Neal Martin, Vinous
The 2003 Château d'Armailhac is mature on the nose with singed leather, sous-bois, morels and perhaps a hint of a sweaty saddle. But I like it. The palate is medium-bodied with lighter tannins, meaty and savory, missing a bit of grip with a touch of Brettanomyces that becomes more dominant as it opens in the glass. Tasted at the château.

Château d'Armailhac

Owned by the Baron Philippe de Rothschild empire, d’Armailhac has benefited from financial investment of its parent and the technological know-how of First Growth partner Mouton Rothschild. Situated to the north east of Pauillac on three plots: Plateau des Levantines et de L’Obelisque (near the Carruades croupe), Plateau de Petit Pibran and Le Croupe de Behere. There are currently 50 hectares of vines planted with 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Since 2005 the wines have been of excellent quality and the bar is continually being raised. For those who want First Growth wine-making at a fraction of the cost, you’d do well to look at Clerc Milon and d’Armailhac.
