Chateau Mouton Rothschild

mouton rothschildMuch of Mouton’s success is due to the late Baron Philippe de Rothschild, who assumed control in 1922. He was a dynamic figure who revolutionised much of the running of the estate. The first to introduce château-bottling, as early as 1924, he instigated the practice after the Second World War of employing a different artist each year to design the label. His greatest achievement was to have Mouton upgraded to 1st Growth Status in 1973, the only change ever to be made to the 1855 Classification.

The vineyard, comprising 75 hectares of mainly gravel-based soils, is planted with 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Grapes are hand-picked, and the juice is fermented in barrel - not in vat. After fermentation the wine is aged in new oak for 22 months before bottling.

In style the wines have immense appeal, with exotic, powerful aromas of cassis, minerals, tobacco leaf and graphite, backed by an opulence on the palate and impressive length on the finish. Chateau Mouton Rothschild has often produced the “wine of the vintage”.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1997

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 90 Points - Robert Parker ***

Reviews:
"The superb 1997 Mouton-Rothschild is composed of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. This wine reveals a sensationally flamboyant nose of black fruits, coffee, licorice, and creme de cassis. Medium-bodied, with sweet tannin, with lots of layers of flavor. It possesses good spice, an opulent texture, and remarkable length. This is a very hedonistic, open-knit Mouton that has put on considerable weight. Only 55% of the crop made it into the 1997 Mouton. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2022." Parker, Wine Advocate

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1992

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

The 1992 Mouton has fashioned a flattering, soft, opulently-styled wine with medium body, a healthy dark ruby/purple color, and a big, fragrant nose of jammy cassis, smoky oak, and roasted herbs and nuts. The wine offers a sweet, expansive mid-palate and a lush, velvety-textured finish. It is an ostentatious, flashy Mouton. - Parker Wine Advocate, 1994

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1989

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 95 Points Wine Journal ***

Reviews"The Mouton ’89 is a lovely Pauillac that has reached its plateau of maturity. It has an engaging cedar-scented bouquet touches of cigar box, mint and a touch of Italian cooked meats. Very well defined, very “old school”. The palate is medium-bodied and very harmonious with grainy tannins. It continues the aromatic theme of cedar and tobacco, relatively foursquare compared to Pichon-Baron of Lynch Bages, with a slightly leafy finish that demonstrates great persistency. It is very “classic” in style, restrained, elegant and bearing similarities to Lafite.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1988

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 89 Points Wine Journal ***

Reviews.
"Slight aging on rim. A rich nose of minerals and blackcurrant. Medium-bodied with classic Mouton style. This has more fleshy fruit than other Firsts: quite rounded blackberry and tar. Very Cabernet dominated with a little more expression that Lafite 1988. A classic claret in every sense." Neil Martin

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1976

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe (Base of neck)

Mahogany core with deep brick rim. The nose is actually better than I anticipated with some dusty black fruits, cedar a touch of game, but it certainly lacks vigour and cohesion. The palate is a little tawdry, slightly hollow with an cooked character that jars against some obvious green berries that found themselves fermenting. Linear towards the dry finish, moderate length.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1975

Paulliac 1er Cru Grand Classe (Andy Warhol label)

*** 90 Points Robert Parker ***

Reviews "This wine has finally begun to reveal some potential. It has been closed and frightfully tannic for the last decade. The wine exhibits a good dark ruby/garnet color, a sweet nose of cedar, chocolate, cassis, and spices, good ripe fruit and extraction, and a weighty, large-scaled, tannic finish. Although still unevolved, it is beginning to throw off its cloak of tannin and exhibit more complexity and balance. I remain concerned about how well the fruit will hold, but this wine will undoubtedly hit its plateau around the turn of the century. Putting it in the context of what is a largely disappointing range of Mouton-Rothchilds in the decade of the seventies,

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1969

Pauillac, 1er Grand Cru classe
High Shoulder

Lovely colour, mature but lively appearance; clean nose, lovely vinous warmth, cassis and cedar and mint, classic Pauillac; lovely and lively palate, cassis flavours, complete for a 1969, lively acidity in check; clean and dry finish, good length. Much better than the bottle from the same cellar tasted ten years ago. Rating applies to the first 15 minutes after opening, loses its definition very quickly after that.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1966

Pauillac 1st Growth Classification
Very top shoulder. Label bin soiled.

Robert Parker writes '... the dark garnet colour and classic sweet, spicy, tobacco, coffee, and black currant aromas are enticing. The wine still has powerful tannin in the finish, which contributes to the dry, austere character this example has always exhibited. One of the more intellectually-styled Moutons, the 1966 is a classic example of the vintage, as well as of the chateau's Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated style. Tasted 10/97 Bordeaux, 3rd Edition. Rating 90/100 (outstanding)

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1957

Pauillac Premiere Grand Cru Classe (Level at base of neck label damaged, vintage barely legible)

Artist; Andre Masson.

This wine had a solid ruby core turning brown at the edges. Notes of iodine, bandaid, leather and barnyard. On the palate I got leather, brown sugar, tawny port notes with faint notes or red fruit. Dry with no detectable tannins. Medium plus finish.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1967

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe (high shoulder)

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, one of the most famous wines in the world! A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Appropriately, the bottles for each vintage, of this first-growth Bordeaux, have been adorned by labels created by the world's great artists since 1945. The 1967 is a collectors item.

The 1967 Mouton has on the nose "Plum, Wild Berry, Leather, Library Books and Spice. Palate: Very nice density for its age with an elegant approach. Very silky and well resolved palate that offered fading fruit of black cherry and plum with nice but muted secondary notes of leather, tobacco and some sweet herbs.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1964

Pauillac Premiere Grand Cru Classe (Henry Moore label)

Reviews ....
"pretty good cork was in beautiful shape. Color was brick red and showed nice tart cherries and fresh earthy aromas. The flavor profile showed reasonable concentration and while a bit earthy and a tad acidic, was full of dried red fruits and wonderful spices. While tannins were fully resolved the acid kept this reasonably fresh and inviting. A nice long rustic earthy finish kept me coming back for more."
