En Primeur Château d’Armailhac, 5ème Grand Cru Classé Pauillac , will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
Château d’Armailhac is located in Pauillac and is a 5eme Cru Classé estate dating back to the 17th century, when it was owned by the Armailhacq brothers. Vineyards here border Mouton Rothschild and originally made up part of a single vineyard area with its famous neighbour. Baron Philippe de Rothschild purchased the estate in 1933 and was renamed as d’Armailhac in 1988.
As well as having vineyards situated on excellent Pauillac terroir, d’Armailhac benefit from having very old vines, with an average of around 50 years old with some vines dating back to the late 19th century! Soils are largely the classic Pauillac deep gravel, with around one-fifth of the 70 hectares of vines being on clay-limestone. Just over half of the vines are Cabernet Sauvignon, with the remainder split mainly between Merlot and Cabernet Franc (there is a small proportion of Petit Verdot here as well).
