Pauillac
Grand Cru Classé en 1855
Baronne Philippine de Rothschild G.F.A.
A Grand Cru Classé of the 1855 classification , Château d’Armailhac, a neighbour of Château Mouton Rothschild in Pauillac, has 70 hectares of vines planted with classic Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Matured in oak barrels, the wine combines finesse and elegance with the power and tannins of Pauillac’s great wines. Widely recognized for the quality of its wine, the estate has evolved over the years and incorporated numerous winemaking innovations.

Baron Philippe acquired Château d’Armailhac in 1933. Also wellknown for its grounds, front courtyard and house, the Château had belonged to the d’Armailhacq family since the 18th century. Known as
Château Mouton d’Armailhacq between 1956 and 1989, it was then successively named Château Mouton Baron Philippe and
Château Mouton Baronne Philippe.

In 1989, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild revived the historic link with the original owner by renaming the estate Château d’Armailhac. Continuity is ensured today by Baroness Philippine’s children,
Camille Sereys de Rothschild, Philippe Sereys de Rothschild and
Julien de Beaumarchais de Rothschild.
