Chateau Mouton Rothschild, a Premier Cru Classe from the Bordeaux region and one of the world's greatest nines, is owned by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, daughter of the legendary Baron Philippe. The estate includes 207 acres of vines at Pauillac planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (77%), Merlot (12%), Cabernet Franc (9%), and Petit Verdot (2%). It benefits from exceptionally good natural conditions, both in the quality of the soil and in the situation of its vines and their exposure to the sun. From the grape to the bottle, Chateau Mouton Rothschild receives meticulous attention to detail, combining a respect for tradition with the latest techniques. Harvesting is carried out by hand and the wine is matured in new oak casks. In 1853, Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild, a member of the English branch of the family, bought Chateau Brane-Mouton and renamed it Chateau Mouton Rothschild. In 1922, his great-grandson Baron Philippe de Rothschild (1902-1988), decided to take the future of the es

Looks like a 2006. Very sweet and ripe yet with real zest on the nose. Lots of acidity. Could be Lafite 2006? Very fresh and racy. Real lift to this wine which is distinguished by its fine tannins. 18/20 Jancis Robinson.

Mouton 2006 is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot. Dense black cherry with a purple rim, the wine has remarkable focus and concentration while holding all in reserve. The aroma is profound and of exceptional class with complex fruit scents. The palate follows, reserved at first, then showing a profound core of layered, multifaceted fruit and perfectly judged oak. The tannins are very firm and of high class.

Half-Bottle, 375ml ,br> The wine of the vintage according to Robert Parker. Scoring it 98+ points he has deemed the 2006 Mouton Rothschild their best wine since 1986. "A sensational effort, the 2006 Mouton Rothschild exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a classic Mouton perfume of creme de cassis, flowers, blueberries, and only a hint of oak. Dalhuin told me that in whisky barrel-tasting vintages such as 1989 and 1990, Mouton was aged in heavily-toasted barrels, and they have backed off to a much lighter toast for the barrels’ interior. I think this has worked fabulously well with the cassis quality fruit they get from their Cabernet Sauvignon. The full-bodied, powerful 2006 possesses extraordinary purity and clarity. A large-scaled, massive Mouton Rothschild that ranks as one of the top four or five wines of the vintage, it may turn out to be the longest-lived wine of the vintage by a landslide. The label will undoubtedly be controversial as a relative of Sigmund Freud, Lucian Freud, has painted a rather comical Zebra staring aimlessly at what appears to be a palm tree in the middle of a stark courtyard. I suppose a psychiatrist could figure out the relationship between that artwork and wine, but I couldn’t see one. This utterly profound Mouton will need to sleep for 15+ years before it will reveal any secondary nuances, but it is a packed and stacked first-growth Pauillac of enormous potential. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2060+." In a half bottle it will mature more quickly and sooner be ready to enjoy. Very Limited!!!!

Complex aromas of crushed berries, cedar, mahogany and sweet tobacco follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. There's also lots of coffee. Balanced and very beautiful already. Best after 2015. 15,830 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Mouton-Rothschild 1500ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Sehr dunkles Weinrot mit violetten und fast schwarzen Reflexen. Klassisches Mouton-Cassisbouquet, dicht, füllig und süss, im Untergrund schwarze, getrocknete Beeren, Bounty-Kokos, dunkle Pralinen, Kaffee-Dessertbohnen, mineralischer Touch, Terpentinnuancen, zu Kopf steigend. Im Gaumen erstaunlich saftig, weil die Gerbstoffe fein und sehr elegant sind, seidige Textur, ausgeglichene Adstringenz, im Finale viel Würztöne, zarte Schokobitterkeit und wieder viel Cassis. Gleicht stark seinem eigenen 1994er, vielleicht mit einer Spur mehr Kraft, aber auch «nobler Arroganz», geniale Länge.
