Baron Philippe De Rothschild:
Since 1933, Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, located at Pauillac in the Médoc, has been motivated by a constant ambition: to make the world's finest wines, each in its own category, whether the châteaux wines for which it is responsible – the renowned Château Mouton Rothschild, a First Growth, and its distinguished lieutenants, Château Clerc Milon and Château d'Armailhac – or branded wines, lik...

Since 1933, Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, located at Pauillac in the Médoc, has been motivated by a constant ambition: to make the world's finest wines, each in its own category, whether the châteaux wines for which it is responsible – the renowned Château Mouton Rothschild, a First Growth, and its distinguished lieutenants, Château Clerc Milon and Château d'Armailhac – or branded wines, like the famous Mouton Cadet. Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA has also exported its know-how beyond Bordeaux: to the Pays d'Oc, with a range of varietal wines and, more recently, Domaine de Baron'arques; to California, with Opus One; and to Chile, with Almaviva. One of the key factors behind the company's undisputed success is the art of blending, which it practises with exceptional skill. Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, the majority shareholder of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, works closely with the executive directors to maintain, modernise and develop the family business.

Slightly slow to open on th nose, but some pretty spice and cedar incense hiding behind the red berry fruit - almost like a tropical brush fire. Nice dark, seductive deep red robe. Pleasant, soft tannins on entry with more red fruit (red currant) mid-palate. Medium finish. This is somewhat lighter stuff than expected, and very approachable now. A nice, smooth, good value Paulliac. Cellar 4 years - tops.

WA 90-93pts. - IWC 90-92pts. - According to Robert ParkerAbundant tannin in addition to a deep ruby/purple hue, superb purity, and a lovely texture are found in this delicious Pauillac. One of the finest d'Armailhacs I have ever tasted, it is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot that achieved an amazing 13.3% natural alcohol. Aromas of black currants, creamy oak, and earth emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort. It should be drinkable in 4-5 years, and will last for two decades or more. According to Steven Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: Deep red-ruby. Currant, blueberry, leather, graphite and nutty oak on the nose. Silky-sweet and large-scaled for this wine, with perfectly integrated acidity and a deep minerality leavening the wine's volume. This boasts terrific volume and finishes with sweet tannins and excellent racy length. Getting better and better in barrel.

Lovely licorice and currant aromas follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a soft, fruity finish. Nicely done for the vintage. —J.S. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Armailhac, D 6000ml

($46-$53) Bright red-ruby. Raspberry, mocha and coffee aromas perked up by pepper, tobacco leaf and fresh herbs. Silky on entry, then suave and refined in the middle palate, with perfumed flavors of redcurrant, leather and peppery herbs. Finishes sub... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Armailhac, D 750ml
