Winemakers Note

Château d'Armailhac, a new era Grand Cru Classé close to Château Mouton Rothschild, Château d'Armailhac has 77 hectares of vines spread over three sections, revealing the typical diversity of the Pauillac appellation. A new era opened in 2021 for Château d'Armailhac. This year was marked by the arrival of Lucie Lauilhé, the new director of the estate, but also by the inauguration of the new vat room and the new cellar. These changes will bring greater precision to each stage of the production of this great wine, giving it a whole new dimension. The 2018 vintage Weather Conditions : The weather conditions were characterized by heavy winter rainfall and hailstorms, followed by a milder spring. April brought warmth, aiding vegetation growth and advancing the vine cycle by 5 days. July's humidity and summer heat posed challenges for vine health, but vigilant care preserved vineyard qualities. However, a hot, dry summer reversed early conditions, resulting in small but exceptionally sugar-rich and tannic grapes. Despite lower yields due to drought, 2018 is already regarded as a great success. Tasting Notes : The wine has a deep colour with a garnet hue. The rich, packed nose opens on aromas of blackberry and marzipan. With airing, the initial fruit is complemented by an array of spice and dark chocolate notes.  The powerful and well-structured attack reveals peppery and slightly minty flavours, leading into a mid-palate underpinned by elegant and dense tannins on roasted coffeebean and liquorice notes. A long and smooth finish rounds off a remarkably harmonious wine.
