Mouton were always going to do well in 2009 with such abundance of exceptional fruit but what sets this apart from others is the savoury, herbal edge that brings a layer of complexity to the glass that only goes to complement the sweeter notes further. Long, fresh and expertly balanced.
Chateau Mouton Rothschild was one of the more consistent performers in the last 100 years, culminating half way through that period with its elevation to Premier Grand Cru Classé status.
Some of the older Moutons are still reasonably good value, particularly in the better years of the 1970s and 80s.
The blend is around 80% cabernet sauvignon and the rest mostly merlot, although the blend is subtely changed to suit each vintage.
The second wine of Chateau Mouton Rothschild is called Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild, there’s a third wine called Baron Nathaniel, and some nice marc.
