Chateau Mouton Rothschild, First Growth, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France, 2006 

"Lucian Freud label. Dark crimson. Refined, lifted, elegant nose with masses of polish. Sweet palate entry and very confident terroir-determined nose. Dry finish. Very appetising. Racy. Prescient in a way because this is the style of wine people are looking for now. Lead-pencil flavours. Dry tannins in the background. Food please! This will never be massive but the balance is great."

19/20 points, Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, March 2016

"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, January 2017
