Elaboration of Château Mouton Rothschild Double Magnum 1996
Château Mouton Rothschild Double Magnum 1996 (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot)
This estate's staff believes that the 1996 Mouton-Rothschild is very complex. I agree that among the first-growths, this wine is showing surprising forwardness and complexity in its aromatics. It possesses an exuberant, flamboyant bouquet of roasted coffee, cassis, smoky oak, and soy sauce. The impressive 1996 Mouton-Rothschild offers impressive aromas of black currants, framboise, coffee, and new saddle leather. This full-bodied, ripe, rich, concentrated, superbly balanced wine is paradoxical in the sense that the aromatics suggest a far more evolved wine than the flavors reveal. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030. By the way, the 1996 blend consists of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 8% Cabernet Franc.

Reviews of Château Mouton Rothschild Double Magnum 1996
The Château Mouton Rothschild Double Magnum has a red cherry colour. You can really feel the vanilla smell. It was a surprising wine.
It's good, it can be recommended.
Cherry colour, as they all are. Strong smell of violets, it seemed odd. An oil-textured wine.
