The 2017 Mouton Rothschild has one of the highest percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon ever at 90%, with 9% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. Very deep purple-black in color, the nose is already singing of crushed black currants, warm blackberries and chocolate-covered cherries with hints of violets, star anise, cinnamon stick and cloves plus wafts of pencil lead and unsmoked cigars. Medium-bodied, wonderfully delicate yet intense in the mouth (gaining some richness in the mid-palate on my second taste two and a half weeks later), it has super fine-grained, smooth tannins and incredible freshness, finishing very long with tons of tightly wound layers. Wow. This vintage is going to be very long-lived in the cellar!
“First I am, second I was, Mouton never changes”
Undoubtedly the most flamboyant of the Médoc's four fantastics, both in style and packaging. Mouton Rotschild has always been resolutely more modern than its neighbours, always seeking concentration and richness. With its artistic side, this marvelous Pauillac draws the eye to the wines of Bordeaux, it has long been a standard bearer for the region's châteaux. Couldn't hope for better...
Château Mouton Rothschild Premier Grand Cru Classé is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon. It is generally powerful with an almost opaque and purple color. Crème de cassis, graphite, oak and spices make up a bouquet with a very broad aromatic spectrum that will develop, over the years and even decades, into more evolved notes of tobacco, smoke and cedar.
