Chateau D'Armailhac Baron Philippe de Rothschild Pauillac 2016
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. This is an opportunity to taste wines grown among the Mouton Rothschild's vines. Most of the vines here are old, some might be over 100 years old. Including some of the oldest Cabernet Franc vines in Bordeaux.

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 D'Armailhac opens with gregarious crème de cassis, blackberry pie and mulberries scents with hints of chocolate box, roses and charcoal with a waft of dried sage. Medium-bodied, the palate has a rock-solid frame of firm, grainy tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long and earthy." Wine Advocate
