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

A wine which is almost opaque in colour, with a perfumed, forward bouquet which reveals a brooding and intense fruit aroma. The palate is fresh and balanced, quite meaty but in the mid-core there is mocha, cherry and rich black fruits. Structured throughout and with some weight. The length of finish is also very impressive.

Food Matches

Enjoy with a classic beef wellington.

Vinification

Aged in 35% new oak for 12 months.
