Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, April 2015, Score: 88-90

Bright purple in colour, this has an excellent balance between sweetness of fruit and positive fresh acidity. Extremely giving and very pure Cabernet flavours. It is a fine example of the success of the Pauillac appellation in 2014.

Château d'Armailhac

For years this château had an identity crisis having almost as many names as France has had epublics. It was created in the 18th century by Dominique d'Armailhac from a section of landituated between Mouton Rothschild and Pontet Canet and hence named Mouton d'Armailhac. In 1933, itwas acquired by the Mouton branch of the Rothschild family and in 1956, its name was changed toMouton-Baron-Philippe after Philippe de Rothschild. Almost 20 years later, the Baron Philippe'swife died, and he changed the name to Mouton-Baronne-Philippe in her memory. If that was not enough, in 1989 the name reverted back to d'Armailhac in order to curb confusion with their brand,Mouton Cadet.

Region

Pauillac, Red Bordeaux

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
