Mouton Rothschild is one of the five First Growth estates in Bordeaux, and is consistently a top flight wine sought-after by collectors. Planted to 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc with very old vines averaging about 50 years, Mouton tends to be an opulent, rich, deep and almost exotic wine. Robert Parker raves, 'There is no question that some of the greatest bottles of Bordeaux I have ever drunk have been Moutons.'

Wine AdvocateThis wine remains one of the legends of Bordeaux. It has thrown off the backward, youthful style that existed during its first 25 years of life, and over the last 4-5 years has developed such secondary nuances as cedar and spice box. The creme de cassis, underlying floral note, full-bodied power, extraordinary purity, multilayered texture, and finish of over a minute are a showcase for what this Chateau accomplished in 1982. The wine is still amazingly youthful, vibrant, and pure. It appears capable of remaining fruity and vibrant in 2082! Thank God it is beginning to budge, as I would like to drink most of my supply before I kick the bucket. This is a great, still youthful wine, and, on occasion, one does understand the hierarchy of Bordeaux chateaux when you see the complexity and brilliance of this first-growth. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2050+.

Wine SpectatorGlorious aromas. Dark ruby red. Wonderful perfumes of flowers, berry and lilac. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long and pretty finish. Balanced. Class in a glass. Just as I remember.--Bordeaux retrospective.
