Château d'Armailhac 2018

Pauillac AOC 5eme Grand Cru Classe

Fantastic, complex, focused: just some of the words that critics have used to describe the impressive, 95-point 2018 vintage of Château d'Armailhac. Delivering everything you'd expect from a top Pauillac, this is one of the region's shrewdest buys.

Château d'Armailhac, a 5ème Cru Classé Pauillac property, is located immediately next to its owners, Château Mouton Rothschild. The same team guides its winemaking. It's also home to some of the oldest vines in the Médoc, with plantings dating back to 1890. Their 2018 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, matured in a combination of new oak barrels (30%) and 2nd fill barrels from Mouton Rothschild. It produces a fine Pauillac with vibrant berry and cherry flavour with notes of liquorice, pepper and spice. Tightly wound, with lovely balance and poise, it still needs time. The wines of this estate have improved significantly over the last decade, and now represents one of Pauillac's best value buys.

"Concentrated and focused with a very long, spice and mineral finish. Fantastic" James Suckling
