Chateau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 2006


The breadth and depth of this wine is impossible to ignore. Tobacco notes blend with cappuccino, cedar and grilled almonds. This is classy, with just the right amount of abandon. Grilled black fruits are very Mouton, but with the touch of austerity and pulled-in, pared-down tannins that tell you it’s 2006. Complex and complete.

WA: 96 pts; Vinous: 96 pts; James Suckling: 95 pts; Decanter: 95 pts.
