A first growth since 1973, Château Mouton Rothschild is one of the world's greatest wines. Owned by Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, the only child of the legendary Baron Philippe, Château Mouton Rothschild has 84 hectares of vines in Pauillac. The terroir is outstanding, with well-drained soil and great sun exposure. The greatest care and attention are lavished on Mouton Rothschild at every step of the way, from the vine to the bottle, combining both age-old methods and state-of-the-art techniques. In 1853, Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild, acquired Château Brane-Mouton, which he renamed Mouton Rothschild. In 1922, his great-grandson, Baron Philippe de Rothschild, decided to take over management of the estate. He oversaw winemaking, leaving a strong mark on the estate and introducing many innovations. In 1926, he built the famous grand chai, one of the major attractions during a visit to Mouton. 1945 marked the beginning of a painting by a famous artist on the label of every vintage of Mouton. Inaugurated in 1962, a Museum of Wine in Art, displaying three millennia of works of art revolving around the theme of wines and vines, attracts thousands of visitors.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted from magnum and presented by Baron Philippe Sereys de Rothschild, the 1989 Château Mouton-Rothschild might not reach the ethereal heights of the 1982 or 1986, but it is certainly a lovely Claret. It has an attractive, slightly leafy bouquet armed with cedar and pencil lead. There is less fruit concentration than I expected, resolutely classic, slightly austere Bordeaux. The palate follows suit. What it lacks in substance it compensates with in balance and personality. This is an understated Mouton-Rothschild that is probably at its peak, although I envisage this offering another two decades of pleasure. Whilst this showing did not replicate some glorious bottles in the past, it remains a very fine Claret that may not be inclined to improve any further. Tasted February 2016.
