Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

Its dark brick color with black highlights introduces a nose of blackcurrent jelly with a wooden, smoked, roasted, and zan hint. The palate is balanced, round, supple, headed and nervous with pleasant tannins.

Brick Red

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

The Baron Philippe de Rothschild had a deep impact on the wine industry. His ambitious initiative to review the prestigious 1855 classification was a success. Château Mouton Rothschild was successfully upgraded from a 2ème Grand Cru Classé to a 1er Grand Cru Classé. Only 3 modifications have ever been made to this worldly recognized classification since 1855.

Domain and appellation

  • Château Mouton Rothschild

    1er Grand Cru Classé since 1973, the Château Mouton Rothschild exists since the 18th century. Its history is shaped by an ancestral savoir-faire that was carried through generations and by a man, the Baron de Rothschild, who invested his time to give the domain its deserved prestige back.

     

    • Terroir: Spread across 84 hectares, the terroir benefits from a favorable environment and weather conditions. The vineyard is located on a deep gravelly soil at the intersection of the Atlantic ocean, the Gironde estuary, and the Landes wood.

     

    • Viticulture: The grapes are carefully hand-picked and placed in open small crates prior to be carried to the vat room.

     

    • Vinification: The incorporation of state-of-the-art technology comes to complement an ancestral savoir-faire. If each vintage is made of a unique blend, this grand vin sets apart with its renown blackcurrant aroma and the dominance of cabernet sauvignon.
