Description of Château Mouton Rothschild 1987

Château Mouton Rothschild 1987 (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot)

The wine has an attractive, dark red color shading to orange at the rim and a nose that displays fine humus and leather aromas mingled with forward blackberry fruit, liquorice and black cherry.

Round and elegant on the palate, without being particularly powerful, it combines notes of torrefaction, vanilla, caramel and coffee with a very gentle, perfectly integrated tannic structure.

Harmonious, fresh and pleasantly long, the finish asserts itself with character and definite charm in a vintage generally reckoned to be not easy.

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.
