Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2006, Pauillac

BDX043

Regular Price: £610.00

Special Price £550.00

Quick Overview

An exuberant vintage finds Mouton in fine form. Classic perfume of creme de cassis with a hint of mint, flowers, blueberries, and a suggestion of oak. Full-bodied and powerful with a lovely silky palate and opulent black fruit. The tannins melt into the rich, exotic and smoky fruit. Aged for long enough, there are nuances of flavours and textures waiting to unravel. Quality soared in the two years preceeding this vintage and 2006 justifies Mouton's first growth status with confidence. 87% Cabernet, 13% Merlot.

An exuberant vintage finds Mouton in fine form. Classic perfume of creme de cassis with a hint of mint, flowers, blueberries, and a suggestion of oak. Full-bodied and powerful with a lovely silky palate and opulent black fruit. The tannins melt into this rich, exotic and smoky fruit seductively. Aged for long enough, there are nuances of flavours and textures waiting to unravel. Quality soared in the two years preceeding this vintage and 2006 justifies Mouton's first growth status with glorious confidence. 87% Cabernet, 13% Merlot.

(Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (181), February 2009)

"A large-scaled, massive Mouton Rothschild that ranks as one of the top four or five wines of the vintage, it may turn out to be the longest-lived wine of the vintage by a landslide. This utterly profound Mouton will need to sleep for 15+ years before it will reveal any secondary nuances, but it is a packed and stacked first-growth Pauillac of enormous potential. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2060+.

Ever since owner Philippine de Rothschild put Philippe Dalhuin in charge at Mouton in 2004 there has been a dramatic reduction in the amount of wine produced under the Mouton Rothschild label. The selection process has been ratcheted up to the level of other first-growths, and that is reflected in what is clearly the greatest Mouton produced since 1982 and 1986. Only 44% of the crop made it into the 2006 grand vin, which is the lowest percentage in more than fifty years. The final blend includes a high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon (87%) and the rest Merlot (13%). No Cabernet Franc was utilized in 2006, and purchasers will have a long wait until this wine reaches full maturity. Keep in mind that, where well-stored, the 1986 currently tastes like a 4-5 year old wine, and the 1982 is just beginning to enter early adolescence. If you extrapolate from that, the 2006 will need at least twenty years to reach a teen-age status, and probably will not hit its plateau of maturity for three decades."
