1989 CHÂTEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILD 1989

German-born contemporary art painter Hans Georg Kern had the honor of designing the 1989 Château Mouton Rothschild label to highlight this extraordinary vintage in Bordeaux. His painting combines both the symbol of the Castle represented by the sheep and the historical news of this year 1989: the fall of Berlin in Germany. These overturned sheep and added the words "Drüben sein jetzt hier" written the meaning "The other side is now with us".
Château Mouton Rothschild 1989 reveals smoky and toasted touches, as well as aromas of liquorice, spices and cedar. This Premier Cru Classé is made from 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc and 8% Merlot. 1989 is a very great vintage at Château Mouton Rothschild.

Wine Spectator

(06-2001) Black color. Toasted oak, mint and very ripe berry and cherry. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and lovely, ripe fruit. Cassis finish. Always a classic.

Tom Cannavan (01-2011) The wine was decanted, only to take it off its sediment. The colour is browning a little, with a red oxide overall hue but some ruby at the core. On the nose there is a gorgeously deep, truffle and game perfume, withal rich berry fruit and subtle Sandalwood notes. There's a suggestion of real intensity. On the palate the wine has plenty of authority. It has a core of spicy tannin and lean, sinewy tannin and acidity, but there's a richness to both texture and fruit flavour too. Spiced plums, tobacco and lots of concentration. A lovely Mouton, with seemingly time ahead of it too.

(03-2000) Fantastic bouquet and flavour. A touch of iodine, lovely mid-palate fruit, its high Cabernet Sauvignon content (about 76%) having provided the exclusive Mouton flavour and character. Leaner than expected and still very tannic.

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
