Château d'Armailhac

  • Bordeaux


5th Grand Cru Classé in 1855, Château d'Armailhac, neighbor of Château Mouton Rothschild, has 69 hectares of vines in Pauillac planted with  typical  grape varieties of the  appellation : Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet franc and Petit Verdot. Aged in oak barrels, it combines its finesse and elegance with the power and tannins of the great Pauillac. Recognized for its quality, the Château has evolved over the centuries and innovations such as those recounted by Armand d'Armailhac in a treatise published in 1867: On the Culture of Vines, Vinification and Wines in the Médoc. In 1933, Baron Philippe de Rothschild bought this property, also known for its park, one of the most beautiful in the Médoc, its entrance courtyard, and its Château. The Château had belonged since the 18th century to the Armailhacq family, of which it had worn then the name. Château Mouton d'Armailhacq, between 1956 and 1989, was called successively Château Mouton Baron Philippe, then Château Mouton Baronne Philippe. Since 1989, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild has partly restored it to its original identity under the name of Château d'Armailhac.
