Ch‚teau d'Armailhac

First Growth Partner Mouton Rothschild

Since 1933 when Baron Philippe finally took full ownership, the history of Chateau díArmailhac has been inseparable from Chateau Mouton Rothschild. Its vast outbuildings house the technical and agricultural equipment to needed to farm the two estates vineyards. The House a fine but incomplete white stone building is now used for residential purpose.

Armailhac has benefited from financial investment of its parent and the technological know-how of First Growth partner Mouton Rothschild. Situated to the northeast of Pauillac on three plots: Plateau des Levantines et de LíObelisque (near the Carruades croupe), Plateau de Petit Pibran and Le Croupe de Behere. There are currently 50 hectares of vines planted with 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Since 2005 the wines have been of excellent quality and the bar is continually being raised. For those who want First Growth wine-making at a fraction of the cost, youíd do well to look at Clerc Milon and díArmailhac.
