Château d'Armailhac 2005, 5ème Cru Classé, Pauillac

ARMA015
Although the least known of Baroness Philippine's trio of estates it is arguably the best value. "D’Armailhac’s 2005 offers notes of cedar wood, forest floor, black and red currants, spice box and earth. It is medium-bodied, relatively soft for a 2005, and best drunk over the next 12-15 years." eRobertParker.com.June, 2015

Château d'Armailhac

Formerly known as Château Mouton Baron Philippe this excellent property is still owned by the Rothschild family and is one to follow.

Tasting Notes

"This powerful, tannic, structured effort from Mouton-Rothschild’s stable .... Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by an earthy nose dominated by black currants and toasty, smoky oak. Medium to full-bodied with relatively high tannin, decent acidity, and a fine finish" 90+ points. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Food Matches

Wonderful with beef or venison
