1986 CHÂTEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILD 1986

The very great 1986 vintage was produced by the artist Bernard Séjourné. Originally from Haiti, this artist-painter highlights the Château Mouton Rothschild through a painting on wood that is part of a lunar, dreamy and mysterious atmosphere. The work represents female masks with half-closed eyes and long, slender necks. Shells and exotic flowers also appear on this painting which seems to be in motion.
Château Mouton Rothschild 1986 has aromas of dried fruits, prunes and milk caramel. Notes of rancio, peppery spices and cedar make it a complex wine. This Premier Cru Classé is made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
 The 1986 Mouton-Rothschild is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot that was picked from 2 October until 16 October. Winemaker Philippe Dhalluin, who was not working at the property back then, told me that the pH was fairly low at 3.54 when it is usually around 3.75, due to the natural tartaric acid in the vines. It has a powerful and intense bouquet as always: exemplary graphite and cedar scents, a touch of black pepper and incense. It seems to unfurl in the glass, like a motor revving its engine. The palate is beautifully balanced with its trademark firm tannic structure, a Mouton-Rothschild with backbone and masculinity. Layers of black fruit intermingling with mint and graphite, a hint of licorice emanating from the Merlot, gently fanning out and my God, it is incredibly long. It is not like the 1985 Mouton-Rothschild that is so fleshy and generous. This is serious, aristocratic Mouton, a true vin de garde and yes, I do think drinkers will have to wait until it reaches its true peak. Sometimes that's just the way it is.

 Ageless, yet balanced. Black color. Mint, mineral, berry and cherry. Full-bodied, chewy and tight. Long, long finish. A great, great wine.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider
Firm, fiercely tannic, strict, and young, this bottle remains stubbornly adolescent. Incredibly concentrated, powerful, long and intense, this is a modern-day version of the 1928, which took 50-60 years to come around. Younger consumers with patience should take a good look at this. Provided that youth and patience can get along.

Strong crimson garnet, wide ocher edge, orange reflections. Attractive dark berry fruit on the nose, tobacco, nuances of dried herbs, some nougat, ripe cherry fruit, fine precious wood spice. Firm tannins on the palate, hints of blackberry confit and dark nougat, sweet and opulent in the core, mineral, tobacco nuances, very good length, fresh and persistent, salty finish, has reached its first real drinking high point, safe further aging potential.

Adrian van Velsen - vvWine
Strong Bordeaux red, almost no age tones. The nose is simply a spectacle, immensely deep, noble, smoky, dark fruity, blackberries, black currants, dark cherries, wonderful spice, cinnamon, then also eucalyptus, fir resin, it's enormously complex, a drug for the nose, I could sniff for hours . Firm on the palate, youthful, fresh and with very nice fruit at the beginning, dark berries again, sensationally dense, a lot of everything and nothing too much, very good balance, the wine has an impressive structure, strength and body and is at the same time enormously rich in finesse , finely woven tannins support the fruit. The finish is fresh, long-lasting and wonderfully balanced.

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
