Château d’Armailhac has been under the ownership of Baron Philippe de Rothschild since the 1930s. Classified as a fifth growth, the property only produce one wine that is seen as great value and is generating more and more interest amongst wine lovers.
Inviting with a satisfying dense ripe fruit bordering on opulence. Cassis notes from the Cabernet are present and there are ripe red fruits as well. The plushness is countered by a spiciness and a graphite note on the finish that ensures this conveys a sense of typicity of Pauillac despite the concentration of fruit. Very promising and harmonious. – 16.5/ 20 Points, Davy’s Wine Merchants

Deeply colored, the 2018 Château D'Armailhac is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot brought up in 40% new barrels. Cassis, hints of blue fruits, graphite, charcoal, and spicy oak notes all emerge from this deeply colored effort. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, it offers ripe, present tannins, terrific freshness, and a great finish.- 93 pts Jeb Dunnuck
