Composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 1998 Mouton Rothschild is deep garnet-brick in color with lovely crème de cassis, dried roses, hoisin and baking spice notes with underlying notions of dried cherries and mulberries plus touches of wood smoke, incense and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied and packed with rich fruit framed by firm, chewy tannins, it is stacked with complex, evolving flavors and finishes with incredibly long-lasting perfumed notes. According to winemaker Philippe Dhalluin, this needs about three hours of decanting at this stage. I simply love the place this wine is in right now, possessing plenty of mature, tertiary characters yet still sporting bags of fruit. It won’t be fading anytime soon either and should cellar nicely for 20-25+ more years.

Tasting note


The 1998 Chateau Mouton Rothschild is a testament to the grandeur of Pauillac. This vintage reveals a medium to deep ruby-red hue, unfurling a nose of lifted cassis and black cherry, underpinned by cedar, vanilla, and a hint of cocoa butter. The palate is greeted with a tight-knit tapestry of lean redcurrant fruit and a generous dose of toasty oak. A firm backbone of fine, velvety tannins and a touch of milky smoothness on the finish promise a wine that will unfold spectacularly with time. Decanting for two hours is recommended to allow the complex flavors to emerge. Perfectly paired with roast lamb, Beef Wellington, or mature cheeses, this wine is a celebration of craftsmanship and terroir.
