A classic vintage for this Pauillac legend. Bramble and a lot of fresh flowers on the nose. A bit less forward than expected but nice bit of crushed stone and polished wood. Crunchy acidity with lovely firm tannins. Loads of tannin to resolve but overall effect is balanced, fully ripe and fresh. Good lift and a nice monolithic finish.

About Château Mouton Rothschild

A name which requires little introduction to even those with a passing interest in fine wine, Château Mouton Rothschild is perhaps most famous for being the sole property to ascend the precarious ladder of the 1855 Classification and gain promotion to the promised land of First Growth status.


Located one of the finest gravel beds in Pauillac, the Grand Plateau de Mouton, Mouton Rothschild is often differentiated from its appellation peers, Lafite Rothschild and Latour, as the most flamboyant and sensual of the trinity. There is an undeniable sense of joie-de-vivre surrounding this hallowed estate, extending to its famous labels designed by the world’s finest artists from Picasso to Warhol.


Even the winery, a vast and imposing shimmering white temple to the vinous arts was designed sv by the beloved Baroness Philippine de Rothschild to feel like a theatre with sweeping corridors and ram’s headlight fixtures.


One of only two Châteaux to remain in the hands of the same family since 1855, this estate has long been a figurehead for how Bordeaux is perceived around the world and how it conducts its business. The first producer in the region to bottle the entirety of its production itself, it is thought that the initially denied First Growth status was due to politics of ownership and certainly not as a result of quality nor renown.


The Mouton vineyard is older than most in Bordeaux, with vines averaging 50 years, and some going back over 100! It is one of the world’s truly ‘great’ wine estates.
