Chateau-Mouton-2009-red-900x1500

Château Mouton Rothschild 2009, 1er Grand Cru Classe Pauillac

£725.00

Château Mouton Rothschild was acquired by the Rothschild family in 1853 with Baron Philippe de Rothschild assuming control in 1922. Philippe was a dynamic figure who revolutionised the running of the estate. His greatest achievement was to have Mouton upgraded to 1st Growth Status in 1973 – the only change ever to be made to the 1855 Classification. The 2009 vintage is stylish and complex, its label is illustrated by the renowned sculptor, painter and visual artist Anish Kapoor.

Tasting notes

This Mouton is monolithic! Its super rich, polished and incredibly complex. The nose serves up a treat of roasted coffee, mint, blackberry jam, toasted oak, liquorice and violets. All those wonderful complexities leave the nose and re-appear on the palate. It’s muscular, and concentrated beyond belief, but supple and somehow approachable. This wine needs a decade to evolve, buts there’s a genuine chance this may be one of the finest Mouton’s ever made.
