Each year, Château Mouton Rothschild asks for a different artist to design the labels for these vintages. For the 1991 vintage, a Japanese artist named Setsuko designed and created the label. Its design poetically tells the chronology and evolution of the wine: the presence of grapes was first flower, then fruit; she then, generous as the ear of wheat, delivered her grain to the pickers; finally, the long-awaited outcome, the carafe well filled until the tasting of this cru.
Château Mouton Rothschild 1991 presents a rather fine aromatic expression, with fruity touches and floral touches such as jasmine. This Premier Cru Classé is made from 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 18% Merlot.

The 1991 exhibits a moderately dark rubypurple color, as well as a promising and complex nose of such classic Pauillac aromas as lead pencil, roasted nuts, and ripe cassis. The initial richness is quickly obliterated by frightful levels of tannin, and a tough, hard finish. Although there is an interesting and alluring dimension to this wine, the tannin level is excessively high.

Incredibly fine and subtle for the vintage with tobacco, black currant and berry aromas and flavors, medium body and a long flavorful, silky finish.

. . . rich, gingery quite powerful, surprising tannins and acidity. . . a luminous cherry red; singed, biscuity, mocha nose; crisp, quite good with veal which ameliorated the slightly better finish. .

15.(2004) Spring frost destroyed the first sprouts. Many wines have produced wine from grapes of a second generation, which explains the smell of plant often found on the vintage. It is also the case of 1991 that there is a lack of good fresh fruit. The mouth seems more interesting than the nose, soft, melted tasty. The wine is ready to drink. In the finish, a little dry tannin is a sign of a tough year.

Château Mouton Rothschild

Mouton Rothschild is arguably one of the best-known wine estates in the world. In AOC Pauillac, since 1973 it has been First Classified Growth in the official classification of Bordeaux wines of 1855.

Bought in 1853 by Nathaniel de Rothschild, Brane Mouton became legendary under the name of Château Mouton-Rothschild. It is with the advent of Baron Philippe de Rothschild that Mouton really becomes the monumental 1er Cru that it is today. Mouton Rothschild 1945 and 1982 are among their finest vintages. In addition to the construction of cellars and buildings, and the accession to Premier Cru status, it is the passion of a lifetime rediscovered in action by this exceptional man.

Classified as a Second Classified Growth in 1855, Château Mouton Rothschild has been a Premier Classified Growth since 1973. Its motto "First not then, second not deign, Mouton am" thus became "First I am, second I was, Mouton does not change".

The elegance and magic of this wine have thus charmed the greatest contemporary artists who, each year, illustrate with their art the priceless wines of Mouton by creating an original work on the label. Château D'Armailhac and Château Clerc Milon follow in the footsteps of this quality concern of the Rothschild family.

The great vintages of Château Mouton Rothschild are: 1994, 1989, 1986, 1985, 1983, 1982, 1970, 1966, 1962, 1961, 1959, 1955, 1953, 1949, 1947, 1945
