Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1er Cru 2015


Lobenberg: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc. Dichte Schwarzkirschnase, etwas Cassis und Maulbeere darunter. Für Mouton sehr fein, gutes Volumen zeigend, auch gute Wucht und trotzdem ein Teppich aus feiner geschliffener Frucht. Der Mund ist mehr lecker als delikat, wunderschön poliert, die Tannine sind rund, der Wein zeigt trotzdem Grip. Immer wieder diese wunderschöne kirschige Mitte zeigend. Ich habe Mouton selten so lecker probiert, das ist dieses Jahr mehr eine feinere Version des d’Armailhac als des Clerc Milon Rothschild und eine große Köstlichkeit. Es ist aber kein großer Wein. Er hat eher weniger gute Chancen gegen die Nachbarn Pontet Canet, Pichon Lalande oder Latour. Trotzdem macht er wirklich viel Freude. In diesem Jahrgang hat der deutsche Künstler Gerhard Richter das Etikett gemalt. Vielleicht die günstigste Variante, sich einen echten Richter ins Haus zu holen? 99/100


Suckling über: Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1er Cru

-- Suckling: Decadent and rich aromas of black cherries and plums with wet earth and sandalwood. Turns to dried mushrooms. Full-bodied, tight and closed with big, polished tannins, yet this is very closed and shy right now. Despite this, underneath it shows such depth and beauty. Tangy acidity. This is a combination of 2005 and 2009. Try it in 2024. 99/100


Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1er Cru

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The crème de la crème from the northern Médoc is the 2015 Mouton Rothschild and this incredible wine flirts with perfection. Made from 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot, this inky purple-colored effort offers sensational Cabernet flare in its crème de cassis, graphite, lead pencil shavings, floral, and Asian spice aromas and flavors. It is full-bodied, dense, and incredibly concentrated, yet still has the sexy, opulent, seductive style of the vintage front and center. It will be a candidate for perfection in 10-12 years and is going to be one of the longest-lived wines in the vintage. Hats off to Philippe Dhalluim and his team for this incredible effort that’s a step up over just about every other northern Médoc out there! 99/100


Parker über: Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1er Cru

-- Parker: The 2015 Mouton Rothschild is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% new oak with a mid-July 2017 bottling. Deep garnet-purple colored, this Mouton pulls off an incredibly impactful entrance, emerging from the glass with profound notes of blackberry preserves, plum pudding, crème de cassis and grilled meats, featuring perfectly accessorized accents of sandalwood, cinnamon stick and fenugreek with wafts of dried roses, unsmoked cigars and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely packed with rich, ripe black fruits sparked with blue and red fruit undertones and an incredible structure of very firm, very ripe tannins, with seamless freshness and an epically long, earth-laced finish. Possessing striking natural beauty framed by impeccable crafting, this 2015 is a total diva and well worth attention. Give it a good 7-8 years in bottle, at least, and drink it over the next 30+ years. 98/100


Neal Martin über: Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1er Cru

-- Neal Martin: The 2015 Mouton-Rothschild is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc matured entirely in new oak, as usual. This represents a relatively high percentage of Merlot simply because, as winemaker Philippe Dhalluin told me, that quality was so good. I afforded my sample four to five minutes to open as it was a little reduced at first, but eventually it reveals a gorgeous, extraordinarily intense bouquet of blackberry, cassis, incense and cold slate aromas. In some ways it reminds me of Latour as much as Mouton Rothschild. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, perfectly pitched acidity, wonderful tension and impressive length. There is a strong graphite theme running through from start to finish that is little grainy and so it will require preferably a decade in cellar. But what freshness and panache here, a classic Mouton-Rothschild that will live for 50 or 60 years, not a million miles away from say, the 1986 or 2010. Expect this to settle at the top of my banded score once in bottle. 97-99/100
