Adrian Van Velsen (09-2018) Still amazingly strong ruby, orange tones at the edge. Peat, whiskey, ash, charcoal, cool smoke on the nose, red cherries with more air and a spiciness that reminds me of a grassy Zincarlin from Ticino. The palate is accessible and soft, medium-bodied, melted tannins, well-integrated acidity supports. The wine is supple and shows a nice smoothness, appears almost full on the mid palate with notes of cranberries, blackberries and a stimulating spiciness in the finish. No, this Mouton is really not big. But this bottle showed a very nice balance in the context of its really not good fill level. If you still have bottles of it in the cellar, you should drink them up.

(11-2008) At first we were worried. Although the cork came out in one piece it was clearly saturated. Still, the fill level was up in the lower part of the neck. We had very low expectations for the wine as it's well out of it's drinking window. And so it was opened. The fragrance was surprisingly sweetand fruit forward, with no sign of vinegar. The initial taste, however, was entirely out of balance. First it tasted sour and after ten seconds or so in the mouth a strong taste of sweet cherries emerged. We decanted, and over an hour the wine emerged. Fun to drink, and far more life remaining than we expected. An excellent adventure.

Doctorwine (04-2016) I had not tasted such a convincing Mouton Rothschild like this in years. The red color is nicely intact with only a few brick notes on the edge. The aromas are decidedly bottle-aged with notes of underbrush, fine mushroom, black truffle and strong spice. Very peppery. The mouthfeel is intense, expressive, assorted and stimulated.

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.
