    This Pauillac estate, part of the Mouton quality hierarchy, is producing better and better wines. The grapy, unformed 1995 is ripe and sweet, with an uncomplicated fruitiness. This enjoyable, pleasant wine should drink well when released and last for a decade. It is fat, fruity, and pleasing. Drink: 1996-2006.All of the wines in this segment were tasted between March 19 and March 28 in Bordeaux. Most of the important wines from both the 1994 and 1995 vintages were tasted three separate times during my ten-day stay in Bordeaux.

  • Robert Parker, January 1998, Score: 88

    One of the better D'Armailhacs of recent vintages, this dark purple-colored wine offers pure cassis aromas, medium body, fine ripeness, surprising power and intensity, and sweet tannin nicely balanced by glycerin and extract. It requires 4-5 years to develop more aromatic complexity, but this is a 15-year wine. Last tasted 1/97. Drink: 1997-2012.

    The 1995 is possibly the finest d'Armailhac I have yet tasted. The blend was 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, and 32% Merlot. This deep ruby/purple-colored wine possesses low acidity, plenty of sweet tannin, and, in both its aromatics and flavors, gobs of ripe cassis fruit are nicely framed by the judicious use of toasty oak. Flavorful, round, generous, and hedonistic, this is a crowd-pleaser! Anticipated maturity: Now-2012.

Château d'Armailhac

For years this château had an identity crisis having almost as many names as France has had republics. It was created in the 18th century by Dominique d'Armailhac from a section of land situated between Mouton Rothschild and Pontet Canet and hence named Mouton d'Armailhac. In 1933, it was acquired by the Mouton branch of the Rothschild family and in 1956, its name was changed to Mouton-Baron-Philippe after Philippe de Roths...Read more

In 1933, it was acquired by the Mouton branch of the Rothschild family and in 1956, its name was changed to Mouton-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. Despite its chameleon-like name changes, for the past 20 years its quality has been consistent...Read less

Region

Pauillac

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.
