Formerly known as Château Mouton Baron Philippe this excellent property is still owned by the Rothschild family and is one to follow.
A very impressive Armailhac this vintage. The proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon is 68%, one of the highest ever. The result is a very classic, structured wine. A smouldering bouquet, intense and powerful with oodles of sweet cassis fruit, the tannins are ripe and impressive and notes of pencil lead and cedar give a very aristocratic mouthfeel.
Château d’Armailhac is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Chateau d’Armailhac is also good with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
Aged in 40% new oak for 18 months.
