Ch√¢teau d’Armailhac, classified as a Fifth Growth in 1855, is a close neighbor of Ch√¢teau Mouton Rothschild. Its 123 acres of vines, surrounding the beautiful grounds of the main house, are planted with the typical varieties of the region: 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.
The estate, in the d’Armailhacq family since the 18th century and named Ch√¢teau Mouton d’Armailhacq after them, was acquired by Baron Philippe in 1933. Between 1956 and 1989, it was called successively Ch√¢teau Mouton Baron Phillipe then Ch√¢teau Mouton Baronne Phillipe. In 1989, Baroness Phillipine de Rothschild restored part of its original identity, renaming it Chateau d’Armailhac. The wine, aged in oak casks, combines finesse and elegance with powerful, well-structured tannins.
