Chateau d'Armailhac

ch-d-armailhac.jpgThe most schizophrenic property in the entire Medoc - at least in terms of nomenclature - this is now a star property of the Rothschild family (of the Mouton schism) having settled both in terms of name as well as style.  Most recently known as Mouton-Baronne-Philippe (until 1989), it was originally known as Mouton d’Armailhacq.


Nearly 60 hectares of vines, mostly nestled in between the gentle hills to the north of Pauillac hosting Mouton Rothschild and Pontet-Canet respectively, overlooking the Gironde.  Planted to a mix of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot of an average vine age of 50 years.  


Although lacking autonomous winemaking facilities, d’Armailhac’s cellars are adjacent those of Mouton Rothschild, and the same winemaking team is responsible for d’Armailhac, as well as Mouton Rothschild and Clerc-Milon.  The wine ferments for up to three weeks in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats and is aged in oak (approximately 35% of which is new) for around 16 months.  Unusually, there is no second wine produced.
