Tasting Note:

The second wine from Mouton Rothschild has experience a road to Damascus style conversion. Okay, this is something of an exaggeration, it was never that bad, but, it could be a bit of a brute, now, we are delighted to report, it is a classy Pauillac that deserves serious attention. Produced from 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, it is fair to say that the second wines have definitely benefited from the reduced yields and smaller production of the Grand vins; there must be quite a lot of fruit that used to be utilized in Mouton that now finds its way into this cuvee. Cabernet perfume, graphite minerals, earth and warm cassis notes. Very ripe and pure with hints of stones and salts. Beautifully balanced; a floral and fresh Pauillac.
