Mouton-Rothschild is unashamedly “classic” in style.
94-96 points, Neal Martin

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.

      Tasting Notes

      Goedhuis, April 2018, Score: 93-95

      A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. The winemaking team here made the most of the drawn out four week harvesting period in September to select the very best fruit for the Grand Vin. A wine true to the Mouton mould, deep garnet in colour, it has a joyous, open aroma of luscious, dark, wild fruits. The palate is broad, coating the mouth with flavours of cocoa, Arabian spices and fresh coffee beans. A full and generous style, with a lovely Pauillac drive and tannic edge, finishing beautifully bright and fresh.
