The Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2009 catches the eye with its dense, deep, magnetic ink color. The aromatic bouquet defines itself with complexity that constantly evolves over time that allows the discovery of other aromas. It reveals rich blackcurrant and blackberry aromas that signify the role of the Left Bank’s flagship black grape variety, Cabernet Sauvignon (88%). Tobacco and dried herb notes gradually appear, along with the typical fresh cedar notes from the Pauillac terroir.
On the palate, the Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2009 expresses the quintessence of the Pauillac appellation. The frank attack wraps the palate in intense flavors that demonstrate the perfect ripeness of the fruit. The roundness from Merlot (12%) gives a refined, delicate texture which results in a perfect harmony of silkiness and finesse. All this is highlighted within a structure of fine-grained, melted tannins. The opulent, lengthy finish leaves a beautiful impression with the unmistakable signature of Mouton Rothschild. A simply beautiful Pauillac.
