The splendour of a Pauillac wine, the portrait of utter refinement

The estate

In 1853, Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild acquired Château Brane-Mouton at an auction. Located in the heart of the Médoc, in Pauillac, he renamed the estate Château Mouton Rothschild. In 1924, Baron Philippe de Rothschild took over the running of the estate. A true pioneer, he decided to start bottling directly on the estate and designed the label of the wine. 1973 marked the year when Château Mouton Rothschild became a Premier Cru Classé. Iconic in the Pauillac appellation, Château Mouton Rothschild has made fine Bordeaux wines shine throughout the world.

The vineyard

Situated to the north-west of Bordeaux, in the Médoc, Château Mouton Rothschild’s vineyard spreads across 90 hectares. The vines are planted on gravelly soils that retain the heat and release it during the night, thus favouring the ripening of the grapes. These poor, draining soils rest on a clay-gravel subsoil, giving this fine Pauillac wine a unique powerful, elegant and tannic structure.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (88%)

Merlot (12%)

Château Mouton Rothschild 2009: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

Deep, dark, almost black in colour, with purple highlights.

Nose

Complex and aromatic, the nose combines fruity (blueberry, blackcurrant) and spicy aromas with notes of cedar and light tobacco.

Palate

Dense and delicate, the palate exudes fruity notes which harmoniously knit together with round tannins. Structured and well-balanced, the palate stretches its aromatic palette to a very long finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Mouton Rothschild gives up bold earthy notions of underbrush, tilled soil and fungi over a core of crème de cassis, plum preserves and Indian spices with a waft of camphor. Full-bodied with a firm, velvety tannin texture and packed with black fruit preserves and exotic spice layers, it has seamless freshness and a very long, decadently fruited finish.
