1997 Baron Philippe de Rothschild Chateau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac

Wine Description

(From 1996 Vintage) Ruby-red. Deep aromas of cassis, roasted plum, animal fur and graphite. Velvety in texture but with a powerful underlying structure. Very strong on the back end, which features substantial tongue-dusting tannins and subtle finishing flavor.

Winemaker's Notes

Very good red-ruby color. Currant, cassis, roasted nuts, gunsmoke, chocolate and a note of surmaturite Fat, sweet and expansive, but with sound underlying structure. Lowish acids and a confit note contribute to the wine almost voluptuous texture.

Shipping Information

    (From 2005 Vintage) This is a presale offer! Full payment is required on all presales. Wine is due in Spring/Summer of 2008."A superb Mouton, the 2005 is composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and a dollop of Cabernet Franc. Under the new administrator, Philippe Dalhuin, the strictest selection of any recent vintage was instituted (64% of the production was used), and the 2005's 13.5% natural alcohol is one of the highest ever achieved at this estate.
