Chateau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 1st Grand Cru Classe 2019
2019 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac, 1er Grand Cru Classe, 750ml: The 2019 vintage of Chateau Mouton Rothschild is a wine of exceptional quality and finesse. It has a complex nose of black fruits, graphite, and tobacco, while the palate is full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long, persistent finish. This wine is a true expression of the Pauillac terroir and the expertise of the Mouton Rothschild team.
The wine is dense, concentrated, massive. It has a perfect combination of spice, dark fruits and tannins giving impressive potential. The wine is likely to take many years. Drink from 2027. Roger Voss
Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) -
The 2019 Mouton Rothschild is the most dramatic of the Médoc first growths, soaring from the glass with aromas of cassis, blackberries and violets mingled with rich aromas of cedar, cigar wrapper, licorice, loamy soil and spices. Full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's deep and powerful, with huge levels of concentration and an ineffably complete, seamless profile, concluding with a long, resonant finish. Plenty of ripe tannin is hidden by its ample core of fruit, and despite its youthful polish, this will require plenty of bottle age to realize all its potential. This blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot tastes in many respects like the 2016 Mouton's more sun-kissed cousin. - Reviewed by William Kelley
