Chateau d’Armailhac, located in the Pauillac appellation of Bordeaux, is one of eighteen Cinquiemes Crus (Fifth Growths) in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. The estate was named after its first owner, Dominique d’Armailhacq; eventually, the Armailhacq family sold the estate to Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1934, and the Rothschild family continues to run the vineyard today. Chateau d’Armailhac’s vineyard covers 70 hectares in the northern part of Pauillac and is adjacent to parcels belonging to Chateau Pontet-Canet. The vines are some of the oldest in the Bordeaux region, with 20% of the vines dating back 125 years of age. The wine itself is aged for an average of 16 months in oak barrels, and over 18,000 cases are produced annually.
