Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2015

In the famous 1855 Bordeaux Wine Classification, Mouton Rothschild was classified as a Second Growth in Pauillac, even though the estate's wines were widely recognised as being of the same quality as those of the four First Growth châteaux: Margaux, Lafite, Latour and Haut-Brion.

After nearly twenty years of tireless efforts, Baron Philippe de Rothschild triumphed in 1973, when Jacques Chirac (then Minister of Agriculture) signed an official decree declaring Château Mouton Rothschild the fifth Premier Cru Classé of Pauillac.

Grape Varietals: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc

Wine Region: Paulliac, Bordeax, France

Tasting Notes: Deep garnet-purple colored, this Mouton pulls off an incredibly impactful entrance, emerging from the glass with profound notes of blackberry preserves, plum pudding, crème de cassis and grilled meats, featuring perfectly accessorized accents of sandalwood, cinnamon stick and fenugreek with wafts of dried roses, unsmoked cigars and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely packed with rich, ripe black fruits sparked with blue and red fruit undertones and an incredible structure of very firm, very ripe tannins, with seamless freshness and an epically long, earth-laced finish. Possessing striking natural beauty framed by impeccable crafting, this 2015 is a total diva and well worth attention. Give it a good 7-8 years in bottle, at least, and drink it over the next 30+ years. 

Food Pairings: Rare grilled beef
