Tasting Notes

GG96

Expressive, spicy nose with a core of black fruit, blackcurrant and rasperry, accompanied by a cedar note. The fleshy, full bodied palate is well balanced and structured by solid tannins. A successful vintage and an outstanding wine.

WE95

The wood element is important here, but it is based on a firm Cabernet Sauvignon structure, dry but rich tannins. The wine is a great success for the vintage, giving sweetness, ripe fruit that only shows light extraction, and dark plum and berry flavors. The feeling is of polished fruit and wood, rounded but always dense.

The Winery

Château Mouton Rothschild

"Premier Je suis, Second Je fus, Mouton ne change. (First I am, second I was, but Mouton does not change)"
- Baron Phillipe de Rothschild

This was the Baron’s response to Mouton being denied First Growth Bordeaux status initially, and then promoted to the desired classification in 1973. Baron Phillipe de Rothschild is the father of many great French wine estates, including Mouton, Lafite la Muete, Rieussec and L’Evangile, to name a few. Mouton hails from Pauillac in the Medoc region, and is known to be among the elitist wines of the world along with Lafite, d’Yquem and DRC.

A bottle of Mouton is a piece of history, because even the most recent vintages boast a heritage that battled drought, disease, frost, and the Second World War. Rothschild survived, though he lost his wife at the time in 1945 (Elizabeth de Rothschild), who did not survive a concentration camp. Anyone can appreciate the history here, and it’s impossible to ignore the artwork that adorns it. Each vintage, an artist is commissioned to create a new, special label for the wines of Mouton. Some of the names most recognizable include Warhol, Picasso, Chagall, Kandinsky, Dali and even Prince Charles of Wales. To praise the wines would be redundant- stylistically flashy, vibrant, intense mineral and tobacco flavors and opulent. Mouton IS luxury.
