Part of the Mouton Rothschild family collection, Chateau d'Armailahc was named after the first owners of the estate, Dominique d'Armailhacq. The vineyard covers 70 hectares in the northern part of Pauillac, an extension of the Carruades de Mouton plateau. The soil of Pauillac is made up of deep gravelly soil and clay-limestone base.

Wine Advocate Another sensational effort from Philippe Dhaluin, the administrator of Mouton Rothschild, this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot shows complex floral notes intermixed with forest floor, camphor, black currants and mulberries that all jump from the glass of this aromatic style of d'Armailhac. This wine possesses very good acidity, a surprisingly higher percentage of Merlot than usual, but the quality is impressive, and the good news is that there are 20,000 cases of this full-bodied beauty, which should age nicely for 15-20+ years. Score: 93. -Robert Parker, February 2013. 13% Abv.
