Much like its prestigious neighbors, Château Clerc Milon and Château Mouton Rothschild, Château d’Armailhac is also owned by the Rothschild family. Since the 17th century, the estate has belonged to the original owners, the d’Armailhacq family until 1993 when Baron Philippe de Rothschild acquired the property. By 1989, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild took charge of the property, and worked to restore the château’s genuine identity until her passing in 2014. A classified Fifth Growth in the illustrious 1855 Classification, the 70-hectare estate in northern Pauillac is planted with 50-hectares of traditional Médoc grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot. In line with their classical Médoc style, under careful observation, their wines are aged in oak barrels, making the wine powerful, and deliciously tannic.
