d’Armailhac.  It was in 1933 that Baron Philippe de Rothschild acquired the estate, later taken over by his daughter, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild. Today, her three children, Camille and Philippe Sereys de Rothschild and Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild ensure family continuity and perpetuate with passion and the same attachment to the terroir, this search for excellence and innovation in the vineyard as in the winery.

The vineyard

The 80 hectares of the Château d’Armailhac vineyard, with an average age of 40 years, extends over three ridges. This distribution allows it to benefit from all the typicities of the Pauillac appellation. Its terroir, composed mainly of deep gravels, clayey to clay-limestone soils and gravelly sands, is planted with classic Médoc grape varieties. Coming from very old mass selections, its Cabernet Francs, remarkable and in significant proportion, are a signature of this cru.

The vintage

Mild and relatively humid, the spring promotes rapid vegetative growth. The bud break in early April is not impacted by the frost episode at this time. Flowering is recorded at the end of May with a 5-day lead. Despite June being recognised as the hottest since 1962, the vineyard maintains its lead. The end of summer is punctuated by two heatwave episodes at the end of August and the beginning of September before the start of the harvest, partly carried out under unstable conditions.
