Description

A seductively rich and well-balanced Pauillac Premier Cru Classé

The estate

It was in 1853 that Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild acquired Château Brane-Mouton at auction. Located in the heart of the Médoc, in the appellation of Pauillac, the estate was renamed Château Mouton Rothschild. In 1924, Baron Philippe de Rothschild took over the reins of the property. A visionary, he decided to initiate bottling directly at the estate and also designed a label for the wine. In 1973 Château Mouton Rothschild became a First Classified Growth. An icon of the Pauillac appellation, Château Mouton Rothschild has produced magnificent Bordeaux wines, known by wine lovers around the world.

The vineyard

Château Mouton Rothschild produces Pauillac wines from a 90-hectare vineyard, located to the north-west of Bordeaux in the Médoc region. The vines are planted in stony, gravelly soils that capture the heat and restore it during the night, thus helping the grapes ripen. These poor, well-drained soils are lain over clay-gravelly subsoils, lending the wines of Château Mouton Rothschild a certain power, elegance and a tannic structure.

The vintage

The year 2015 was particularly dry from February to July, i.e. from budburst to veraison, which had an impact on the size of the grapes. The significant rainfall recorded in August and September was beneficial for the vineyard, which had already been affected by water stress, and ensured an optimal ripening of the grapes. In order to harvest the grapes at perfect maturity, the harvest was exceptionally long, from 14 September to 2 October 2015.

The blend

Château Mouton Rothschild 2015 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (82%), Merlot (16%) and Cabernet Franc (2%).

Château Mouton Rothschild 2015: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

A beautiful dark colour with subtle purple highlights.

Nose

The fine, elegant and complex nose blends fruity (wild blackberry, blueberry), toasted and fresh liquorice fragrances with notes of light tobacco.

Palate

The ample and beautifully fresh attack harmoniously blends intensity and salinity. The palate is seduced by this wine’s creamy tannins, its enfolding structure and its flavoursome minerality. The palate reveals rich fruity and spicy aromas. The finish is persistent and beautifully balanced. Fleshy and opulent, the 2015 Mouton Rothschild wine resonates with another legendary vintage, the 2005 vintage.
