Chateau Mouton Roths Premier Cru 1989

Winemaker's Notes:

Jancis review: Dark ruby with a hint of brick at the rim. More focussed and less exotic than<br/>the 1990 on the nose. Neat, concentrated. Tannins even a little severe on the<br/>palate. Fine, dense, a wine with lots of dry density - as opposed to the<br/>sweet opulence on the 1990. Refined and even elegant for a 1989. Racy, even<br/>lacy in its transparency and texture. Sweet, gentle palate. Very long and very<br/>lovely. Very impressive. <br/>(Jancis Robinson - jancisrobinson.com - Nov-2004)

Viña Almaviva:
In 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle, Chairman of Viña Concha y Toro S.A., sealed a partnership agreement with a view to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean wine called Almaviva. Produced under the joint technical supervision of both partners, the first vintage achieved immediate international success upon its launch in 1998.

Wine Spectator ReviewThis is outstanding quality, with pretty aromas and flavors of mint, berry and milk chocolate. Full- to medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a silky finish. But I have had better bottles than this. '89/'90 Bordeaux non-blind horizontal.(Feb 28, 2005)

Considering the vintages and the estate, Mouton's performances in 1989 and 1990 are puzzling. I have tasted these wines multiple times since my last reviews appeared in print. The 1989 Mouton-Rothschild is the superior wine, but in no sense is this a... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1989 Mouton-Rothschild 1500ml
