Ch Mouton Rothschild 1er Cru Pauillac 2017
Today looks set to be the busiest of the campaign so far. The releases have been led by Château Mouton Rothschild, the first First Growth of the 2017 campaign at £2,160/6, 17% down on the 2016 release price.
Mouton’s name is synonymous with excellence and class, and in 2017 its quality has been lauded by the critics. “It is a cliché but this Mouton-Rothschild is unashamedly “classic” in style”, says Neal Martin, 94-96 points, and Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW awarded it a colossal 97-99 points at The Wine Advocate.
The Mouton brand grows in stature every year, and this impressive 2017 is the latest in a string of impeccable releases. Its gravelly soils are perfect territory for Cabernet Sauvignon. The variety thrived in 2017, and at 90% of the 2017 blend, this wine has muscular stature for long term ageing, combined with exquisitely poised tannin texture.
