As varietal mix, chateau Mouton Rothschild 2014 selected 81% of Cabernet sauvignon, 16 % of Merlot and 3 % of Cabernet franc. The colour is a deep red with a purplish tint. The refined and distinguished nose reveals very mature fruit aromas, pleasantly mingled with subtle spice and vanilla notes. The velvety attack fills the mouth with a mature and smooth body on silky, firm tannins which enfold a satin texture with a hint of minerality. The very long finish of this Pauillac displays a harmonious combination of complexity, opulence and freshness.
Château Mouton Rothschild 2014
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Mouton-Rothschild was closed at first when I tasted the wine in bottle with winemaker Philippe Dhalluin. But as it transpires, this First Growth is just toying with you. Initially quite understated, it responds to aeration like a young child peeking from around a corner and then running out, waving its hands. It suddenly hits you with gorgeous black cherries, bilberry, cedar and wilted rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied with a silky smooth entry. This is utterly seductive: a wine without a hair out of place. It is not as powerful or as complex as the 2015 Mouton-Rothschild, yet the precision and focus here is beguiling. It will require five to seven years to absorb the 100% new oak, then it will be an utterly delicious and to use a term employed at en primeur, cerebral First Growth that is destined to give two or three decades of pleasure.
