This is a case from one of our investment syndicates – a super second wine!
From the iconic Mouton Rothschild stable in Pauillac, this is the famous second wine. Dark, dense and brooding in the glass, blackcurrant fruit dominates on the palate that shows excellent concentration and depth, with fresh acidity and firm, yet ripe and well-knit, tannins. Cherry fruit, spice and some lovely graphite characters add complexity on the finish and there is a really nicely-focused linear structure throughout.
There is gravitas here, it is so generous, and a long succulent finish lasts for many minutes. This is another step in the right direction for this important second wine which has been improving year on year for several vintages now. This is one of the ultimate investment grade wines.
