The Château Mouton Rothschild 1983 label was created by painter Saul Steinberg. A work that represents an empty beach where man is no more than a speck on the horizon, skies in pastel shades where the sun is represented by trompe-l'oeil stamps. It is this new look at the world, both peaceful and disenchanted, that his drawing for the Mouton Rothschild 1983 label expresses.

(10-1994) Super-refined 1983 Bordeaux with an excellent deep ruby color and intense cigar-box, plum and berry aromas and flavors; there's even a hint of mint. It's full-bodied but very reserved in style with fine tannins and a seductively long finish.

Tom Cannavan (01-1999) Wonderful to have a chance of adding to my experience of the '83 clarets, as I think I've now tasted all first and second growths apart from Lafite. Colour is a solid, dark ruby. The nose offers up gorgeous scents of rich blackcurrant with lovely complexity of mocha coffee, pencil-shavings and spice. There's a distinct aroma of black olive that adds an edge. The palate is medium-bodied and very graceful, with a warmth of black fruits and sweet oak, easy tannins and really tremendous length. The whole picture is very subtle and multi-layered. This is a truly lovely wine, whose charms reveal themselves more slowly than the Monte Bello.

(05-2015) Dark crimson and rather luxurious-looking. Very polished and sumptuous – beautifully-knit nose. Very polished tannins and quite a bit of tannin tucked away on the end. Not heavy but a class act. First-growth quality confirmed. Super fresh and clean on the finish. At peak now. Not that concentrated.

(10-1990) The classic Mouton lead-pencil, cedary nose has begun to emerge. This medium dark ruby, elegant, medium-bodied wine will never be a great or legendary Mouton. The flavors are ripe and moderately rich. With good depth and some firm tannins to resolve, this offering from Mouton is bigger and richer than the 1981, 1979, or 1978. Austere by the standards of Mouton and the vintage, the 1983 resembles the chateau's fine 1966. Anticipated maturity: Now-2015.

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.
