Sokolin 1992 Mouton Rothschild Tasting Notes:

France is the most prominent world stage where wines beyond compare are born. Only the most legendary among them get to play the protagonist. When Mouton Rothschild wines step on the scene, other wines can only bow down and accept their supporting roles.

Is it possible for a wine to have such spectacular aging potential? Mouton Rothschild wines dominate in this aspect and you're never really sure if you should be patient and postpone the pleasure or just gift yourself with the delicacy immediately. Whatever you choose, you won't go wrong. The fact that this bottle originates from Pauillac speaks for itself - you know very well that you're in for some fireworks as soon as you get that cork out.

The rollercoaster begins with the powerful bouquet, announced by the lovely red color intertwined with some orange shades. You'll feel some minty hints, slide to elegant tobacco, go through some hummus and leather, and finally end up bathing your nose in some sweet cassis, berries, and nuts.

The vintage might have been difficult, but this bottle won't give that away. It's a five-star delight and it stands alone when it comes to the richness on the palate you'll have a chance to experience. Harmoniously integrated tannins make it soft and velvety and leave just enough room for magnificent plum, cedar, cassis, and even more succulent berries to show off and make you fall in love with this beauty.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Mouton: Chateau Mouton Rothschild is the only one of the first growths to have remained in the ownership of the same family since the classification. The wines were best depicted by Ian D'Agata, one of the leading experts in Italian wine, among others, said Mouton is "opulent, luscious and rich, multi-layered and complex… Rich and ripe but marvelously precise and light on its feet." The Chateau Mouton Rothschild estate includes 205 acres of vines at Pauillac planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (77%), Merlot (11%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Petit Verdot (2%), and it has been used for cultivating vineyards since the early middle ages. The Premier Cru Classe from the Bordeaux region has been the center of the wine business and technical innovations since the early 20th century.
Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux Red: Picture in your mind a combination of cedar, lead pencil, blackcurrant, plum and mineral aromatics, and texture that caresses your palate like a playful lover. The experience is thrilling from the first whiff to the final seconds of a tannic, generous finish - that is what you'll get from a Bordeaux Red
Varietal Bordeaux Blend: Since its birth in France, the art of Bordeaux-inspired blends has been brought to regions like California, and Washington, where New World visionaries add their own unique spin to the formula, creating mouth-watering tributes to Bordeaux's viticultural greatness. Today, with a compelling cultural mixture, sampling Bordeaux blends is more excited than ever.
