The last time I tasted the 1996 Mouton Rothschild (maybe a couple of years ago?), I recall it was a bit broody and closed. This showing was anything but! Deep garnet in color, it sashays out of the glass with lavishly dressed, gregarious crème de cassis, baked blackberries and plum pudding scents plus touches of menthol, fenugreek, star anise and sandalwood with fleeting glimpses at dried rose petals and oolong tea. The full-bodied palate is richly fruited, opulent and oh-so seductive, with bags of youthful black fruit and lovely finely grained tannins, finishing with fantastic freshness and length. This was tasted from jeroboam in September 2019.

Tasting note


The 1996 Chateau Mouton Rothschild is a testament to the grandeur of Pauillac wines, offering a symphony of dark ruby-red hues and a complex bouquet of black fruits, coffee, and a meaty character. The palate is greeted with a full-bodied experience, silky-smooth tannins, and a well-balanced structure. As the wine opens, it reveals a warm, ripe essence with a touch of opulence. The finish is warm with persistent fruit notes, making it a wine that continues to evolve and impress.
