Description :

The 2006 Mouton Rothschild exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a classic Mouton perfume of creme de cassis, flowers, blueberries, and only a hint of oak. The full-bodied, powerful 2006 possesses extraordinary purity and clarity. A large-scaled, massive Mouton Rothschild that ranks as one of the top five wine of the vintage

Château Mouton Rothschild

Château Mouton Rothschild Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac  

The Mouton vineyards incorporate 75 hectares of typical gravelly soil over a base of sand, clay, marl and limestone. They are situated on a mound or motte approximately at an altitude of 40m, dizzying heights for the flat and undulating land of the Medoc.

It is widely thought that motte is the origin of the name Mouton, the local Bordeaux dialect seemingly includes as many words for mound, hill or hillock as there fish in the Gironde. It does not derive, as some rather unkind individuals have postulated, from the French for sheep, mouton, although this might be suggested by the grazing pasture that abuts the estate. The vines are 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, planted at a density of 8 500 hectares, with an admirable average age of around 50 years.

There is also Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscadelle, for the estate’s white wine. Once harvested, fermentation is in 225 hectolitre vats of wood, with a maceration of 15 to 25 days. Then comes up to 22 months in oak before bottling. The grand vin is Chateau Mouton-Rothschild, of which there are 25 000 cases per annum, and the second wine Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild, introduced with the 1993 vintage (although the name Petit Mouton was only introduced the following year), and produced in only small quantities.

The white wine, Aile d’Argent, is predominantly Sauvignon Blanc sourced from a four hectare vineyard, and again produced in small quantities, typically 1200 cases per annum.

Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 98+ points
"A sensational effort, the 2006 Mouton Rothschild exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a classic Mouton perfume of creme de cassis, flowers, blueberries, and only a hint of oak. Dalhuin told me that in whisky barrel-tasting vintages such as 1989 and 1990, Mouton was aged in heavily-toasted barrels, and they have backed off to a much lighter toast for the barrels’ interior. I think this has worked fabulously well with the cassis quality fruit they get from their Cabernet Sauvignon. The full-bodied, powerful 2006 possesses extraordinary purity and clarity. A large-scaled, massive Mouton Rothschild that ranks as one of the top four or five wines of the vintage, it may turn out to be the longest-lived wine of the vintage by a landslide. The label will undoubtedly be controversial as a relative of Sigmund Freud, Lucian Freud, has painted a rather comical Zebra staring aimlessly at what appears to be a palm tree in the middle of a stark courtyard. I suppose a psychiatrist could figure out the relationship between that artwork and wine, but I couldn’t see one. This utterly profound Mouton will need to sleep for 15+ years before it will reveal any secondary nuances, but it is a packed and stacked first-growth Pauillac of enormous potential. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2060+." (Feb 2009)

Stephen Tanzer : 96+ points
"Bright ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of cassis, blueberry, cedar and graphite. Wonderfully pure and silky in the mouth, with great subtle, slow-building intensity and superb energy and thrust. A real essence of cabernet sauvignon and Mouton terroir This one really rattled my brain-in the gentlest way. As silky as it is, it possesses bottomless depths. Finishes with big but noble tannins and outstanding length. I loved this wine the spring after the harvest, and it’s even more impressive today. This should go on for decades, but today it’s hard to imagine this wine going through an extended sullen stage. By the way, I’m a great fan of Lucien Freud’s work, but his label for this wine does not do justice to the juice inside the bottle." (Jun 2009)

Wine Spectator : 94 points
"Complex aromas of crushed berries, cedar, mahogany and sweet tobacco follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. There’s also lots of coffee. Balanced and very beautiful already. Best after 2015." (Mar 2009)

Bettane et Desseauve : 19/20
"Magnifique texture satinée, liée à un travail d’élevage d’une précision admirable, grande puissance et grand raffinement, dans un équilibre magique." (2009)
