Château Mouton Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2006
Chateau Mouton Rothschild has a relatively deep color with a garnet tint shading slightly to orange. The nose is surprisingly rich, revealing a wide variety of ripe fruit – blackcurrant, blackberry, tropical fruit, fruit preserve – together with leather and humus, mocha, tobacco and cigar box, all mingled in a highly complex bouquet. Both round and very expressive on the palate, it displays supple, silky tannins integrated into elegant oak and a pleasant freshness that fills out on caramel and vanilla flavors with a slightly minty note. The nicely long and flavorsome finish is entirely typical of the vintage, seductive and with the pleasant disposition of an already well-rounded structure.

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.

This extraordinary Mouton should turn out to be the finest they have made since the monumental 1982 and 1986. In early tastings, Mouton often seems to tag along behind the other first-growths. Yet in ... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Mouton-Rothschild 750ml

Gorgeous aromas of currant, raspberry and mineral. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins. Long and caressing, building on the palate. Very pretty, very elegant. Subtle and seductive.

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!!!!
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
