Château Mouton Rothschild 2016

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: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot

Wine Region: Paulliac, Bordeax, France

Tasting Notes: The wine is a dark and intense cherry red. The highly refined nose reveals perfectly ripe fruit. Ripe bilberry and blackcurrant aromas combine harmoniously with floral notes. With airing, the nose unfolds on pepper and spice balanced by elegant notes of graphite and blonde tobacco, bringing charm and nobility to an extensive range of aromas. The full and dense attack exhibits exceptionally well-rounded and silky tannins. The ample mid-palate abounds in black fruit along with cocoa flavours and biscuity notes, leading into a full-bodied and remarkably persistent finish, the sign of a great vintage.
