The history of the château dates back to the 17th century and it’s more recent history has become intertwined with that of Mouton Rothchild – In fact all the agricultural equipment used for both plots of land is stored at Château d’Armailhac. The vineyard is planted with traditional Médoc grape varieties (53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot).
This is very tannic yet polished and firm with currants, bark, and stones. Full-bodied and muscular and linear. Love the length. Beautiful. Try in 2020.
