This powerful, tannic, structured effort from Mouton-Rothschild’s stable is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by an earthy nose dominated by black currants and toasty, smoky oak. Medium to full-bodied with relatively high tannin, decent acidity, and a fine finish, it should be at its best between 2014-2030.
Dark, narrow rimmed red; fresh, sweet, cedary early bouquet; very nicely balanced, rich, vital, middleweight claret with a fine textured tannin; vivid red fruit flavour, nice length to taste, juicy, sweet, spicy, long and satisfying. Not grand, but very good in a traditional, well defined, gently muscular Pauillac style. Good value. 2017-27+
