The 2015 Mouton Rothschild is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% new oak with a mid-July 2017 bottling. Deep garnet-purple colored, this Mouton pulls off an incredibly impactful entrance, emerging from the glass with profound notes of blackberry preserves, plum pudding, crème de cassis and grilled meats, featuring perfectly accessorized accents of sandalwood, cinnamon stick and fenugreek with wafts of dried roses, unsmoked cigars and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely packed with rich, ripe black fruits sparked with blue and red fruit undertones and an incredible structure of very firm, very ripe tannins, with seamless freshness and an epically long, earth-laced finish. Possessing striking natural beauty framed by impeccable crafting, this 2015 is a total diva and well worth attention. Give it a good 7-8 years in bottle, at least, and drink it over the next 30+ years.

This wine is generous without being opulent. It has a straight line of bright acidity that shoots through the wine giving it a fresh character. At the same time, the Cabernet that dominates the blend offers some serious firm tannins. It is a wine that starts with fruit and will give fine fruit for many years to come.

Offers a prodigious core of steeped fig, black currant and blackberry compote flavors, enmeshed with notes of smoldering tobacco, charcoal and licorice. Broad, deep and long, with a deep foundation of graphite through the finish. Despite the heft, this manages to show off some purity too. Best from 2025 through 2045.

Admirable couleur, très grand nez complexe où pointe le cassis, majestueux, mais ayant conservé une tension et une fraîcheur uniques à Pauillac dans ce millésime et texture magique, elle aussi. Un peu plus de merlot (16 %) que dans les millésimes précédents, ce qui donne au toucher de bouche un caractère plus méridional, avant un retour de tannin magnifique et ultra typé Pauillac. Il fera une très grande bouteille dans 25 à 30 ans.

Description

The Château Mouton Rothschild has 84 hectares of vines in the north-west of Bordeaux, on the edge of the Medoc peninsula itself, as its name indicates, in medio aquae, caught in between the waters: in the East the estuary of the Gironde, in the West the Atlantic Ocean. The Médoc vineyard, which dates back to Roman times, currently has an area of approximately 16,500 hectares. It is planted on a narrow strip of land that mesures 80 km long and 5 to 10km wide, close to the river which irrigates it in depth and moderates the differences in temperature. Backed by the northern tip of the Landes forest, it enjoys the mild ocean climate while being protected from its excesses. 

Make Mouton a world of art and beauty: the ambition is there, everywhere visible.

As early as the year 1924, Baron Philippe wanted to assert the role and the responsibility of the owners of great wines in the face of the omnipotence of the Bordeaux wine trade, practicing the integral bottling at the château - whereas the wine had until then been delivered in barrels to traders. This decision, which was soon adapted by every other Château, required increased storage capacity on the spot and was therefore at the origin of the construction in 1926, the spectacular "Grand Chai" Mouton, designed by the architect Charles Siclis.


In the cellars

The new Mouton Rothschild vat started an ambitious stage in the history of the estate. Adding high technical quality to their vats, it remains faithful at the same time to the architectural style and building materials of the Medoc. About seventy meters long, it was built on two levels connected by elegant metal pillars. It harmoniously combines wood and steel, while conforming to the forty- four traditional "moutonesque" oak vats, to which are added twenty stainless steel vats. The gravity vat of high technical quality starts a new era in the history of Mouton.

It is 100 meters long and 25 meters wide, this avant-garde building can house up to 1000 oak barrels, aligned on one level. It immediately captures the visitors attention with its architectural splendor. "An avant-garde building, the Grand Chai immediately captures the visitor with its architectural splendor." The internal temperature is natural: the Grand Chai, oriented North-South, is equipped with small windows allowing fresh air to enter, to accelerate the precipitation of suspended sediments in the wine. After six months in this Chai said "first year", the barrels are lowered in the second year Chai, where the wine is still stored for one year before being bottled.

Pauillac

The Pauillac appellation is located on the left bank of the Gironde and brings together exceptional climatic and geological conditions, which allows it to produce very great wines. Capital of the Médoc viticole, the port city of Pauillac gave its name to the appellation. The AOC can boast of having three wines in the first five classified growths of 1855: Lafite Rothschild, Latour and Mouton Rothschild. On its 1,200 ha of vines, Pauillac produces 54,000 hl of red wines each year. Note that Mouton-Rothschild also produces a white wine.
Pauillac is a jewel of the Médoc, it indeed has 18 classified growths which represent 85% of its production. Perched on a beautiful rump of gravels, its terroir is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon assembled with Merlot and to a lesser extent with Petit Verdot and Malbec.
