TASTING NOTES

"This is a phenomenal, muscular red that shows incredible power and depth. Full-bodied and with great concentration of tannins but this remains agile and polished. The form to this is stupendous. Such precision and clarity. The new 1986 but better." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2016 Mouton-Rothschild is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, the latter two co-fermented, picked from 26 September and finished on 14 October. As usual, it is being matured in 100% new oak. It has a very intense bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, cold limestone and crushed violet aromas that if anything, appear to gain vigor with aeration in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, juicy tannin. There is a lot of fruit packed into this Mouton-Rothschild and therefore one can feel the weight in the mouth, yet the acidity keeps everything on tip-toes. The finish has superb precision and opulence, completing a Mouton-Rothschild that will rivet you to the spot. Tasted on two occasions, the second confirming that this is simply a magnificent wine. Whichever artist eventually designs the label is going to be drinking well." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #230

"An impressively dense blackberry and blackcurrant nose; rich, dense, fresh, finely tannic; its mere 13% or so notwithstanding, this is a wine of seemingly immense proportions, yet delicate and subtle impressions; very sweet-cored, and yet so fresh, too, very close-grained, with an abundance of beautifully defined sweet black fruit, all within a particularly polished tannin texture. This is wonderfully prolonged across the palate, mouth-coating, aromatic, enormously satisfying, with a finish full of sweet fruit and very subtle mineral aromas. A most complete, a great, and very grand Mouton, making the 2015 and 2016 a quite magnificent pair, and the ‘14 is no slouch! 2035–55+." Michael Schuster, The World of Fine Wine

"On first impression, the 2016 Mouton Rothschild is incredibly reminiscent of the 1986, especially in its aromatics. On the palate, the 2016 naturally reflects the more finessed personality of the year as well as 30 years of continual refinements in vineyard and cellar work. Graphite, grilled herbs, smoke, crème de cassis, bittersweet chocolate and ripe plums are some of the many flavors that flesh out in the glass in an utterly captivating, exquisite Mouton that I had to taste twice and then directly from barrel because of its pure allure. Although it is early, the 2016 Mouton is shaping up to be one of the wines of the vintage." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Exceptional crimson. Real lift and transparency. Quite a soaring dry style with great texture and refreshment. Very strong style statement. Infusion of Cabernet. A sort of amalgam of cassis and tar in that very Mouton way but with 21st-century lift and transparency. Quite brave in a way. Bone dry and utterly embryonic compared with most of the 2016s (with the notable exception of Las Cases)." JancisRobinson.com
