Winemaker Notes

The wine has an intense, garnet red colour with a coppery tint and a highly refined nose, mingling attractive floral notes of lily and lilac with more complex aromas of vanilla, liquorice, tobacco and chocolate, then some more mineral notes that emerge with airing.

Full on the palate, its tannins are enfolded in a stylish structure that melts into a rich array of flavours in which kirsch and blackcurrant liqueur combine with coffee, caramel and a touch of menthol.

The finish is fresh and well-balanced, pleasantly long, combining power and refinement. A classic Pauillac.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling
There's licorice here along with mint, some lead pencil and flowers. It's full and round displaying wonderful vanilla and plum flavors. Very silky and refined yet dense and caressing. A beauty, though it does turn a little dry, always revealing its wood.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Very pretty aromas of vanilla, tobacco, berry and chocolate. Medium- to full-bodied, with soft tannins and a berry, chocolate finish. Not very dense. This pales compared with the other top Pauillacs. I never thought this was a perfect wine, but it gives great pleasure.—'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. 20,000 cases made.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, France
Chateau Mouton Rothschild The Mouton Style Winery Image
Chateau Mouton Rothschild, a Premier Cru Classé from the Bordeaux region and one of the world's greatest wines, is owned by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild. The estate includes 205 acres of vines at Pauillac planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (77%), Merlot (11%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (2%).

In 1853, Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild bought Chateau Brane-Mouton. In 1922, his great-grandson Baron Philippe de Rothschild (1902-1988) decided to take the future of the estate into his own hands. His 65 years at Mouton bear witness to the strength of his personality, his spirit of enterprise and his sense of innovation.

In 1922, he was the first to introduce chateau bottling. In 1926, he built the famous Grand Chai, the majestic 100-meter first year cellar, which has become a major attraction for visitors to Mouton. 1945 marked the start of a fascinating collection of works of art, created every year for the Mouton label by famous painters. In 1973, after a twenty-year battle, Baron Philippe obtained a revision of the 1855 classification and Mouton was officially recognized as a First Growth.

In 1988, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild succeeded her father Baron Philippe. She has become the guarantor of the quality of an illustrious wine whose motto proudly proclaims, "First I am, second I was, I Mouton do not change."
