Tasted at the Mouton-Rothschild vertical in London, the 2008 Mouton Rothschild has always been in the shadow of the ensuing couple of vintages, but I was not the only person at this tasting that commented upon the class in show here. It replicated previous showings: cedar and graphite present and correct, though accompanied by something a little more exotic - eucalyptus maybe? The palate is beautifully balanced, very detailed and extremely fresh. This conveys so much energy and animation before reverting towards a more classic and structured, pencil lead finish. Those in the know will stash up on the 2008 Mouton Rothschild because it is destined to turn into one of the "dark horses" of the decade. Tasted May 2016.

Tasting note


The 2008 Chateau Mouton Rothschild from Pauillac is a testament to the art of winemaking. This vintage exudes a medium ruby-red hue with a rich tapestry of aromas, including cassis, creamy cocoa butter, and a hint of vanilla. The palate is graced with blackcurrant fruit, elegantly framed by fine oak that contributes a subtle bitterness, balanced by fresh acidity and a warming finish. Decanting for two hours will allow its complexities to unfold, making it an ideal companion to hearty dishes such as roast beef, game, and rich cheeses.
