Infos produit

Each year Château Mouton Rothschild asks for a different artist to produce 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.

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

The Château Mouton Rothschild is one of the most prestigious wine in Bordeaux. Since 1973, it is a first classified growth in Médoc classification of 1855.


Purchased in 1853 by Nathaniel de Rothschild, Brane Mouton became a legend under the name of Mouton-Rothschild. With the advent of Baron Philippe de Rothschild Chateau Mouton Rothschild became the truly monumental 1er Cru it is today. In addition to the construction of cellars and buildings, and the ascension to 1er Cru status, it is the passion of a lifetime manifested in action by this remarkable man. Ranked Second Cru in 1855, it is now, since 1973, a premier cru classe. His motto became "First I am, second I was, Mouton does not change." The elegance and magic of this wine has charmed the most important contemporary artists who each year, illustrate their an original work of art on the label of Chateau Mouton Rothschild. Chateau D'Armailhac and Chateau Clerc Milon followed suit in the quality of the Rothschild family.
