Château Mouton Rothschild

The Château Mouton Rothschild is known to all wine lovers, not only for its exceptional wines but also for its labels signed by artists since the 1945 vintage. Its history began in 1853 when Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild bought the Château Brane-Mouton from Pauillac, which he renamed Mouton-Rothschild and for which he undertook numerous restructuring works. In 1922, his great-grandson Philippe de Rothschild took over the reins for the next 65 years, and it was he who raised Mouton Rothschild to the top of its gLoire thanks to his determination and perseverance. A quest for excellence that will be pursued by his daughter, Baroness Philippine.

By an official decree issued in 1973 by Jacques Chirac, Minister of Agriculture at the time, the Château Mouton Rothschild will be declared as the fifth I Grand Cru Classé, alongside Château Lafite-Rothschild, Château Haut-Brion, Château Latour and Château Margaux.

Today it is Baroness Philippine's three children who manage Domaine, always remaining faithful to the work of their grandfather and mother. The Domaine remains a space of art and beauty thanks to its spectacular vat room and its famous Wine in Art museum, which brings together the unique exhibition "Art and the Label" with the works of famous contemporary artists (Francis Bacon, Dali, Braque...) who have illustrated the labels of the great wine since 1945.

The Château Mouton Rothschild benefits from exceptional natural conditions, both for the quality of the soils composed of gravel and for the exposure and sunshine. The vineyard is composed of 84 hectares of vines planted in red with 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot, intended for the production of the grand vin as well as the Second wine, the Petit Mouton of Mouton Rothschild. The vineyard also has a few hectares of white vines, planted with 53% Sauvignon Blanc, 35% Semillon, 11% Sauvignon Gris and 1% Muscadelle, destined for the production of the white wine Sec, Aile d'Argent.

Everything is meticulously cared for at Château Mouton Rothschild, from the work in the vineyard to the aging process, offering delicate, complex wines with incredible aromatic depth. Aile d'Argent is a very great white wine Sec, particularly aromatic with great length and balance.

Description Le Petit Mouton de Mouton Rothschild 2008.

With its deep, intense color, Petit Mouton 2008 impresses with its charming nose of pronounced expressions of red fruits and sweet spices.

Raspberry, redcurrant but also tobacco come together greedily.

In the background, wood comes to bear witness to barrel aging.

On the palate, it reveals itself to be elegant and balanced. The well-integrated tannins offer a supple texture.

The red fruit aromas are confirmed, bringing great freshness.

Appreciable now, it still has lovely ageing potential.

All in all, a Second wine that perfectly reflects the excellence of Château Mouton Rothschild.
