1997 Baron Philippe de Rothschild Chateau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac

Wine Description

(From 1982 Vintage) This has always been one of the wines of the vintage. Harmonious and beautifully structured. Brilliant ruby color, with a hint of garnet. A bounty of cherry, tobacco and cedar aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and tannic, with velvety texture and medium finish.

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 1966 Vintage) Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Deep red; sweetish dense nose, not very expressive but very Cabernet in its aromas; austere, firm, still tannic, plenty of fruit, still backward but will it come round?; quite good length.
