Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1er Grand Cru 2019 - Pauillac
Dunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, dezente Randaufhellung. Feine schwarze Beerenfrucht, ein Hauch von Cassis und Lakritze, frische Mandarinenzesten, Nuancen von Zedernholz, das Bukett übt sich in nobler Zurückhaltung. Komplex, stoffig, superelegante Textur, feine süße, reife, lange anhaftende, seidige Tannine, tolle Dichte, reife Herzkirschen, mineralisch, feine Würze, überzeugende Länge, sicheres Reifepotenzial, wird früh in die Genussreife eintreten, daher für entsprechenden Vorrat sorgen.
This is incredibly complex, with all the cabernet descriptors, from mint and lead pencil to blackberry, blackcurrant and menthol. It changes all the time in the glass, just as in the nose. Yet, it remains cool and classy. Full-bodied with very fine, tight tannins that run the length of the wine, carrying on and on and on. Well-framed and compact wine. Never-ending procession of currant, berry and black cherry fruit, together with licorice, earth and just a hint of black truffle. 90% cabernet sauvignon, 9% merlot and 1% petit verdot. Give this until 2028 to show its true greatness.
The 2019 Mouton Rothschild is the most dramatic of the Médoc first growths, soaring from the glass with aromas of cassis, blackberries and violets mingled with rich aromas of cedar, cigar wrapper, licorice, loamy soil and spices. Full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's deep and powerful, with huge levels of concentration and an ineffably complete, seamless profile, concluding with a long, resonant finish. Plenty of ripe tannin is hidden by its ample core of fruit, and despite its youthful polish, this will require plenty of bottle age to realize all its potential. This blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot tastes in many respects like the 2016 Mouton's more sun-kissed cousin.
