Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1971

4 /5

The key character of this property is Phillippe de Rothschild, who takes over from him in 1922 when he was 20, and leaves him to his death in 1988. The widowed by his first wife, murdered by the Nazis in a field concentration, marries Pauline Place, American cartoonist, which influenced the creation of the museum Mouton and her husband's passion for art. His daughter, the Baroness Phillippine, successfully continuing the work of his father.
Phillippe de Rothschild Bordeaux breaks with tradition and decided in 1924 to bottle their wines in the property, rather than do the merchants in the city of Bordeaux. Get the 1855 classification only once and Mouton, who started the first of the latter amounts to Premier Grand Cru Classé in 1973 is changed. Their motto speaks for itself in the way he is, "I am first, second was Mouton does not change. "
The consideration received by the vintage of this wine from Bordeaux (the "milléssime") in reds was considered as very good.
It is a wine to decant or not, since an excess of oxygen could be little benefit, for which otherwise would serve carefully tasting it straight from the bottle with a large glass Riedel Vinum Cabernet type.

4/5

History will remember the year 2013 an unstable and unpredictable weather. A cold and wet winter followed by a cool, rainy spring, causes a delay of the vegetative cycle and disrupts flowering.
In sharp contrast, July and August are particularly hot and sunny with significantly lower than average rainfall. heat peaks at 38 ° C cause of severe thunderstorms late July.
September remains in water deficit and favors a uniform ripeness of the berries. The Cabernets are promising. The grapes reached incredible sugar with good potential acidity.
The harvest of Mouton Rothschild is conducted in record time, from 30 September to 9 October, with outstanding staff assistance of Baron Philippe de Rothschild was asked to reinforce the troops pickers.
meticulously sorted, the berries are transported in crates gravity tanks of splendid winery Mouton Rothschild. Major innovation: through transparent staves tanks, technical teams were able to observe the evolution of winemaking in every detail. Quality is at the rendezvous, despite lower production.

The 2013 vintage is a beautiful deep red color with purple highlights. The nose is very complex, marked by aromas of black cherries, raspberries, blackberries, and opens the vent to spicy notes and subtle toasty. On the palate, the attack is fresh, with a nice freshness and richness, which extends over the nuances of vanilla and chocolate, all backed by extremely fine tannins. A beautiful farm structure also reveals a long finish with a profoundly aromatic intensity.

It is not easy to find in a supermarket.
Intense ruby tone. Strong smell of berries. Softer than 2016.
