Grand Vin Pauillac 2009
Château Mouton-Rothschild is the most glitzy of the First Growths and the only wine to have ever been upgraded in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. According to Wine Advocate: “Mouton is unashamedly gregarious, flamboyant and melodramatic… a splash of colour in what can be a monochromatic region.”
Mouton-Rothschild 2009 has been phenomenally well received by the critics, but particularly by the world’s most powerful one...
99 points, “The 2009 Mouton-Rothschild is as concentrated as the 2010, but it presents itself in a more consumer-friendly, seductive style. Opulently textured and full-bodied with gorgeous levels of crème de cassis, melted liquorice, espresso roast and chocolate, it possesses high but sweet, velvety tannins, massive body, and fabulous purity as well as length. This could turn out to be a candidate for perfection in another 8-10 years. It will drink well for 30-50 years, but will always be much more approachable and charming than its 2010 counterpart.” – Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
But what more would you expect from the legendary First Growth in a year that caused Master of Wine, Jancis Robinson, to ask: “Vintage of the decade/century?”
Mouton Rothschild’s labels change each year. 2009’s was created by Anish Kapoor, a sculptor, painter, visual artist and Turner Prize winner, who was born in Mumbai and settled in England. Famed for the ArcelorMittal Orbit created for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, his gouache design for the label hints at the richness, darkness and depth that awaits anyone who pulls the cork on this bottle.
