Decanter - Lovely florality, lifted fruit and silky tannins. This wine has got both broader and finer over the years and is now totally complete in the feminine d’Armailhac style. 92 Points
The color is garnet color with purple highlights. The nose, very expressive, is characterized by intense and bright red fruit aromas, mixed with roasted aromas and marzipan. Taking mouth, full and fleshy, reveals coated and silky tannic frame, giving an impression of fat and volume, highlighted by a generous and varied aromas where one finds notes of cherry, vanilla and licorice. The finish is long, slightly supported by chocolate notes.

5th Cru Classé of Pauillac, Château d'Armailhac is owned by the Rothschild family since 1933. That's why the talented technical team who officiates there is the same as that of Château Mouton Rothschild , a neighbor also Armailhac.
Raw is named - after a spell simplification - to the family of Armailhacq, who owned the 17th century. On superb grave mounds, the vineyard of 72 hectares is relatively old (46 years on average), a concentration of quality for wine. The small figure on the label of the bottle is a reproduction of a glass spun out of the 18th century representing Bacchus, located at Château Mouton Rothschild museum.
