Marks and reviews
The origins of Château d'Armailhac date back to 1750. At the time, the vineyard was known as "Mouton d'Armailhacq." Château d'Armailhac became fifth Cru Classé in 1855, and its influence spread throughout the Pauillac region. In 1931, the young Baron Philippe de Rothschild became a minority shareholder in the Mouton d'Armailhacq estate. The château subsequently became the entire property of Baron Philippe de Rothschild. In 1989, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild decided to return the château to its original name: Château d'Armailhac.
Château d'Armailhac is a Pauillac wine made from 73 hectares of vines located to the north of the appellation, on a terroir of light, deep gravel.
2022 began with mild, dry conditions followed by plenty of sunshine throughout the growing season. Rainfall in April and June replenished water reserves. The vines were ideally able to withstand the numerous heat waves, ensuring that the grapes ripened gradually and to a high standard. Flowering was early and uniform. The harvest, which took place in September in a vineyard in perfect health, revealed grapes of great concentration and rare balance, producing rich, elegant wines.
