En Primeur Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2016 is available ON ALLOCATION. Please e-mail email@example.com to enquire re availability
Founded by Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild in 1853, who purchased the estate previously known as Château Brane-Mouton. The quality of the wine produced a decade before fell, which cost Mouton Rothschild to be classified as a first growth in 1855. This was restored in 1973 under Baron Phillipe de Rothschild.
“This is a phenomenal, muscular red that shows incredible power and depth. Full-bodied and with great concentration of tannins but this remains agile and polished. The form to this is stupendous. Such precision and clarity. The new 1986 but better.” – 100pts, James Suckling April 2017
“… very intense bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, cold limestone and crushed violet aromas that if anything, appear to gain vigor with aeration in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, juicy tannin. There is a lot of fruit packed into this Mouton-Rothschild and therefore one can feel the weight in the mouth, yet the acidity keeps everything on tip-toes. The finish has superb precision and opulence, completing a Mouton-Rothschild that will rivet you to the spot. Tasted on two occasions, the second confirming that this is simply a magnificent wine. Whichever artist eventually designs the label is going to be drinking well. Drink 2026 – 2065.” – 98/100pts Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, April 2017
