Château Mouton Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 1996
The dense ruby/purple-hued, fresh, vivacious Mouton-Rothschild offers hints of new saddle leather, truffles, cassis, and pain grille, zesty acidity, a touch of austerity, and a medium-bodied, streamlined, restrained personality. This rich, pure claret will require patience as it needs a decade of cellaring to shed its lofty tannins.

Since 1933, Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, located at Pauillac in the Médoc, has been motivated by a constant ambition: to make the world's finest wines, each in its own category, whether the châteaux wines for which it is responsible – the renowned Château Mouton Rothschild, a First Growth, and its distinguished lieutenants, Château Clerc Milon and Château d'Armailhac – or branded wines, like the famous Mouton Cadet.

External Reviews for Château Mouton Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac
Firm texture and complex aromas of chocolate, fruit and cedar. It's all held together with sleek, firm tannins. Very good fruit extraction.
Ageless, yet balanced. Black color. Mint, mineral, berry and cherry. Full-bodied, chewy and tight. Long, long finish. A great, great wine. Drink now.
...It possesses an exuberant, flamboyant bouquet of roasted coffee, cassis, smoky oak, and soy sauce. The impressive 1996 Mouton-Rothschild offers impressive aromas of black currants, framboise, coffee, and new saddle leather. This full-bodied, ripe,... Robert Parker.

...the wine, while dark ruby/purple in color is not opaque. However, the bouquet... would probably merit a 96 or 97. Perfumed with oriental spices, soy sauce, leather, toasty oak, mocha, and gobs of black currants, the aromas are amazingly developed for such a young wine. In the mouth, however, despite the impressive concentration, the wine appears to lack weight and depth... undoubtably an outstanding Mouton... I suspect most admirers of the flashy, dramatic style of wine made at Mouton will want to consume it between 1994-2010.
In a rainy harvest, there are the people who panic and pick while the fruit is still diluted, and the people who wait. With a fine terroir, waiting is often the best defense against the weather. And by the smell of the '94 Mouton, these are the people who waited. The wine shows a super maturity straight through. It's filled with potent, luscious, roasted fruit flavors. New oak boosts the richness further with caramelized sweetness. The wine is quite pretty, but it lacks the extra dimension of a first in this vintage.
Gorgeous aromas of spices, berries, chocolate and raspberries introduce this pedigree bottling. A glorious young wine that gets better and better as you taste it, itandrsquo;s full-bodied and incredibly silky, with super-integrated tannins and a long, long aftertaste. At its best after 2004.
A magnificent wine that's ripe, powerful, seductive and amazingly deep. Massively concentrated and bursting with currant, plum, berry, cedar, chocolate and all sorts of exotic spice flavors, yet it keeps its balance, never going to excess. Lingers on the finish for minutes. A classic. Try to keep your hands off it until 2000 to 2010.
