The Majesty of a Complex and Refined Pauillac

A legendary First Growth of Pauillac, Château Mouton Rothschild is part of the exclusive circle of Bordeaux’s greatest estates, whose wines are sought after by many fans all around the world.

More spectacular than ever, Château Mouton Rothschild continues to write its legend, masterfully orchestrated by Philippe Sereys de Rothschild since the death of his mother, the late Baroness Philippine de Rothschild, who worked with passion and commitment to elevate the Cru to the very top of the world of wine.

Product of an atypical vintage full of contrasts, Château Mouton Rothschild 2017 triumphs yet again as one of the top Crus of the Pauillac appellation. The property did see some damage from the April frost on two parcels, whose fruit entered the blend of the Aile d’Argent. Nevertheless, the vines planted on the superb gravel outcrop soils of Mouton were spared. The vegetative cycle of the vine continued under ideal conditions, with dry weather favouring the production of small berries concentrated in sugars, filled with anthocyanins and displaying a great aromatic freshness. A 2017 vintage full of promise...

In line with the great 2015 and 2016, the 2017 vintage will help build the legend of Mouton.

Dark and dense, the Château Mouton Rothschild 2017 shines brilliantly in its colourful dress, with delicate garnet reflections. Dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (90%), the blend expresses all the purity and typical qualities of this emblematic black grape of the Left Bank, complemented by Merlot (9%) and Petit Verdot (1%). At the height of elegance and refinement, the nose reveals it to be quite noble, mixing pure aromas of wild black fruits and cassis. Swirling allows the wine to express the full scale of its personality, revealing spicy and peppery notes, polished by delicate dried flower fragrance. The sumptuous attack leads to a palate of intense aromatic freshness, offering tasty fruity notes. Maintaining this vibrant tension, the mid-palate is structured with polished tannins and a deliciously creamy texture. With class and distinction, the Château Mouton Rothschild 2017 stretches forth into a long and balanced finish, leaving behind it the feeling of a perfectly executed Pauillac. A radiant and majestic Mouton indeed.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2017 Mouton Rothschild has one of the highest percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon ever at 90%, with 9% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. Very deep purple-black in color, the nose is already singing of crushed black currants, warm blackberries and chocolate-covered cherries with hints of violets, star anise, cinnamon stick and cloves plus wafts of pencil lead and unsmoked cigars. Medium-bodied, wonderfully delicate yet intense in the mouth (gaining some richness in the mid-palate on my second taste two and a half weeks later), it has super fine-grained, smooth tannins and incredible freshness, finishing very long with tons of tightly wound layers. Wow. This vintage is going to be very long-lived in the cellar!
