Château Mouton Rothschild is one of the most prestigious wine estates in the world. It is located in the Pauillac appellation of the Bordeaux region in France. The estate's flagship wine, known simply as Mouton Rothschild, is one of only five wines to hold the Premier Cru status, the highest ranking in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. However, unlike the other four, Mouton Rothschild was not originally classified as a First Growth and was only promoted in 1973 after decades of relentless effort from the owner, Baron Philippe de Rothschild.
The 2015 vintage of Mouton Rothschild is a red Bordeaux blend, mainly composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot also in the blend. This vintage is particularly noted for its exceptional quality, following a growing season that had perfect weather conditions, leading to an excellent harvest.
On the nose, the 2015 Mouton Rothschild is renowned for its intense aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, and plum, underlined by refined hints of spice, tobacco, and graphite. Some tasters might also detect subtle nuances of violets and dark chocolate.
The palate of the 2015 Mouton Rothschild is full-bodied and exquisitely balanced. The wine opens up with rich, opulent dark fruit flavors, complemented by complex notes of cedar, leather, and earth. Despite its depth and power, the wine also possesses a remarkable freshness and finesse. It is structured by high-quality, velvety tannins that lead to a long, persistent finish.
The 2015 Mouton Rothschild is also well-known for its excellent aging potential. While already expressive and enjoyable, the wine will continue to evolve and develop in the bottle over many years, potentially decades, further revealing the intricacies and nuances of its composition.
Each year, the estate invites a contemporary artist to design the label for its flagship wine. The 2015 Mouton Rothschild label features a vibrant piece of artwork by the renowned German artist Gerhard Richter.
Given its complexity and depth, Mouton Rothschild pairs well with a wide range of dishes, especially red meats, game, and mature cheeses.
It's worth noting that the experience of enjoying a wine like Mouton Rothschild is not only about the taste and aroma but also the history, tradition, and craftsmanship it embodies. It is considered one of the world's finest wines and a true icon of the Bordeaux region.
