Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot
Tasting Notes: The highly expressive nose is remarkable for its intense and radiant red fruit aromas mingled with notes of roasted coffee and marzipan. Ample and full-bodied. The long finish is sustained by hints of chocolate.
About the winery: Chateau d'Armailhac, classified as a fifth growth in 1855, is a close neighbour of Chateau Mouton Rothschild. Its 123 acres of vines, surrounding the beautiful grounds of the main house, are planted with the typical varieties of the region. The estate, in the d'Armailhac family since the 18th century and named Chateau Mouton d'Armailhac after them, was acquitted by Baron Philippe in 1933. The wine, aged in oak casks, combines finesse and elegance with powerful, well-structured tannins.
