Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1er Cru

Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1er Cru

Lobenberg 95

Lobenberg: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc. Trotz des hohen Cabernet-Anteils eine nicht nur von Cassis und Johannisbeere geprägte Nase, sondern auch deutlich schwarze Früchte wie Kirsche. Weich, angenehm. Ohne die totale Größe, aber harmonisch passend und überaus angenehm. Auch im Mund ist er ein wirklich sehr feiner, leckerer Wein. Aber als 1er Cru in dem Preisbereich? Trotzdem beachtlich schöner Wein. 93-95/100

-- Parker: The intensely ripe Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the plateau at Mouton has produced an inky/purple-colored wine with the famous Mouton creme de cassis and floral characteristics vividly displayed. For the first time in a number of years they appear to have outdistanced their cross street rival, the biodynamically farmed Chateau Pontet Canet of Alfred Tesseron. Wonderfully sweet tannins envelop the enormous fruit and extravagant richness of this full-bodied Mouton Rothschild. With profound density as well as surprisingly sweet tannin, this terrific effort will probably shut down slightly and require 5-8 years of cellaring after bottling. It appears to have 30 or more years of aging potential, making it potentially one of the 3 or 4 longest-lived wines of the vintage.95-97/100

-- Suckling: What a nose of blackberries, blackcurrants, minerals and graphite. Full-bodied, extremely fine and polished. Sexy and ethereal. Harmony. A little salty. Fabulous 2012. Pure silk. Better after 2020 but so wonderful now. 97/100

-- Gerstl: Eine geballte Ladung schwarze Frucht springt regelrecht aus dem Glas, herrlich würzig, tiefgründig, mit den raffinierten Noten von Leder, Tabak und schwarzen Trüffeln, ein genialer Hauch Cabernet-Würze. Schlanker, eleganter zartschmelzender Gaumen, eine köstliche Mouton-Delikatesse, burgundisch fein, bei dieser Feinheit geradezu sensationell aromatisch, ein Traumwein.19/20 -- NM: Tasted twice en primeur at Mouton-Rothschild. A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc and 8% Merlot harvested from 1st October and finished on 15th October, with the best Cabernet Sauvignon picked between 8th and 12th October. This is the first vintage in the new facility – now there are 56 instead of 28 vats to make the selection. We can vinify plots that have never been vinified in isolation before. It has a very "classic” Mouton bouquet with small black cherries, blackberry, graphite and hints of vanilla lending it sweetness. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine, quite supple tannins. It is a very "correct” Mouton, without the flamboyance of the 2009 or 2010, but showing a little more delineation on the finish compared to the 2011. The aftertaste is long in the mouth with fine minerality – here we find the class and sophistication. This is an impressive, "stately” Mouton.93-95/100 -- JS: Wonderful beauty to this wine with currants, blackberries and flowers. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a long, long finish. Creamy texture with a minerally, almost salty undertone to the wine. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc.94-95/100 -- WE: Barrel sample. This powerful, impressive wine is comprised of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon. It's seriously structured, with loads of black currants and dark tannin, and revels on the finish with the juicy, fresh acidity of this vintage. A fine Mouton, this is the first vintage produced in the chateau’s new cellar.97/100 -- WS: This has a stunningly pure core of plum, black currant and black cherry fruit, with supple yet long structure that has melded wonderfully already. Anise, violet and cassis notes pour in on the finish. The fruit makes it seem almost too easy, but this will cellar well thanks to outstanding balance. A huge but very stylish wine. 95/100 -- TA: As it often is, this is the richest and showiest of the first growths at this early stage. Made in the château’s new chai for the first time, giving Mouton the ability to vinify "microplots”, this is a rich, plush Pauillac that’s built to last, with lots of aromatic blackberry fruit, sweet oak and a powerful, satisfying finish. Much more concentrated than Lafite and Latour, with riper fruit flavours. 95/100 -- Vinum: Weil der Preis nicht die exzessive Höhe erreicht und die Qualität stimmt, ist dieser besonders temperamentvolle Mouton ein guter Kauf: von ausgesprochener Rasse, dicht und vollmundig, mit fast schon pfeffrigem, langem Finale. 18/20
