Château Mouton Rothschild is one of the most famous wineries in the world – and they have been making some of the very best wine in the world since the Second World War. Château Mouton Rothschild is one of the 5 First Growth wineries, they are based in Pauillac in the Left Bank of Bordeaux.
Château Mouton Rothschild stand out from the crowd, as they commission a different artist to create the label for each vintage, with special persons in history including Prince Charles creating a label.
Unsurprisingly, Château Mouton Rothschild is very well regarded by the wine critics, with our benchmark critic Neal Martin scoring the wine with 96 points when he rescored the wines in February 2020. He commented;
“The 2017 Mouton-Rothschild is lucid in colour, quite deep like the Le Petit Mouton. It has a pixelated bouquet with precise blackberry, raspberry and crushed stone aromas, the oak seamlessly integrated so that the aromatics have unerring focus. The palate is medium-bodied with a graphite-tinged entry that is actually reminiscent of Latour in many ways. This Mouton-Rothschild is all about finesse and poise, the acidity beautifully judged and with superb tension on the finish. One of the finest Left Bank wines of the vintage, there are few 2017s superior to this. Drink 2025-2055.”
This is certainly a wine that you should have in your portfolio.
