Description

A Pauillac wine with an exceptional density and aromatic brilliance

The estate

In 1853, Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild acquired Chateau Brane-Mouton at an auction. Located in the heart of the Medoc, in Pauillac, he renamed the estate Chateau Mouton Rothschild. In 1924, Baron Philippe de Rothschild took over the running of the estate. A true pioneer, he decided to start bottling directly on the estate and designed the label of the wine. 1973 marked the year when Chateau Mouton Rothschild became a Premier Cru Classe. Iconic in the Pauillac appellation, Chateau Mouton Rothschild has made fine Bordeaux wines shine throughout the world.

The vineyard

Situated to the north-west of Bordeaux, in the Medoc, Chateau Mouton Rothschild’s vineyard spreads across 90 hectares. The vines are planted on gravelly soils that retain the heat and release it during the night, thus favouring the ripening of the grapes. These poor, draining soils rest on a clay-gravel subsoil, giving this fine Pauillac wine a unique powerful, elegant and tannic structure.

The vintage

A very wet winter and spring preceded an extremely dry summer and autumn. The high temperatures in summer led to water stress and resulted in small, concentrated grapes, these weather conditions also favored a slow, high-quality ripening process. Harvesting began on September 26th with the Merlot and ended on October 14th. The density and aromatic richness of the 2016 vintage can thus be compared to the 21st century’s finest vintages.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (83%)

Merlot (15%)

Cabernet Franc (1%)

Petit Verdot (1%).

Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2016: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Color

This wine is a beautiful cherry red color, dark and intense.

Nose

Delicate and aromatic, the nose reveals fragrances of ripe black fruits (blueberries, blackcurrants) and flowers. Upon aeration, peppery and spicy notes emerge along with elegant notes of graphite and light tobacco.

Palate

Full and generous, this wine seduces the palate with its silky and enfolding tannins. Black fruit aromas are combined with notes of cocoa and biscuits. On the finish, the wine is round and reveals a delicious aromatic persistence.
