The Estate: The estate has a rich history dating back to the 18th century. Originally known as Château Mouton d’Armailhacq, it was acquired by the Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1933, who later shortened. The name to Château d’Armailhac. It is still part of the prestigious Rothschild portfolio. The estate benefits from the expertise and resources of one of Bordeaux’s most respected wine families. It is classified as a Fifth Growth (Cinquième Cru) in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. This classification recognises the estate’s quality and historical significance. Situated in Pauillac, the estate’s vineyards are planted on the well-drained gravel soils typical of the appellation. This terroir is ideal for the grapes grown in the region. They employ meticulous vineyard management and traditional Bordeaux winemaking techniques. The grapes are hand-harvested, and the wine is aged in oak barrels, a portion of which are new, to enhance complexity and structure.

The estate continues to innovate and improve its practices, focusing on sustainability and quality. The wine is a classic style of Pauillac, deep, complex, with ability to age gracefully. 2001 was a very good vintage. It is not a year to imitate the opulence of the 2000, it’s more old-fashioned in style, great expression of terroir.

 

Suggested food and wine pairing: Perfect with grilled ribeye, venison, roast veal, pheasant (with chestnuts), chicken tajine, Christmas turkey, roast lamb, cheese (semi-hard).
