The freshness and complexity of a fantastic Second Vin by Château Mouton Rothschild

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
Located north-west of Bordeaux, in the Médoc, the Château Mouton Rothschild vineyard covers 90 hectares. 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
After a milder-than-average winter and a cool spring, June was marked by heavy precipitation. It was in July that summer made its great appearance with high temperatures and some precipitation, which prevented the vines from suffering too much water stress. At Château Mouton Rothschild, the 2019 harvest began on September 5 with white grape varieties. The harvest continued on September 18 with the red grape varieties and ended on October 5. The 2019 harvest was very generous, both in terms of quantity and quality. From the outset, 2019 promised to be a fantastic vintage, yielding grapes that were rich in colour, with high degrees of alcohol and a very fine tannic structure.

The blend
Cabernet sauvignon (68%), merlot (32%).

The tasting
Tasted en primeur, the Mouton Rothschild Le Petit Mouton 2019 displays an intense red colour, shimmering with purple reflections. From the first moments of the tasting, the aromatic bouquet promises great complexity. Notes of black berries and delicious chocolate aromas are followed by delicate hints of roasted aromas. On the palate, the wine impresses with its freshness and tasty texture, with notes of red fruit and toast. This superb Second Wine from Château Mouton Rothschild has a deliciously silky and crunchy tannic structure, further enhanced by fresh liquorice notes, lingering long on the finish.
