1985 CHÂTEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILD 1985

Belgian surrealist artist, Paul Delvaux sublimates the Mouton Rothschild 1985 by creating a unique and original design for this label. Paul Delvaux represents here two model and chaste little girls of his drawing seem pensive and invaded by shyness. It is the bunch of grapes, the central element of the drawing, which links the two young women and connects them to each other.
Château Mouton Rothschild 1985 has fruity aromas of blackberries, blueberries and blackcurrants, as well as hints of mint, vanilla incense and cocoa. This Premier Cru Classé is made from 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.

An exciting wine at the top but not yet over it. Will continue recklessly for another ten years or more.

Strong ruby garnet, wider water edge. On the nose, dark berry confit, delicate cassis and chocolate, fine hints of suede, blackberries, exotic spices, cinnamon, mocha, fine rust aromas, attractive, typical bouquet. Elegant, almost a touch wide-meshed, striking tannins that are well integrated, sweet dark berry note in the finish, dark chocolate, rich in finesse structure, somewhat demanding nuances in the finish, fine spice and good length, a multi-faceted food companion.

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
Tasted from an Imperiale at the Claret Club -85 Dinner at -The Square-. Interesting this: one of the best -85s but rendered far more reticent and backward in this large Imperiale format. It does have a gorgeous nose if you can wait for an hour and even so, much more generous and expressive than Lafite -85. Touches of pencil box, redcurrant and black truffle here. The palate is tannic, full-bodied and masculine, easing up with aeration, beautifully poised with a touch of black tea and tobacco towards the finish. This seems to be 10-years behind the regular bottle format! Tasted December 2009.

Château Mouton Rothschild
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
