Chateau Mouton Rothschild is a Classified First Growth in Pauillac that encompasses 222 acres of vineyards grown in gravelly-stone subsoils. Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild acquired the property in the 18th century. In 1922 it was passed down to Baron Philippe de Rothschild and after his death in 1988, his daughter Baroness Philippine de Rothschild held the estate. Managing director Philippe Dhaullin's innovations were instrumental in elevating the celebrity status of this chateau and the style of their wines.
Chateau Mouton Rothschild:
Mouton continues to overachieve under the direction of Philippe Dhaullin. With 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine has an impenetrable opaque color with pure scents of wildflowers and a potpourri of Mediterranean spices. It gracefully coats your palate with a compote of dense black and blue fruits, revealing an abundance of sophistication. The tannins are finely-grained throughout and the finish persists until the next day. A rock star of the vintage, this flawlessly crafted wine should effortlessly evolve for decades.
Chateau de Clerc Milon:
The Clerc Milon is almost Northern Rhone-like in style. Shades of deep crimson expose an opulent core framed with roasted coffee, saddle leather and cedar. It is medium to full-bodied in style and packed to the brim with dark red plums. This multidimensional wine is mouth-filling and balanced at the same time. Approachable with freshness at every turn, it will lead you to a memorable finale.
