Château Mouton Rothschild 1'eme Cru Classe Pauillac, Bordeaux, France, 2006

Grapes: A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon & 13% Merlot, 84ha vineyard on deep gravel soil with vines averaging 44 years of age, hand harvested, 18 months' ageing in new French oak barrels

Producer Tasting Note:

The wine is an attractive, intense and dark cherry red. With Cabernet Sauvignon predominant, the blend of Château Mouton Rothschild 2006 expresses a complex and intense array of aromas, combining fruit (bilberry) and milky notes with the toasted aromas (blond tobacco, incense, toasted hazelnut) of judicious oak. The precise and harmonious attack is prolonged by fresh and crisp, richly flavoured tannins, while the palate is full, creamy and powerful. Château Mouton Rothschild 2006 is in the line of the great classics produced by the estate.

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"Tasted at the Mouton-Rothschild vertical in London, the 2006 Mouton-Rothschild was really the wine that put winemaker Philippe Dhalluin on the map, in the sense that unlike the 2005 born in a great vintage, this 2006 had to transcend it. It remains one of the standouts of the growing season and actually replicates previous showings just the week earlier and in January. As expected, the nose has quite brilliant delineation with blackberry, graphite, here an almost cold slate-like scent. The palate is harmonious with the carefully judged acidity, fine-grain tannin and immense detail on the finish. Recent bottles suggest that it may close up for several years, in which case, either enjoy this in the next few months or cellar this for a few years and receive vinous dividends down the line. Tasted May 2016."

96/100 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, May 2016 

"Firm, classic, and still stoic, the wine is powerful, concentrated, long, full-bodied, and tannic, but it is also stubbornly young, hanging on to its structured side, so if you own any, you will need to have plenty of patience."

95/100 points, Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider, December 2022 (Drink from 2030-2070)
