was the property of Jean-Philippe Caille, along with the famous Château l'Arrosée, from 2002 to 2013. It is located on the southern flank of the Saint-Emilion hill, at the bottom of the slope.
Growing in sandy loam soil with a clay subsoil, its 3.80 hectare Grand Cru classified vineyards produce Château L'Armont wines with structure, elegance and a supple character. The plantings at Château L’Armont are very typical of the appellation (75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc) and express the quintessence of the terroir: the fleshy fruitiness of the Merlot combines perfectly with the smoky character of the more structured Cabernet.
The 40-year-old vines are sustainably-grown and yields are restricted to between 35- 40 hl/ha. The aim is to obtain optimum maturity and the plots are very carefully selected at the time of vinification Château L'Armont expresses the exceptional character of the Bordeaux terroir.
Château l’Armont was acquired by Domaine Clarence Dillon in 2013 and its production is now used for Dragon de Quintus, the second wine of Château Quintus.
