Mouton-Rothschild Bordeaux Blend Wine 2007
***** - Decanter Magazine ‘Best Value *****’ - Decanter Magazine"Attractively perfumed rose, tobacco, mint vanilla and black fruit. Generous black fruit palate surrounded by supple tannins and fresh acidity. Long, lifted and complex. From 2010." Decanter Magazine. The concept behind the Trio range from Concha y Toro is a vision to create each wine from three carefully selected elements. Just as Trio is a blend of three varieties, its creator is a three-way mixture of experience, vision and supreme talent. Winemaker Ignacio Recabarren is responsible for Concha y Toro’s Premium and Ultra Premium wines. He delivers Trio’s expressiveness, sophistication and balance. For the Cabernet Sauvignon it is three different grape varieties, which when blended together create a harmonious wine. The resulting wine is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Shiraz and 15% Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Sauvignon element conveys structure and concentration, while sturdy tannins provide length to the finish. The Syrah element opens up in aromatic exuberance, vitality and expression, and finally Cabernet Franc's delicate aroma imparts superb finesse and balance to this premium blend. It shows intense and vital red, with aromas of spice, black cherry, blueberry and a fine perfume of tobacco. It is firm on the palate, powerful, with a long persistence. These three varieties come together to shape a well structured, concentrated and intensely aromatic blend. The rich and concentrated qualities of this wine make it a fantastic partner for duck breast, beef stew or game, but is also most enjoyable drunk by itself.

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.
dark deep black currants, varying dark fruit, intense flavors, a tinge of jamminess, awesome length on the palate, yum!
- Tasted at Wine Spectator New World Wine Experience 2010
A superb white produced by Château Mouton-Rothschild. Expensive but the 2007 is worth a try, for a special occasion. Captivating floral, citrus and white fruit aromas, round with a subtle yet crisp acidity.
External Reviews for Mouton-Rothschild Bordeaux Blend Wine
Composed of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot the deep purple-colored 2007 Mouton reveals sweet aromas of creme de cassis subtle oak and flowers. Medium to full-bodied and elegant with sweet tannin as well as flavors and a texture that build incrementally on the palate this strong effort should evolve over the next 15 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Attractive blackberry and toasted oak, with plenty of tar and licorice on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with good fruit and ripe tannins, but slightly hollow in the center palate. Second wine of Mouton. Seems better than the 2006. Score range: 85... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Le Petit Mouton 750ml
The price of one of Chilersquo;s flagship wines keeps climbing, but fortunately so does the quality. Winemaker Enrique Tirago has crafted yet another pounding, saturated Cabernet. Itrsquo;s wonderfully meshed yet potent and fierce. Boysenberry, cassis and kirsch flavors control the extracted palate, while the finish is warm, creamy and fun, sort of like a milkshake. At 14.5%, Melchor is at its max. Hold until 2010 and then drink through 2015.
From El Tocornal, on the north bank of the Maipo river, this latest release of Don Melchor is still too young to completely reveal its character. Menthol and black cherry aromas dominate the wine. The palate, severe and tight, speaks of strength and musculature rather than Melchorrsquo;s usual gentleness. Decant it now for game, or save a bottle for the next five to six years.
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is opaque purple-colored with aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, scorched earth, black currant, and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by an opulent, very intense, complex Cabernet with gobs of savory fruit, exceptional depth, and enough structure to evolve for 6ndash;8 years. This lengthy, classy effort will be at its best from 2015 to 2035.
The 2006 Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon is a glass-coating opaque purple with an alluring bouquet of toast, tobacco, cedar, leather, mocha, and blackcurrant. Sweet, voluptuous (but not in a fruit bomb kind of way), layered, and complex already, its superb balance will ensure at least a decade of evolution and it should drink well through 2036.
Still very tight, but the tannins that lead the way now are sleek and refined, and should easily meld into the huge core of roasted chestnut, black currant paste, warm fig and tar. Has a long, coffee- and loam-tinged finish. Best from 2009 through 2019.
