Elaboration of Château Mouton Rothschild Imperial 1996

Château Mouton Rothschild Imperial 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.

Dominating scent of red currant. Château Mouton Rothschild Imperial was ok, the kind of my taste.
A wine to enjoy without any pretensions.

4/5

A very successful cherry colour. Aromas of red fruit jelly, with notes of green pepper. I think it was a little bit salty.
Good complement to a special meat.
Brought by a friend and I opened it with him.
