Mouton Rothschild 2007 - Pauillac
92 RP Points
Label: Stained and Torn
Overall condition: Very good
Are you looking for an anthology wine? Mouton Rothschild's reputation is well established. This estate is a premier grand cru that only a few Bordeaux Châteaux have the honor to wear, such as Château Margaux, Latour, Lafite or even Haut-Brion.
Every year since 1945, the label has been illustrated by a famous artist (Miro, Picasso or Chagall for example)
In 2007, Bernard Venet was chosen to illustrate the label of the famous house.
Find below the tasting notes of the Château:
The color is an intense garnet with brilliant reflections.
The Cabernet Sauvignon expresses all its depth and finesse here with aromas of vanilla, bitter almond, nutmeg but also, with airing, subtle mineral notes.
Very supple on the palate, this Mouton Rothschild presents a perfect harmony on a linear structure which associates structured tannins with a pleasant minty freshness. The finish is complex and ends with spicy notes and very ripe fruit.
A great success for this vintage, where the blend takes advantage of the best of the two grape varieties at full maturity: the body and complexity of Cabernet and the aromatic depth of Merlot.
