  • Goedhuis, April 2022, Score: 97-99

    The attention to detail at this great first growth, culminating in army of 600 people picking the 2021 harvest at the Rothschild estates, has definitely paid off. A classical Mouton Rothschild composed of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. It radiates with scents of fresh summer berries and springtime flowers. The palate is equally exciting, balancing plush, rich dark berry fruits with a beautifully silky texture: the richness of fruit is wonderfully subtle. Finishing crisp and fresh, it is a truly vibrant wine. A delicious Mouton!

  • Neal Martin, April 2022, Score: 93-95

    The 2021 Mouton Rothschild marks a return to the classic style of this First Growth after three hot vintages. Unsurprisingly, the Cabernet Sauvignon takes control and expresses cigar smoke and graphite aromas. This is very well defined, yet examining the wine over several minutes, I was searching in vain for that "magic touch" exuded in recent vintages. The palate is beautifully-knit, quite edgy on the opening, comparatively slender and markedly sapid. Unapologetically linear on the finish, it is as if the growing season snipped off the frills that defines a great Mouton-Rothschild. This is a very fine First Growth, yet I hope it just gains a bit of weight and, to use a more accurate word, "presence", during the remainder of its barrel maturation. 13.1% alcohol. Drink 2027 - 2050

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2022, Score: 94-96

    The 2021 Mouton Rothschild is a potent, tightly wound Pauillac that will need a number of years to come together. Driving in its intensity, with searing tannins, the 2021 comes across as a bit severe today, with less of the charm and sensuality that is such a Mouton signature. That said, I was not thrilled with the quality of either of the two samples of the Grand Vin I tasted. Drink 2033-2051

  • Wine Advocate, April 2022, Score: 95-96

    The 2021 Mouton Rothschild is a terrific wine in the making, unfurling in the glass with aromas of cherries and wild berries mingled with notions of violets, espresso roast, pipe tobacco and mint. Medium to full-bodied, deep and seamless, it's a layered, enveloping wine that's ample and concentrated, with succulent acids, melting tannins and a long, resonant finish. A blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc that attained 13.1% alcohol, this is a demonstrative, sensual Mouton that's the fruit of extreme selection, and that may well make my score seem conservative with further élevage. Bravo to the talented Jean-Emmanuel Danjoy and his team.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2022, Score: 19.5

    This is a captivating Mouton, and the perfume alone is enough to stop you in your tracks. Exotically nuanced with chypre, fresh tobacco and spices leading the way, this aromatic fanfare does an extraordinary job of offsetting the simply epic fruit notes. The ‘anti-fruit’ balances perfectly the super-luxe Cabernet-dominant juiciness making it seem less exuberant and more innately sophisticated. There is no wine in the world like Mouton, and there is no flavour in 2021 like this wine. The stars have aligned here, and beyond the arrestingly pure Cabernet comes deliciously toothsome tannin. Super-fine, rhythmically abrasive and amazingly classy, I could eat these tannins off a spoon, they are so hedonistically appointed. This is a wine built from the tannins up, and yet it is not a skyscraper, nor is this a skyscraper vintage. It is a thrillingly complex and labyrinthine creation with so many twists and turns of flavour, and none of them flashy or ostentatious, that it keeps you guessing from the start to the very end. It is an old soul in a young body or old vines in a new wine. It is also the epitome of the vintage itself – a triumph.

  • Wine Cellar Insider, April 2022, Score: 95-97

    Deep garnet with purple accents around the rim. Asian spice, cedar, tobacco leaf, cocoa, licorice, flowers and blackberries, with black cherry and light notes of espresso show up with ease on the nose. The wine is full-bodied, with incredible polish, plushness and supple textures, yet it remains classic in style and character. Balanced on the corners of freshness, length, character and complexity. This is not a Mouton Rothschild that is about concentration, flamboyance and power. Instead it is focused on its purity, energy and refined, silky tannins. It is also not a vintage that will demand decades to develop into maturity. It should be gorgeous to drink with perhaps a decade of age, and will evolve for at least 2-3 decades after that with ease. The wine blends 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc, 13.1% ABV. The harvest took place September 25, finishing October 6. Drink from 2030-2060.

  • Jane Anson, April 2022, Score: 95

    Jewel-ruby in colour, crystalline reflections. This is less exuberant than a usual Mouton, more of a classic Pauillac with intensity and depth through the palate. Plenty of grip and length, with rich layers of raspberry and blackberry fruits and curls of gunsmoke, liqourice and cocoa bean, giving hints of a more generous wine that should be released further over ageing. Focused and supple. 100% new oak. 3.73ph, 59IPT, 41hl/h yield. Harvest September 25 until October 6. The first vintage where it was Jean-Emmauel Danjoy from beginning to end, after Philippe Dhalluin's retiremement. 41% of overall production in Mouton. Strong candidate for an upscore in bottle.

Mouton Rothschild is the only wine to have been elevated to First Growth status since the original classification of the Medoc in 1855. The exceptional success and status of Chateau Mouton Rothschild can largely be attributed to one man: Baron Philippe de Rothschild. He recognised the extraordinary potential of the estate and devoted his life to ensuring that potential was realised. His work is now carried on by his charismatic daughter Baroness Philippine, ably assisted by Herve Berland. This most flamboyant and glamorous estate is famous for its artistic connections, embodied in the grand vins's label, redesigned each year by such legends as Picasso, Miro and Warhol. It is also renowned for its impeccably maintained visitor-friendly estate, but its impressive and well-deserved reputation is based above all on the opulence and excellence of its wines.Read less

Region

Pauillac

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
