Château d’Armailhac

An iconic Pauillac estate

A Grand Cru Classé in 1855, Château d’Armailhac adjoins Château Mouton Rothschild to the north and enjoys southern exposure. The 76-hectare vineyard, with an average age of 40 years, is planted on three different crests. This distribution enables it to benefit from all the typical characteristics of the Pauillac appellation.

Its terroir, composed mainly of deep gravel, clay to clay-limestone soils and gravelly sand, is planted with the classic Médoc grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon (55%), Merlot (35%), Cabernet Franc (8%) and Petit Verdot (2%). The Cabernet Franc, with an average age of 60 years, is planted mainly on the Levantines crest, an ideal terroir for its deep roots. The significant proportion of Cabernet Franc, the result of very old mass selections, is a signature of this growth.

Château d’Armailhac takes its name from the d’Armailhacq family, who became owners in 1660. Its history has been marked by pioneers of modern viticulture, such as Armand d’Armailhac. 

It was in 1933 that Baron Philippe de Rothschild (1902-1988) acquired the estate, which was subsequently taken over by his daughter, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild (1933-2014). Today, her three children, Camille and Philippe Sereys de Rothschild and Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild, continue the family tradition and, with the same passion and devotion to the terroir, continue the quest for excellence and innovation in both the vineyard and the cellar.
