Domaine de la Romanée-Conti
- Burgundy ·
Classified a 5th Cru Classé in 1855, it has undergone many name changes, until its original identity has been restored in 1989.
Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A. has two distinct lines of business: châteaux wines and branded wines, united under a single management in the same pursuit of excellence. The company produces and sells a range of high-quality branded wines which it sources from various partner growers then blends. Baron Philippe de Rothschild S.A. also manages three classified growths in Pauillac, situated in the Médoc, north of Bordeaux: Château Clerc Milon, Château d’Armailhac and the illustrious Château Mouton Rothschild. All three properties are owned by the children of Baroness Philippine de Rothschild (1933 2014), Camille Sereys de Rothschild, Philippe Sereys de Rothschild and Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild.
Now inseparable from Mouton Rothschild, Château Mouton d’Armailhac has played a vital role: as a neighbour, its vast outbuilding were used to store the necessary technical and agricultural equipment for both Château; from 1947 to 1966, it served as the estate manager’s residence.
Baron Philippe de Rothschild bought the estate in 1933 and it remains in the hands of the Rothschild family.
Château d’Armailhac is located immediately next to Château Mouton-Rothschild and counts 69 hectares of vineyards.
The grape mix in the vineyard is 53% of Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% of Merlot, 11% of Cabernet Franc and as much as 2% of Petit Verdot.
