Bordeaux 2016: Chateau Mouton Rothschild
01 June 2017

‘The new 1986 but better’ – James Suckling

This is a bold statement but in fairness, one that was echoed by Mouton’s director Philippe Dhalluin. Those who have tasted the 1986 will testify to its greatness. This 100 point wine is still a relative baby, it has aged at glacial pace and will continue to thrill the senses for many decades to come. The 2016 Mouton is clearly an exceptional wine too. As it sat in our glasses it grew in stature, revealing new layers and nuances with each subsequent tasting. This is a deeply profound Mouton with a long future ahead. And there are unmistakable similarities to the great Moutons of the past; the exotic complexity, the precision and the sheer commanding presence. A resemblance to the legendary 1986, for sure; only time will tell if this surpasses its celebrated forebear. A magical Mouton.
