Mouton Rothschild: “First I am, second I was, I Mouton do not change”
If you are looking for exciting, rich and decadent red wines, look no further than Château Mouton Rothschild. Like the owner himself, Baron Philippe Rothschild, these wines are not shy and retiring, but rather flamboyant, extravagant, spicy, and full of personality and decadence. Rather than novices and casual drinkers, Mouton best fits hedonists and sensualists who enjoy every moment of their life to the fullest.
Mouton was the highest-rated of all the French wines in the famous 1976 “Judgment of Paris” blind tasting, and it’s nowadays considered not only one of the best Bordeaux wineries in France but indeed in the entire world.
How can we accurately describe the taste and exciting aromas of these bold, high-quality red wines? The vin de pays were best depicted by Ian D’Agata, one of the leading experts in Italian wine, as well as wines from Alsace, Bordeaux and Canada, who among other, said Mouton is “opulent, luscious and rich, multi-layered and complex… Rich and ripe but marvelously precise and light on its feet.”
The Château 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 Classé from the Bordeaux region has been the center of the wine business and technical innovations since the early 20th century. It’s unique winemaking process that focuses on preserving the integrity of the grape, and marries tradition with technology, continues to be an influence on winemaking processes around the world to the present day.
