Reviews of Château Mouton Rothschild Double Magnum 2008
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.
