Mouton-Rothschild Bordeaux Blend Wine 1986

Winemaker's Notes:

5241958

Château Mouton-rothschild:
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.

i've had only one glass of this wine, but i've got one in my cellar which i plan to drink probably sometime in 2016 or later! it seemed a massive wine from my one glass, and focused, deep, very long. but my thought was I'll bet this isn't even close to its apogee and deserves to be cellared for another 10 or so to reach its full maturity

What a gem. The 1986 Mouton was gorgeous the last time I had it. Big and bold, yet the tannins had acquired a softness that was downright voluptuous. The 1985 was also showing well. Overall lighter and more fruit-driven up front, but a real treat also.

Deep garnet-black colour. An incredible array of aromas on the nose: blackberry, black cherry, tobacco, espresso, leather, black olive and loam.

...currant currant leaf cedar and dusty oak on the nose. Tightly wound and classic with fabulous acids contributing to its powerful spine. Wonderfully pure and intense with great verve and grip... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Ageless, yet balanced. Black color. Mint, mineral, berry and cherry. Full-bodied, chewy and tight. Long, long finish. A great, great wine... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1986 Mouton-Rothschild 375ml

Though don't consider this a perfect wine, it has always been classic in quality. It's rich and fruity, with loads of currant, tobacco, smoke and new wood on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and an elegant finish.--1988

Wine Advocate ReviewAfter stumbling over some wines I thought were high class Bordeaux, I nailed this wine in one of the blind tastings for this article. In most tastings where a great Bordeaux is inserted with California Cabernets, the Bordeaux comes across as drier, more austere, and not nearly as rich and concentrated (California wines are inevitably fruitier and more massive). To put it mildly, the 1986 Mouton-Rothschild held its own (and then some), in a flight that included the Caymus Special Selection, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cask 23, Dunn Howell Mountain, and Joseph Phelps Eisele Vineyard. Clearly the youngest looking, most opaque and concentrated wine of the group, it tastes as if it has not budged in development since I first tasted it out of barrel in March, 1987. An enormously concentrated, massive Mouton-Rothschild, comparable in quality, but not style, to the 1982, 1959, and 1945, this impeccably made wine is still in its infancy. Interestingly, when I was in Bordeaux several years ago, I had this wine served to me blind from a magnum that had been opened and decanted 48 hours previously. Even then, it still tasted like a barrel sample! I suspect the 1986 Mouton-Rothschild requires a minimum of 15-20 more years of cellaring; it has the potential to last for 50-100 years!

<p>This wine has a medium-deep crimson color that is versatile with very mild tannins. It's nose and palate have profiles that include red fruits and a background of light wood. It has great length in the mouth and a smooth long finish. Recommended with a variety of dishes including meat sauces, grilled poultry and most cheeses. &nbsp;</p>
