2024 Favourites – Château Armens

Can you tell us about the winning cru ?

Situated on clay-limestone soils, Château Armens, like all our wines, has silky, fine tannins and excellent ageing potential.

The team at Château La Gaffelière elaborates and vinifies Château Armens, following the same philosophy that has made the family’s reputation since 1705.

 

Why did you decide to take part in the Coupe des Crus de Saint-Emilion ?

It’s a great way to showcase the finest Saint-Emilion estates at affordable prices.

 

Can you suggest a wine and food pairing for Château Armens ?

Château Armens can be enjoyed now and over the next 10 years.

The best pairing is with grilled red meat, but other possibilities, such as a stir-fried pork, are also suitable, as it’s a perfect accompaniment to a meal.

 

A final word ?

With Château Armens, we always share a friendly, convivial moment, whether it’s during a tasting or at the table !
