This 2004 Chateau Mouton Rothschild is a classic representation of Pauillac, France. It boasts a rich, pure cassis fruit aroma, beautifully complemented by clean cedary oak. The palate is laden with fresh cassis and blackcurrant fruit, with a fine tannic structure that harmoniously combines suppleness and grip. The wine is medium to full-bodied, but not heavy, with a balanced alcohol content. The finish is long, complex, and very harmonious, making it a truly distinctive and stylish wine. It pairs well with red meat, game, and mature cheese.
