In 1680, a local register notes the existence of two brothers, Dominique et Guilhem Armailhacq, who own parcels of land in Pauillac.
Another register mentions in 1750 a certain Dominique Armailhac, who has “planted with vines” the family estate, taking advantage of the “planting frenzy” then sweeping through the Médoc. The vines covered 15 to 16 hectares (37-39 acres).
In the late 18th century, the vineyard, generally called Mouton d’Armailhacq, spans some 52 hectares (128 acres) between Brane-Mouton in the north and Pibran in the south.
The Château d'Armailhac vineyard is made up of three groups of parcels, the Plateau des Levantines et de l'Obélisque, the Plateau de Pibran and the Croupe de Béhéré.
This is an explosive raspberry flavor sensation! It’s their best to date
Blackcurrant aplenty and a fresh leather scent too. Spot on for Pauillac. Finely feathered but plentiful tannins. Savory finishes, but the fruit has a well-judged just-ripe quality.
