The 1999 Chateau Mouton Rothschild is a testament to the grandeur of Pauillac. This vintage exudes a medium to deep ruby-red hue with a bouquet of opulent blackcurrant and ripe black cherry, elegantly intertwined with notes of cocoa-butter and vanilla. The palate is greeted with fresh acidity and velvety tannins, while the new oak marries lusciously with dark fruits, creating a rounded and smooth structure. The alcohol is harmoniously balanced, and the finish is impressively persistent. This wine, while already showing its pedigree, will continue to evolve gracefully.
