Mouton-Rothschild Bordeaux Blend

Mouton-Rothschild Bordeaux Blend

Bordeaux Blend from Pauillac

Vintage: 2008
Description: We 96 Wine Enthusiast, April 2011 A rich wine opulent in character. There is power here with richness of fruit and texture. It is both serious side and exuberant with its bursting black berry fruits. R.v. Dc 96 Decanter, January 2018 Another hit, although this is not as glamorous as some vintages of Mouton.

Another hit, although this is not as glamorous as some vintages of Mouton. The expression here is just a little more Pauillac, rather than Mouton. Layers of blackberry and grilled almonds are marked by a touch of austerity in the Cabernet which I almost never find in this wine. It remains a beautiful Mouton in a vintage where you don't always get this level of texture and expression. It's still young - we are actually nowhere near lift off yet.

The 2008 Mouton Rothschild checks in as a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot brought up in mostly new barrels. Undeniably one of the top wines in the vintage, it offers a rare opulence and sexiness in its awesome bouquet of crème de cassis, Asian spices, chocolate, and crushed flowers. Deep, full-bodied, powerful, and still young, it fills the mouth with fruit, has sweet tannin, and a great finish. It's still ruby/plum-colored, with no signs of evolution, but is far from unapproachable and is drinking incredibly well today. It will keep for another two decades.

Truffles, wet earth, tobacco wrapper, forest floor and leafy notes add to the nuances. Full bodied, firm, tannic and classically styled, the wine is still austere. There is plenty of fruit buried below the wall of tannins, but you will need time for the tannins to subside. This will take at least 10-15 more years before it is civilized.

Yes I did score the Grand Vin a solitary point above the Grand Vin under blind conditions but hey that's how it goes. That should not detract from what is a superb Mouton. Tasted ex-château and single blind in Southwold. Yes I did score the Grand Vin a solitary point above the Grand Vin under blind conditions but hey that's how it goes. That should not detract from what is a superb Mouton. It is has a very intense nose with blackberry wild strawberry cedar and graphite gregarious and vivacious. The palate is medium-bodied with firm grip a lot of substance here with a keen thread of acidity. Multi-layered fanning out marvellously on the fleshy crisp finish this Mouton should leave that upstart "Le Petit Mouton" behind once it has a few laps on the odometer. Tasted January 2012. Wa 95 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2017 Tasted at the Mouton-Rothschild vertical in London, the 2008 Mouton Rothschild has always been in the shadow of the ensuing couple of vintages, but I was not the only person at this tasting that commented upon the class. Tasted at the Mouton-Rothschild vertical in London, the 2008 Mouton Rothschild has always been in the shadow of the ensuing couple of vintages, but I was not the only person at this tasting that commented upon the class in show here. It replicated previous showings: cedar and graphite present and correct, though accompanied by something a little more exotic - eucalyptus maybe? The palate is beautifully balanced, very detailed and extremely fresh. This conveys so much energy and animation before reverting towards a more classic and structured, pencil lead finish. Those in the know will stash up on the 2008 Mouton Rothschild because it is destined to turn into one of the "dark horses" of the decade. Tasted May 2016. - Neal Martin JS 94 jamessuckling.com, November 2015 Aromas of roasted fruit plus hints of grilled meat and chocolate. Full body, firm and chewy tannins and bright acidity. Tangy and lively. Needs time still to come together to soften the tannins. A little hard. Better in 2018. Ws 92 Wine Spectator, January 2017 This shows the cool, leafy profile of the vintage, with fresh tobacco and bay notes standing out, while the core of plum and blackberry fruit continues to fill in behind them. Shows wet earth and singed alder elements. This shows the cool, leafy profile of the vintage, with fresh tobacco and bay notes standing out, while the core of plum and blackberry fruit continues to fill in behind them. Shows wet earth and singed alder elements through the finish. This has nearly dropped its angular feel and is developing well, with just a slight twinge of crisp acidity on the finish.--Non-blind Mouton-Rothschild vertical (March 2017). Drink now through 2036. – Jm Jr 91 Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, March 2018 (17.5/20) Tasted blind. Particularly dark crimson. Quite dramatic. Well balanced but a bit cool and lacking intensity – but it's long and well balanced. I want to drink this! Very fresh.
