To enhance the Mouton Rothschild 1994 label, the managers turned to the Dutch painter Karel Appel. He is the first Dutch artist to illustrate a Château label. This work reveals a couple dancing around a bottle drawn here in the form of a real totem, as if to free the spirit of the wine which is still imprisoned there.
Château Mouton Rothschild 1994 has a complex nose, with touches of leather, wax, oak and a floral underpinning. This Premier Cru Classé is made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot.

(01-1997) Dark-colored, with intense aromas of blackberries, tar and spice, and toasted oak notes as well. Full-bodied, with very silky tannins and a chewy, ripe fruit-accented finish. An impressive Mouton.

(11-2011) Tasted at 28-50 restaurant at the 1994 dinner. Like many 1994s, I feel that many of the top tier Clarets have nudged past their peaks and the First Growths are no exception. The nose is still fragrant with blackberry, mint, cassis and a touch of pastilles. It is surprisingly primal when compared to the likes of Las-Cases. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity and a pleasurable fleshy core. As before, it does not quite have the complexity of vintages produced in the noughties, although there is a pert little touch of fresh blueberry on the finish. Fine. Drink now-2020. Tasted November 2011.

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
