Chateau d'Armailhac, or Chateau Mouton d'Armailhac, as it has been called (the vineyards were actually once part of Mouton), is fifth growth in the Bordeaux classification, and belongs to the stable of Chateau Mouton Rothschild wines. The 50.9 hectare vineyard is planted to 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.

This wine tends to be reasonably priced for its rank and quality (everything is relative when discussing prices of Bordeaux!). The 2010 vintage was described by Wine Spectator as "Dense, juicy and inviting, with bouncy briar, blackberry, steeped black currant and melted black licorice notes framed by roasted apple wood and graphite notes. The finish courses along with good definition. Energetic and tempting, but the gripping, iron-laden finish will benefit from cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2030." 93 points.
