1999 CHÂTEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILD 1999

The particularity of Château Mouton Rothschild is to ask a different artist each year to create the label for the Premier Cru Classé Château Mouton Rothschild. That of the 1999 vintage was designed and created by a French artist: Raymond Savignac. He takes advantage of his gift for caricature and offers an offbeat design on one of the most coveted wine bottles in the world: Mouton Rothschild. Here, he refers to a poetic and colorful return to basics with the symbol of the Château: the sheep. A beautiful invitation to the pleasure of tasting a classified growth that will undoubtedly remain etched in our memories.
Château Mouton Rothschild 1999 is full of generosity and freshness, characteristic of the vintage. This Premier Cru Classé is made from 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc.

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 1999 Mouton-Rothschild is a "useful," perhaps over-looked vintage from the First Growth estate. It has a clean and precise bouquet - you could almost describe this as dainty, which I mean in a positive sense. The fruit is beautifully delineated, almost pastille-like with subtle floral scents emerging with time. The palate is fresh on the entry with supple red berries pierced by a fine line of acidity. No, it is not complex and it has lost a little substance in recent years, yet it is well balanced with sufficient depth and body on the tobacco and cedar-tinged finish. If you can put its status aside, it boils down to nothing more than a well-made, easygoing and refined Pauillac to drink now and over the next decade.

Delivers sweet tobacco and plum aromas, with a lovely richness. Full-bodied, featuring lots of cedar, tobacco, chocolate and berry character. Long and silky in the palate. There is no sense in waiting; this is so delicious now.

Sweet and lively and lean and a little tart. Fine but not ineluctably first growth standard. A bit stolid and simple. .

Very sweet, hovering between lissom and plump ripeness. Next. . deep velvety; toasted Cabernet aroma that opened up beautifully. 'Fleshy' noted again, dry finish and charm. .

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
