Most recently, a richly coloured, fully mature magnum with good crisp fruit, vivacity and dry finish.

The vintage Bordeaux 55 marks the border between the wines of old and modern wines, made from riper grapes. I've never been disappointed by 1955, while 59 and 61 leave me sometimes on my hunger. The color has remained young, dark and intense with hints of vermilion on the fringe. The intense nose exudes cassis, cedar, spice, all with finesse. From the attack, the sweetness of the palate sensations mark. The body round, juicy, full of freshness, the taste of ripe fruit and nutmeg. The entire background with grace and just like in the 62 and 61, the end appears tannin, not grainy. It simply reminds the old vines. Good length. I had tasted better a few months earlier (18.5), yet the bottle came from the same fund from the same location. This vintage is a good deal like the 83.

The 1955 should be a vintage to buy at auction as I suspect the price is more reasonable than what such acclaimed vintages as 1959 and 1961 fetch. The color reveals no amber or rust, only a slight lightening of intensity at the edge. The nose offers up that explosive Mouton perfume of mint, leather, cassis, black olives, and lead pencil. In the mouth, there is stunning concentration, magnificent extraction of fruit, and plenty of tannin in the long finish. The wine still tastes remarkably young and could easily last another 20-30 years. Amazing!.

A blockbuster that is superbly youthful despite its age, offering a symphony of seductive aromas and flavors of mint, cassis, black currant, chocolate and vanilla. An enormous wine to cellar until at least 2000.

Mouton Rothschild

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.
