Occasional Wine Note:  In 1973, Château Mouton Rothschild became the last of the Chateau to make the "1st growth" list of the Classification of 1855. The others of course being Lafite Rothschild, Latour, Haut-Brion, and Margaux. The 19th Century slight lent to the quote: "First, I cannot be. Second, I do not deign to be. Mouton I am," which then changed in 1973 to: "First, I am. Second, I used to be. Mouton does not change.." in the end, the wine has always been highly sought after. Of the 5, Château Mouton Rothschild is said to produce the most opulent and richest of wines. This 2019 offering absolutely hits that mark. This is a powerful Cabernet with loads of ripe dark fruit enveloped in tobacco, licorice, spice, and big tannin. It will be another decade before this one really starts to strut its considerable stuff.

    This is incredibly complex, with all the cabernet descriptors, from mint and lead pencil to blackberry, blackcurrant and menthol. It changes all the time in the glass, just as in the nose. Yet, it remains cool and classy. Full-bodied with very fine, tight tannins that run the length of the wine, carrying on and on and on. Well-framed and compact wine. Never-ending procession of currant, berry and black cherry fruit, together with licorice, earth and just a hint of black truffle. 90% cabernet sauvignon, 9% merlot and 1% petit verdot.

    The 2019 Mouton Rothschild is the most dramatic of the Médoc first growths, soaring from the glass with aromas of cassis, blackberries and violets mingled with rich aromas of cedar, cigar wrapper, licorice, loamy soil and spices. Full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's deep and powerful, with huge levels of concentration and an ineffably complete, seamless profile, concluding with a long, resonant finish. Plenty of ripe tannin is hidden by its ample core of fruit, and despite its youthful polish, this will require plenty of bottle age to realize all its potential. This blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot tastes in many respects like the 2016 Mouton's more sun-kissed cousin. Best After 2035
