Complex and balanced, a fine red wine from Pauillac

The estate

The origins of Château d’Armailhac hark 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

Château d'Armailhac comprises a 73-hectare vineyard in the north of the Pauillac appellation. The vines are 46 years old on average and rest on a light and deep gravel soil.

The vintage

The year 2015 was particularly dry from February to July, i.e. from budburst to veraison, which had an impact on the size of the grapes. The significant rainfall recorded in August and September was beneficial for the vineyard, which had already been affected by water stress, and ensured an optimal ripening of the grapes. In order to harvest at perfect maturity, the harvest was exceptionally long, from 16 September to 5 October 2015.

The blend

Château d'Armailhac 2015 comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (69%), Merlot (29%), Cabernet Franc (2%) and Petit Verdot (2%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2015 D'Armailhac displays a medium to deep garnet-purple color and exuberant notions of exotic spices and potpourri over a core of black and red cherry preserves plus wild blueberries and a waft of tar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals mouth-filling, juicy black berry flavors with approachable, grainy tannins and wonderful freshness on the finish.
